No, not at all!

The "which is so alien that is crawling with terran puns" part of the
sentence was written, because I was fed up by all the
"klingon-alien-language" crap.

It wasn't my intention to imply that because there are a ton of terran
puns, we need to attribute to the {vay'} conclusions drawn from English.

Sorry for not clarifying this from the start. It's just that my disgust for
all this "alien crap" bled through to the original post.
