'Maltz said he once heard about a non-Klingon who reported that Klingons said "Tuesday" when expressing their wish that something turn out well. He said the writer of that report misunderstood. The expression is indeed {povjaj}, but it means "may it be excellent" and only coincidentally is it homophonous (my word, not Maltz's) with the word for Tuesday." (Marc Okrand; printed in the exercise book of qepHom wa'maH cha' [11/07/2013])

Tuesday is Klingon Boggle night on CBS's "The Big Bang Theory".
