After a couple weeks of thinking about it, ​I think​ I may have found the
pun. Bobby Pickett's classic novelty song "Monster Mash" was released in
1962 on Garpax Records. {tlhapragh} backwards is {gharpatlh}, which is
almost a transliteration of "Garpax". I say "almost" because "x" is usually
transliterated as {Q}, not {tlh}. Maybe Okrand wanted to mix it up a
little. (Or it wasn't intended as a pun on "Garpax" at all, and I've just
stumbled onto a tremendous coincidence.)
