[Tlhingan-hol] yet another Terran word of Klingon origin

De'vID (de.vid.jonpin@gmail.com)



Today I learned that the Chinese dish BBQ pork (叉燒, often Anglicised
as "char siu") is a dish of Klingon origin. It comes from the phrase
{char Suy'}, "the shooey is slimy", where of course a {Suy'} is a
Klingon animal which faintly resembles a Terran pig.

In adapting the dish, the Terrans have not only replaced the Klingon
animal with the much milder Terran version, they have also burnt the
meat!

Look here if you're interested in this Terran imitation dish:
