You go there in legendary Birds of Prey.
And when you have arrived, the doors are soon
open and functional, because you are happy.
Fully functional, because of there being happiness about.
Today it is a truly beautiful
day of the daytime star...

I was all ready to snark in my disaffected slacker Gen-X fashion, but I was secretly moved.

What are the odds a person with the nickname 'Guy Smiley' who speaks Klingon would read a post on the Sesame Street song in Klingon?

The internets, what a country!

I'm pretty sure that somewhere between "People who would see a movie based on Halo" and "Fish" is an entry for "People who post snarky comments about other people on the Internet."

That said, you have not experienced Sesame Street until you have watched it in the original Klingon.

You may want to reconsider the position of that in light of recent news...

Re: the decending lists... well, I've always liked this one, for it's snark.
Sesame street: I like my groinal area and want to keep it, so I wouldn't presume to argue with a Klingon about... anything, really.

yay snark.

Make fun all you want. At least in this version, Elmo gets what's coming to him.

(And the episode where Mr. Hooper died and they all did the Death Howl was very moving.)

Now there's an interesting mix.

It wasn't complete until we had someone named spock posting in a star trek thread.

Nah, it was complete once we had Guy Smiley.

"Klingon, or Hebrew"? sounds like a game show.

Also, I like the idea of Jewish Klingons. Can you imagine the bris?

As a lifelong Trek fan, I just have to say...

*speechless*

But I don't argue with Klingons about what makes them happy. Unless my position is extremely strong.

People who name their baby after Superman's birth name on the planet Krypton.

Actually, my first thought at reading about that was 'what an idiot', but then I remembered that his wife is Korean, and Kal-El follows the (almost always) 2-syllable given name convention in Korea (although neither syllable is one you'd probably ever actually see), so I started to see it as a very sweet concession to his wife's ethnicity, as well as pure goofy geekery.

What, did y'all just get on the net on Monday? I saw that when it was first posted. Geez, I feel old now. Thanks.


The commentary has been amusing though.

Imagine the wedding. They wouldn't be crushing a glass I can tell you that.
And Jewish music with Klingon Opera?

Circle dance slamdancing?

I'd love to see the Klingon version of the chair dance.

This thread is useless without audio of the above passage as read by Michael Dorn.

I second evilcolonel's statement. Maybe he'd do it if we all donated to his favorite charity. Or paid his bar tab.
posted by weirdoactor at 11:42 AM on October 5, 2005


I would donate money for Michael Dorn to dress up as Worf and read passages from the Torah. And then sing Hava Nagila. In Klingon.

When I get all steamed-up, resistance is futile. You will hear me shout. You will be tipped over and poured into Borg. I translated "I Am A Little Teapot" into Lojban and back into English. You have to scroll a little ways down the page to find it, but if you're amused by Sesame Street in Klingon, you'll be amused by this too.
