Um, where's the "if"?  Another wish for Nick's irrealis, I guess.  But
without some sort of irrealis, we're left wondering if you're really faced
with the choice: sounds like someone musing.  "Hmm.... I have to be lame or
else I have to be corrupt.  I'd rather be lame".  'Course, where would you
put the "-chugh" then?  My preference is on both the verbs, making it
"jIrIghnISchugh pagh jIqalnISchugh...".
