I think it sounds at least as weird in Klingon as it does in English,
but it is understandable.  Barely. :-)  Using {'e'} as the object of
a "to be" verb is one of those things I'd expect to see infrequently.
Very infrequently.  Like maybe once a year. :-P

In this particular case, {vIHoH rIntaH} seems almost tailor-made for
the idea in your English translation.
