I found his challenge verbose.  A simple scream of rage is sufficient.  You scream and you leap.

Thought this would be General Martok. I am disappoint.

(pedant) Screaming and leaping is Kzinti behaviour, not Klingon. (/pedant)

A non-verbal interpretive dance wearing a stuffed codpiece under a white leotard would have been more threatening....

Well at least he didn't bring fresh Gagh to work for the potluck lunch.

Drinking the blood of a freshly killed targ would have sealed it.

Someone must have gotten between him and the blood wine.

TFA: Alvarez called the letter childish and unprofessional. "It's an embarrassment for Indian Trail, and it's an embarrassment for North Carolina," he said.

To which I'm sure Waddell replied, "bup neH, vaj 'e' HIchop. je quvHa' qa'wIj tlhaQ HoSchoH."

/"I just quit, so bite me. And grow a damn sense of humor."

And yet humans keep winning.  How do you explain that?

Is there a Klingon word for loneliness? Ah, yes.

Good point.  Those sissy Klingons waste so much time posturing and beating their chests.

But what an awesome resignation!   That is the way to tell them they are a bunch of a$$clowns.

Laobaojun: what an awesome resignation!


Yes. Because nothing prepares you for public office like maximum herp.

nulluspixiusdemonica: Laobaojun: what an awesome resignation!

Yes. Because nothing prepares you for public office like maximum herp.


Based on observed patterns,  yes.  Because calm and rational discussion is not an option in American politics these days.

/Goldwater was right.

A real Klingon would've slaughtered his enemies on the council and forcably taken control of it, or died trying, not run away like a scared little coward!

Considering the fake classes thing I read about in fark yesterday, this is small potatoes.

Unless he's just miffed that it wasn't in English, the perfect language that Jesus used to write the bible.

Came for the Bat'leth battle -- leaving disappointed.

Ugh. Klingons. They can't go five minutes without getting all stabby, their food is crawly and disgusting, their obession with "honour" is creepy and disturbing, their wine is full of blood clots and their language sounds like a cat coughing up a hairball.

Round them all up and send them back where they came from!

Waddell ended his four-sentence resignation letter by paraphrasing a Klingon proverb: "Perhaps today is a good day (to) resign."

Awesome.

JonnyBGoode: /"I just quit, so bite me. And grow a damn sense of humor."


This.

Came here to post this.  I never get to post the really good quotes.

FTFA - "It's an embarrassment for Indian Trail, and it's an embarrassment for North Carolina," he said.

After all the crap I see going on in NC these days, and THIS was an embarassment to North Carolina???

"Why don't you wake up and smell what you shovelin'!"

/I hate to cross quote, but the Die Hard line works the best in this instance.
//Anyone who knows about Indian Trail should not be surprised about what Mr. Waddell is complaining about. I am surprised they have any land left to build on, and they could care less about impact. They just want to make the place into a little, whitewashed city. Then, as with all such monied development, once they have effectively created their little hell, they will go out like locusts and do it to another small town nearby. These people want their town to become like a major city, and then when it happens, they complain about how the town 'lost its charm'. Get ready for a Starbucks and a Macys in Midland!

People usually run because they don't like the way things are going. And that's why he quit?
 
2014-01-03 10:05:40 AM  
A LETTER!?
THAT IS HOW A P'TAK. RESIGNS!

A REAL KLINGON WOULD RIP THE HEART OUT OF THE MAYOR AND FEED IT TO HIS TARG.

/not shouting that just how they talk

This is real? This is not from the next episode of Parks & Recreation?

As a Romulan might say, only a  veruul would use such language in public .

FTFA:  He said he also needed to devote time to mount a write-in campaign on the Constitution Party's platform for Kay Hagan's U.S. Senate seat.

So what you mean is, he resigned to spend more time with his wingnuts.

I'd find it way more effective if it actually communicated a coherent problem instead of just a few random non sequiters. Still, not a bad idea...
