Flogging a Dead Horse: The Thrill of the Hunt

One of my favorite things to do at conventions is to stalk the wily yet playful creature known as the Klingon impersonator. This week, I have decided to share my secrets with you, the fans.

Now many of you are probably wondering where the term “Klingon Hunting” comes from. A quick check of the American Heritage Dictionary reveals “hunt” to be defined as the “pursuit of game for food or sport” and a “Klingon” as “mutonic freak from, like, Idaho who sticks a big lump of clay on his forehead and hangs out with groups of like-minded individuals at conventions.”

Me: Well, this is too bad. What floor are you going to, mate?

Klingon: Scr’blth’ grr! (Translation: I am a bank manager).

Me: Say again?
