North Carolina Town Councilman Resigns In Klingon


Caitlin MacNeal – January 2, 2014, 4:17 PM EST13436

Indian Trail, N.C. town councilman David Waddell resigned from his post in Klingon, a language spoken by an extraterrestrial species in the famous series "Star Trek," the Charlotte Observer reported.

Waddell even ended his resignation with a Klingon proverb, "Perhaps today is a good day (to) resign."

The councilman wrote his four-line resignation letter in Klingon as an inside joke, and submitted an English translation and an extended letter entirely in English.

"Folks don’t know what to think of me half the time," Waddell said in a Thursday interview with the Observer. "I might as well have one last laugh."

I bet a Klingon councilman would have been fun. Couldn't be worse than some of the dopes we have around here.
