Over drinks, Jim told this story:
"People think Spock has no sense of humor. Wrong. He's laughing inside all the time, usually at us. Listen to this!
"As a little way of pranking his dad, who travels a lot, Spock told the Fleet menu chefs that Plomeek was this Vulcan delicacy. Now everywhere Sarek goes there's this big hoopla over the fact that they have provided Plomeek to honor him..."
Jim struggled to maintain his composure.
"Plomeek is a very humble food, like Vulcan peanut butter!" Jim broke up laughing.
"Peanut butter!" he gasped. "You gotta admit THAT WAS GOOD!"
