There was a joke some years ago on the list (not by Okrand) that when a
Terran asks a Klingon the correct way to translate "Merry Christmas," the
Klingon should tell the Terran to say /DaH HIHoH/ to the next Klingon he
meets.  The Klingon then watches the happy Terran walk up to a Klingon and
say (in Klingon), "Kill me now."
