Anecdotes about Klingon

There are several strange and incredible stories about Klingon around on the web.

I met my wife at a Star Trek convention...

This is a story quoted lots of times, written by a person named "Max". (1) The story is most likely absolute nonsense: First, there are very few people in the world who really speak Klingon in a useful, fluent manner (see MOVED TO... fluent speakers). Next, there is no way a native French speaker could be more fluent in Klingon than in English, since most of the material for learning Klingon is available only in English - there is no French Klingon dictionary.

I met my wife at a Star Trek convention. She was study abroad from France and spoke little English, and I didn't know a lick of French. So, for the first few months of our relationship, we communicated by speaking Klingon.-Max

Flat tire

There is an old story where there was an American guy on a vacation in Japan. He was walking somewhere along the street when he saw a person who had a problem with his car, maybe a flat tire, or engine problems. He walked over to him offering his help, but the japanese person did not speak a single word of english. He then noticed that the American was wearing a pin of the KLI so he realised that he would understand Klingon, which he did speak, so they continued their conversation in Klingon.

There was a guy who wanted to fool a servant at McDonald's by asking for the bathroom in Klingon. He was quite surprised when the waiter understood the klingon question and answered by saying "right over there".
