In today's (23/3/94) issue of "The Daily Telegraph Mirror",
buried away on page 48, was an article entitled "Pizza for
the Trekkies" :

	"Pizza Hut has produced the first completely non-
	English advertisement to be screened on British
	television : in the Star Trek language of Klingon."

	"The firm was helped by Paramount Studios, which 
	produces the TV series and also devised a Klingon
	dictionary and a book on speaking Klingon."

	"Klingon can now be studied as a language at some
	American universities. The ad ends with 'kroar bratek
	slucks' which in Klingon means 'For a Star Trek Next
	Generation Cup' and the catchphrase 'Hit the Hut'
	translates as 'ritke bech plic'."
