Does this mean the mustache is appearing, or is it escaping? Do Klingons
imagine that mustaches are imprisoned underground by their face, and when
they "grow" a mustache, it's the hairs actually escaping? Is it possible to
simply refuse permission for the mustache to escape/appear, i.e., {nargh
lochwIj 'e' vIchaw'Qo'}?
