[tlhIngan Hol] Klingon Word of the Day: tawleHnu' pogh

Not to be confused with a {pogh tawleHnu’}, which is merely the presumed perspective of a lost glove (the glove’s hopeless situation, assuming that a glove hopes to fulfill its role, covering a hand).

It’s not a commonly used term, except as an idiom that has thus far eluded translation.

Those who use it seem to also use {ratlhbogh pogh mob} as an alternative, similar to the use of {megh'an} and {‘er’In}.

Also, neither of these terms are EVER used in the presence of a SuvwI’ who has lost a hand in battle…

… except by an elite group of one-handed Klingon stand-up comics...
