They are without honor.

Guy who had his stupid gibberish letter thrown away and got fired as a no-call no-show.

They all are.  If you don't conjugate correctly, you'll get your spleen ripped out with a mek'leth.

The Official Flag of the Association of Klingon Grammar Nazis is really something to see. Very rarely displayed in public though.

The people who would know how to speak Klingon are the wimpiest members of society, is that irony?
 
2014-01-08 10:18:46 AM
Interesting fact:  It wasn't actually in Klingon, it was in Hebrew.

I thought it was the Na'kuhl that were Nazis, not Klingons.

Wouldn't they be grammar Klingons?
 
2014-01-08 10:22:28 AM
I wondered if the translation might be suspect. I didn't think there'd be a word in Klingon for resign.

If you speak Klingon, chances are you are a committed fan of STAR TREK.

If you are a committed fan of STAR TREK, chances are you prefer to be called a Trekker, rather than a
Trekkie, and will get mortally offended if someone refers to you with the latter appellation.

If you want to be called a Trekker, chances are you probably watched early TNG, and the entirety of VOY
and ENT just so you can complain about it online.

If you did that, chances are you are pickier than the average fan.

Ergo:  you are also most likely a grammar Nazi.

QED, really.

Well, they would hardly be grammar Quakers now, would they?

If people who correct grammar are "grammar nazis" wouldn't that make people who suck at grammar "grammar jews"?  It would also stand to reason that people who disagree with this would be "Grammar Holocaust™ Deniers".  Do you find yourself often being corrected for the improper use of semitecolons?

Just hoping to get my unused 27 year old star Trek TNG lunch box signed by Frakes this year.

Hey, If I was going to learn another language I would probably pick Klingon.

Its unrefined, barbaric and uncouth - basically everything that French isn't, whats not to love?
 
2014-01-08 10:44:07 AM
pIqaD, And How to Read It

And of course http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Klingon_language

And Google search results.

However unfortunately Google itself does not translate Klingon. It does try Hebrew: כל הנאצים חייבים למות

FTFA:  1. You could submit the valid re-translation of Waddell's letter provided by James William McCleary, a commenter on the  Charlotte Observer article, which begins "vengvaD paQDI'norgh tay yIghojmoH!" (Teach civilized teachings to the city!)

Right, because that's so much better.

I've been poking at Spanish off & on for years. I can sort of read a newspaper with a dictionary and if I'm trapped in a country that eats burritos I might not starve.

You probably could also care less that there are English grammar (and spelling) Nazis.

In a way, it's very comforting to know there are people more OCD than me. In a very similar way, it's unbearably sad to know that.

I think you are wrong. But I certainly support putting people who confuse their and there in camps of concentration.
