I just got an ad/email from ThinkGeek which says,
Today marks the birth of two of our favorite actors: one a scruffy-lookin' archaeologist with a 4-year life span and the other a cowboy crooner. That's right. Happy birthday to both Harrison Ford and Sir Patrick Stewart.
On the Harrison Ford side, I get that scruffy-lookin' refers to Leia's famous "scruffy-looking nerf-herder" line from ESB, and archeologist refers to Indiana Jones, but 4-year life span has me stumped.
On the Patrick Stewart side, I have absolutely no idea what cowboy crooner has to do with anything I've seen Captain Picard/Professor X do.
(With my luck, the missing references will turn out to have nothing to do with science fiction or fantasy, and this'll get moved to Movies & TV, where I don't have an account... well, here goes nothing, anyway.)
