Re: Klingon WOTD: DuDwI' (noun)

Doq (doq@embarqmail.com)



Likely, it has something to do with using the third toe, since {roS}  
means both "use the third toe" and "lick", and if you do it badly, you  
get paralyzed.

I wonder if Klingons would consider it an insult to be called a "third  
toe licker". Sounds kinky enough, anyway.
