And he STILL gets shot twice and winds up rising from the dead.

(Robert Wise swears up and down he didn't notice or intend any Christ imagery associated with Klaatu.)

I wonder how many Private Eye readers will catch the reference.

At least a few - I know several SF fans that read it.

One of my Forgotten Futures adventures had a lot of aliens in it. When I was play-testing I used variations on that phrase every time an alien was talking:

(hostile sentry) - Klatu! Baradu nickto! (gestures with weapon)
(lovingly) - Oh Klatuuuuu! Klatu baradu....

and so forth. As one of the players said, "Obviously a language of few words but many subtle meanings."
