Hee hee!

The exact thing I said was:

SubomlI'be'.  SubomtaHqu'!

There was a pause, while everyone tried to figure out what I had said (this
WAS only qep'a' wejDIch, after all), and then Krankor got it and started

And it was in that moment that I realized my destiny would lead me to a life
of Klingon stand-up comedy . . . .
