Today's XKCD is a TNG-related joke.

Re: Darmok Humor

You may be in for a treat, then...it's a comic with a lot of science/geek humor.

Re: Darmok Humor

What would Tamarian stand-up comedy be like?

"Temba, flew in...his arms tired."

"My wife...taken, please?"

Re: Darmok Humor

Great episode, but so ripe for parody.

(imagines Picards's voice
Picard and Darmok... at Tahiti
The drinks this tall (hands gesture vertically)
The natives... their breasts this big (hands gesture horizontally, somewhat cupped)
Shaka! The gates opened!
Temba! His trousers dropped!


And a few more:
Tasha Yar
Tasha Yar at Vagra II
A tar man, a tar man of great evil.
Tasha Yar in the tar,
her face marked
Tasha Yar, her butt parked.
Yar, her soul away very far.

Commander Riker
Commander Riker at Surata IV
A vine with a thorn
A show. A show in a bottle.
A thorn filled with microbes.
Bad memories.
The gates open, bad memories flood.
Shaka. A clip show.
Shaka. Our faces red.

Tamarian:
Metaphor?
Kadir, beneath Mo Moteh.
Sokath, his eyes still covered.
Shaka, when the walls fell.

Earthling:
I know what you mean. How the heck you people get anything done is beyond me.

Tamarian:
Sokath, his eyes opened!
