This probably isn't the right place to suggest a sentence; I can't find the original link. But,...

patat 'oQqar quv yIvutQo' , isn't that good Klingon?

Thanks for responding. I thought it says, "Don't cook the honored potato!"

Wouldn't the other read, "patat 'oQqarmey quv yIvutQo'"?

Actually, I was mistaken: it can only mean Don't cook the honored potato. The verb prefix yI- makes it unambiguous that the object is singular.

It says Don't cook honored potatoes.

    On the subject of bizarre sentence suggestions:

    jentu' yISugh. "Install a jentu [into office]."

    Here was the original thread: https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/26822278 You can find it in the popular sentences tab as well.

    No Sugh, I'm afraid.

    Lingot for pointing to the main discussion, though!
