Drinking with Klingons
Drinking with Klingons

… All I’m sayin’ is, if you ever get invited to hang out with a group of Klingons, you should totally do it. Those guys know how to party!! (Also, never try to keep up with the Klingon chick in the leather bustier. She may be small, but she will drink you under the table!) Qapla’!

In other news, the move is over, so things should be getting back to normal around here!!

Also, don’t forget that this Saturday, the 2nd, is Free Comic Book Day!!! If you’re in Edmonton, come on and join the festivities out at the various Happy Harbor locations around town – I’ll be there, hanging out and maybe doing a little drawing!

  1. It’s a bit disconcerting to see a Wookiee wearing a Starfleet communicator.

    The Klingon chick almost looks like a dwarf. That’s probably why she can drink you under the table.

    Very impressive that you got the drinking song accurate. I thought that only I was that nerdy.

    Indeed, Klingon parties are amazing! The last one i attended we even had duct-tape foam covered Battleths. The drinking, the “fighting”, the drinking games, and everyone trying to teach me klingon, which ended horribly, i still need to find out what they actually made me say…

    You know, the day this strip was posted was coincidentally the first day of this year’s Fed Con in germany. It is one of the biggest STAR TREK and Science Fiction Conventions in Europe.
    There is always a big group of klingons there. And yes, they KNOW how to party! 😀

  7. I didn’t mean it in a bad way, Soilent; I only meant that it felt odd to see two worlds colliding like that. Cool (like this clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNxhrPaaCA4 ) but odd. Just a bit of cognitive dissonance on my part. 😉

    I just wanted to say thank you for making it more acceptable to be a geek. I live in a small town where nothing is acceptable except the love of football and drinking beer out on the front lawn. Nothing to do here and no one to hang out with that share the same interests as me. I say thank you for making me feel like I am not alone with these comics!

    Never partied with LARPing Klingons but from what I’ve seen of them they’re more impressive than the on-line simming Klingons.

    I can say with certainty that I have, in fact, partied with Klingons. Namely the ‘crew’ of the IKV BLoodlust (THE LOUDEST SHIP IN *ANY* FLEET!), who attend a con I go to every year. I’m pretty certain I’ve met the same short one in leather, too.
    A warning for those who seek to party with the Klingons: They have POTENT booze. It will go down like water, then sneak up behind you with a Bat’leth. My favorite is the Combat Cocktail, which hovers around 50% alcohol, though the Honorable Death and the Revenge (A DRINK BEST SERVED COLD!) are quite tasty as well.

  11. Never drank with Kilingons before, but I did share a bottle of Sailor Jerry’s with a zombie and a stormtrooper in the bathroom at MonsterCon in NC. Any points for that? 🙂

    From experience Klingons tend to be very much like bikers they have a tendancy to carry small flasks of exotic alcohol… or possibly jet fuel that they offer to poor unsuspecting passers buy *grin*
    these poor unfortunates have a tendancy to wake up the next morning missing large sections of their memory possibly with a traffic cone…
