The image supposedly is from a first season episode of The Carol Burnett Show. Surprisingly, little seems to be known about the details of why Leonard Nimoy is there in full Spock regalia. Some sources indicate that the skit uses Spock as a punchline for Burnett wanting baby advice from “Dr. Spock,” though is both supported and refuted, depending on what source you want to go with.

On the November 9 episode of ESPN NFL Kickoff, hosts Trey Wingo, Mark Schlereth, and Tedy Bruschi, all decided to have some fun. Apparently one of the hosts decided to make a reference to The Princess Bride, and then the hosts competed to jam as many references into a half-hour show as possible.
