Klingon word: 	Qay'
Part of speech: 	verb
Definition: 	blow one's top

(HQ 10.2:11):  the phonetic identity of {Qay'} "use the little toe" and {Qay'} "blow one's top, lose one's temper" is probably not accidental, as evidenced by the idiomatic expression {'oy'qu' Qay'wI'wIj}, literally "my little toe aches a lot", which means I'm extremely angry
