Klingons Do Not Laugh

K is for Klingons do not laugh.  Do Klingons and humor mix? A lot has been said about Star Trek TNG being a little off key in its first season. In this second episode of "Star Trek: The Next Generation of "The Naked Now,"

I think you'll agree Commander Data, Captain Picard and Klingon Worf's dry wit is a real winner! You decide.....skip ahead to 0.56sec....

Lt. Cmdr. Data: There was a rather peculiar limerick, being delivered by someone in the shuttlecraft bay. I am not sure I understand it... "There was a young lady from Venus, whose body was shaped like a... "
Capt. Picard: Captain to Security, come in!
Lt. Cmdr. Data: Did I say something wrong?
Lieutenant Worf: I don't understand their humor either.

Do Klingons laugh?

Laugh Long and prosper, Trekkers

Klingons definitely laugh. Perhaps not at the same things, but they laugh. Privately.

Klingons do laugh, they just don't find too many things that funny. Also I hear if they laugh too hard they wet themselves a little... which is why Vulcans don't laugh

There's no earthly way of knowing.
Which direction we are going!

Come Visit: You know you want to know if me or Hollywood... is Nuts?

When Klingons laugh, it's because they are trying to mask the uncomfortable moment when they have, ah, passed gas.

Well, looks like Worf and I probably will not be getting beers in the near future. Dick jokes are pretty much all we've got.

I Like startrek so I will return for another visit

I always liked Worf's sense of humor.

Jeffrey Scott said...

Kirk and Kang both enjoyed some merriment in the TOS episode, "Day of the Dove". Quite an interesting story.

I thought all Klingons did was growl.

Oh I have seen them laugh-more like a beerhall "let's have another round before we beat up Sven over there" style but they do laugh. I love that Star Trek episode

Sarah Allan said...

Hmm...I'll bet they do have a sense of humor, but it's likely very different than ours. Happy A-Zing!

I thought I heard a Klingon laugh once, but then he tried to kill me. :)

You should catch the Klingons at Happy Hour. Kareoke and laughing fills the night.

Klingons do not laugh says Worf. Not so, according to Guinan. "Oh yes they do. Absolutely they do. You don't. But I've heard Klingon belly laughs that'll curl your hair."
