I'm putting on a science-fiction show and, of course, I thought of Klingon. I started to learn that langage but I'm facing troubles translating the following sentence : "Don't be stupid ! Come and see the show !"

All I could come up with is : "Qo' QIp! 'ej cha' legh"
but I'm really not sure...

Could someone help me ?

peQIpQo'! naDev yIghoS 'ej muchvam yIlegh!

I'm assuming that you're inviting people to come to a physical place to watch the show.

Yes, exactly. It's the conclusion of my trailer.

Thanks a lot !

By the way, don't ever rely on Bing for translating Klingon. It gets some of the words right, but has no understanding of grammar, and since the placement of words or word elements can change the meaning of a sentence, it sometimes produces a sentence that means something entirely different or even the complete opposite of what you want.

Qo' QIp doesn't mean "don't be stupid", it means "Don't! Be stupid!". 'ej cha' legh means "and he/she sees two".
