I would be more likely to invoke *Dogh* or *lI'be'* or something like that.

I suppose you could say something like *DujlIj vInuS*/I ridicule your 
ship,/ but why are you informing the listener about your ridicule rather 
than actually doing the ridiculing?

My wife uses the word /ridiculous/ so vaguely and frequently that I can 
never tell whether she's saying something is good or bad. "That price 
was ridiculous!" is something she might say, and I can't tell if she 
means the thing was surprisingly cheap or insanely expensive. Exactly 
what meaning of /ridiculous/ are you looking for? Use it in context.
