Prediction: iRod Becomes Finnish Citizen in Record Time

Why?
HELSINKI (Reuters) - A Finnish member of parliament is aiming for re-election by campaigning with a translation of his Web site into Klingon, used in the TV series "Star Trek."
I tried to read his page, but I'm still not sure where he stands on Romulan-Vulcan intermarriage.

I heard that guy (briefly) interviewed on BBC radio the other day. The interviewer asked (sensibly enough) why not Vulcan, if what he's after is really world peace and brotherhood. The guy gave some lame answer about how for some reason, Trekkies just really like Klingons.

Learning Klingon? What a pussy. Everyone knows that learning Esperanta is where its at. Shatner speaks it, so it must be the balls.

Yeah, I can see why he wouldn't go with the Vulcans. That's so John Kerry.

Anything Shatner is cool. Dude's had a hairpiece for 30 years, but he still gets to photograph playboy centerfolds. Bastert.

There really are langauges from the old Star Trek?

How developed is Klingon?

My brother had a Klingon dictionary back in the 1980s, so it's been around awhile. {shame}I also attended a Klingon beauty pageant, in which women dressed as Klingon gave their Klingon lineage - in their "native" language.{/shame}

Hard to believe there's a Mrs. Thrillhous some days.

Can't speak for everyone, but there are days when I hang out on the "blogs & tubes," and I'm amazed anyone -- myself most definitely included -- every met a real, live woman.
