A Klingon letter written by a US politician named David Waddell left the locals befuddled (unless they happened to be Trekkies, or Klingons for Jesus).
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, it’s rumored the next movie in the Star Trek reboot series will feature the Klingon war.
The councilman from Indian Trail, North Carolina, sent in the Klingon letter but no one was able to read it. Eventually, somebody realized the lettering was from Star Trek and they translated it:
Teach (the) city (the) constitution. I will return next time to (witness) victory. Resignation occurs in 2014 the 31st of January. Perhaps today is a good day (to) resign.
Yep, a Klingon resignation letter. Waddell was originally slated to end his term in December of 2015 but felt now wasn’t the time to live long and prosper in obscurity on a lowly board. He’s resigning in order to help a new political write-in campaign underneath the Constitution Party that’s challenging Democratic Senator Kay Hagan.
The ending line is a reference to the famous Klingon phrase “it’s a good day to die,” and David Waddell says, “Folks don’t know what to think of me half the time. I might as well have one last laugh.” But Indian Trail Mayor Michael Alvarez isn’t finding the Klingon letter very funny and instead called it childish and unprofessional:
“It’s an embarrassment for Indian Trail, and it’s an embarrassment for North Carolina.”
What do you think of this man boldly going where no politician has gone before with a Klingon letter?
