In it we learned about Replacement Proverbs ("to replace lost respect with newly earned respect after one has been embarrassed in a public setting") and Secrecy Proverbs ("used in situations where you want to show that you can keep a secret under *any* conditions").
> Several years ago, KLI members helped to discover a previously unknown Replacement Proverb (jagh yIbuStaH! "Focus on the enemy!") and Secrecy Proverb ('Iw HIq yap tu'lu'be'. "Sufficient bloodwine does not exist.").
> In conjunction with the Klingon Language Institute's qep'a' cha'maH vaghDIch, we are holding a competition to seek more proverbs. Each member of the KLI (paid or guest) is eligible to submit either a Replacement Proverb or a Secrecy Proverb. Those who have purchased a Supporting Membership to the qep'a' may submit both a Replacement Proverb and a Secrecy Proverb. Attending Members are allowed to submit two of each type, for a total of four proverbs.
> Entries may be saved and revised at any time until the contest closes June 25. The submissions will then be anonymously reviewed by a panel of experts, and a list of the best candidate proverbs will be given to Marc Okrand. He will announce a new Replacement Proverb and a new Secrecy Proverb at the qep'a' in July.
