Darmok and Jalad

If you don't read xkcd (online comic strip) you should there was a trek reference

http://xkcd.com/902/

(I suppose xkcd should go in the Science and Technology area since it pokes fun at that all the time...)

I love that Troi is there and she isn't even the one to figure the language out.

Technically, she can't because she only reads emotions. But then again, it is just a joke.

And considering how the president's car is referred to as The Beast...

"THE BEAST OF TANAGRA!"

Thus...Tanagra is The White House. Darmok and Jalad were opposites of a sort in their party--one an "Establishment" type, the other a "Populist" type.

They come together, to bring unity to the party in question.

And, they sail off on to victory:

"DARMOK AND JALAD...ON THE OCEAN."

Does anyone know where I can get on of these bumper stickers? I've been searching everywhere. My dad would probably pee himself if he saw that on his bumper.

It's not really a bumper sticker. It's just a photobomb I found somewhere online. Though, if you take it to any printing shop, they could probably make it into a real bumper sticker for you.
