To confirm: To say "Don't use your toes to eat." (or "Don't eat with your toes!") , we'd say bISopmeH yaDDu'lIj tIlo'Qo'!, right?

This said, I have to wonder what generic "use" one might be making of his toes while eating.

I heard that Klingons can manipulate their toes more than humans. It sounds kind of not charming. wejpuH! The little girls in the videos were adorable but not so sure I would think the same of Klingon feet.

I think we need a cgi short film of Klingons using their dexterous feet.

I put "Don't use your toes while eating!" Why is this wrong?

I guess leaving out "you are" just didn't occur to us. I've added that version now.
