    ^ Isn't that always the way?

    But really, I'll bet Klingons have some pretty good swear words.

    Here's an interesting coincidence concerning speaking Klingon: Anyone watch last nights episode of The Simpsons? ("My Big Fat Geek Wedding")

    "Marge, you just agreed to raise the kids Klingon!"
    :guffaw:

    I watched a documentary by Marc Okrand on how he went about it. It was thoroughly enjoyable, speaking as a philologist.

    I know a few words of Klingon, but that's it.

    Now for the ultimate admission of geekdom: I am creating a language for the Cardassians and I use it in my fanfic.

    Geek alert! Geek alert! Geek alert! :)

    Of course, that phrase really should be in a banner at the top of the site...

    I've got two Klingon books and seem to have one phrase memorised; "Where do you keep the chocolate." I can say it, I sure as hell can't spell it.

    I've picked up a few words accidentally along the way watching it. But I think most have picked up a word or two...

    Oddly I have a bible quote I translated to annoy the Christian Heavyweight Champion, telling him he can't truly understand the bible until he'd read it in the original Klingon ;)

    There's an annual production of "A Klingon Christmas Carol", the Dickens classic performed in tlhIngan Hol each year in the Twin Cities in Minnesota. It's always been a one-night-only type of thing. This next year there will be a three-week run. Please come up and join us. Late-November/December is the perfect time to visit MN!

    For info on the last two years' worth of the show, you can go to

    No, but I do need to find a Klingon Bible to memorize some passages from.

    No. I've never felt the need to learn a fictional made-up language. Although I used to build models of the ships, etc. which the local hobby shop displayed. So in all honesty, I cannot claim to be totally non-geek... nor ridicule anyone who does study Klingon.

    Theres one online, but I don't think it's fully translated to fit the grammer, just word replacement.
