Pity he later left himself open to parody such as http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lionel_Nimrod%27s_Inexplicable_World

Yes, he should never have sullied his previously dignified career thus.









Try as I might to convince myself otherwise I cannot help but feel a profound loss at the news of Nimoy's demise. There are some components of one's life that can only hurt as they depart into the ether, and this was one.

Some people seem to like being parodied, Gilgamesh.  There was a story in the 1980s (not about Mr Nimoy) that some of the persons "sent up" on "Spitting Image" were quite fond of their puppets.  I have no idea whether the story is true or not.

Probably true of politicians - the only thing worse than being lampooned / cartooned is not being lampooned / cartooned. MPs are notoriously keen to buy the originals of cartoons, even those which savagely attack them. Prophets seem to take a different view - at least in the eyes of some of their adherants.

No word so far on whether Leonard Nimoy's death will be included in a future episode. My guess is that it will be at some point:

"In "The Excelsior Acquisition" (S03E16), Sheldon revealed that he had a restraining order from Leonard Nimoy after receiving a restraining order from Stan Lee. He unfortunately died on the 27th of February 2015, live long and prosper, a life well lived. Whether or not his death will be mentioned on the show(and the guys reaction to it, especially Sheldon's), is unknown."
