If you spill one of your friends, it is DEFINITELY time for a
Replacement Proverb. That might even constitute grounds for an
apology, depending on how badly you spilled your friend.

It is best not to try to make up your own Replacement Proverbs.
Klingons like these things kept rather traditional and their
response to creativity here is not entirely predictable. Maybe
they would think it was funny and like you for it. Maybe they
would think it was insulting and... well... That's not likely a
risk worth taking.
