This goes from a /how do I say?/ question into a /what would a Klingon
say?/ question, so here you must remember the advice about
straightforwardness from /Power Klingon/ and /Klingon for the Galactic
A Klingon would answer your question with a *HIja', HISlaH,* or
*ghobe',* and you'd be no closer to obtaining chocolate. If your
intention is to get chocolate, you should have said *jIHvaD yuchlIj
yIbon* instead, in which the Klingon would answer you *lu', luq,* or *Qo'.*
