Re: Worf's "child's uniform"

it's just an insult that was meant to imply that Starfleet isn't a "warrior's service."

Re: Worf's "child's uniform"

I always thought his gold Mr. Klingon sash was a child's uniform, and he didn't know enough about Klingons or he wasn't able to obtain a grown ups one. That's why in the next season he got rid of this child's uniform, the gold one, and started wearing a grown up's because he didn't realize he was walking around with a teenage sash the whole time, and he was embarassed and didn't want to get made fun of again. The humans don't give a shit, and he just says oh its my Klingon sash so he could wear it and look tough, but in reality he was wearing a child's uniform. You get the silver one after your coming of age ceremony and Word never bothered to look that up, just went around prouldly displaying his child's uniform in the whole first season, because, the guy was kind of a big headed blockhead back then, and he didn't seem very smart. So when the Kingon made fun of him he looked it up and found out after 12 ,Kingons wear silver sashes that are metal, not gold cloth ones with fringies. At least that's always what I thought it meant.

Do Klingon children play with uniforms or something?
I actually get angry at Eyeball Gowron slurring this at every motherfucking opportunity. Jesus, we get it, matey: you no like humans. Klingons da bad dudes.

I don't believe for one second that Klingons are tougher than humans. They're just louder and believe that honourrrrrrrrrrrr means you should growl and have a fight to the death whenever some lowlife insults your pet targ.

Given that our legal system is as harsh, if not more so in some cases, on people who harm dogs over people who harm children, this very well could be the course our culture is going toward.

I see what you did there.

As long as we don't start drinking blood wine and eating live gagh, I'm game.

Re: Worf's "child's uniform"

So it does refer to Worf's gold sash then right?

Yes, we've all read your post. All when you originally made it, quoted it to laugh at yourself saying it, and just now when you reminded us of it.

WE HAVE READ IT!

If we found it profoundly funny we would have said something. It's humorous but not that humorous, dude, and obviously not what the Klingons were talking about.

...a better question might be why didn't Worf have a decent retort?

"arrrrrrrrrre you a Klingon warrior or a fashion consultant!" Followed by a rather quick dismemberment.

He probably spent all evening thinking about what he could have said...

Re: Worf's "child's uniform"

The 2 Klingons that pointed out that Worf was wearing a "Child's uniform" have one thing in common. Worf killed both of them. So that shows me that any Klingon that say Worf wears a "Child's uniform" get a death sentence.

They are saying humans are children compared to Klingons.
