Klingon speakers required…

Apparently, a government office in Oregon is seeking fluent speakers of Klingon [1] in order to serve some of their clients.

 

I’ve admitted elsewhere to being a geek [2], but even I have to draw the line somewhere.

It seems to me that Klingonese is worthy of some academic interest, in that its one of the most completely formed fictional languages developed. But why does a public agency need staff that can speak the language? That seems pretty silly…

 

Well, ready the article closely, and it will begin to make sense. The agency treats mental health patients. And, apparently, some of their “clients” (read: crazy people) speak nothing but Klingon.

 

On the plus side, now there is gainful employment available for all those uber-geeks that learned Klingonese…
