It's inspired by a quote from Chomsky, who wrote "Colorless green ideas sleep furiously" to demonstrate a sentence that is completely grammatical yet semantically meaningless.

A better rendition might be pe'vIl Qong Dembogh qechmey 'ej SuDbogh.

Huh. I was gonna say, "Congrats on finding four words that don't belong in the same sentence with any of the others. I'm pretty impressed!" So I guess that was sorta the point . . .
