Canadians ‘Spock’ Their Bills to Honor Leonard Nimoy (PHOTO)

To honor the late, great Star Trek actor Leonard Nimoy, Canadians started to “Spock” their old $5 bills this past week.

Even better?

The Canadian government says it’s not illegal.

According to a Canadian bank spokesperson, while it’s not be illegal to deface the bills, they may not be kept in circulation long and retailers can refuse to accept them.

The call to “Spock” the bills started after the death of Nimoy, who passed away at 83 due to complications with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease on Feb. 27.

We personally think this is a great way to ensure that he continues to live long and prosper.
