"I had a beard once," said Kirk of the ISS Enterprise, watching Spock trim his goatee.

"Jim, it is impossible to imagine you with a beard. I suspect you of making that up."

"No, it's true!" Kirk laughed. "Lirpa loof!"

"What," asked Spock, "does 'loof' mean, and what does a Vulcan weapon have to do with a beard?"

Kirk continued laughing. "It has nothing to do with the Vulcan weapon! They're completely unrelated words. Lirpa is a Terran month; it comes before Yam and after Hcram. I can't believe you didn't know that."

"I did. It was as much of a non sequitur as the Vulcan weapon would have been, so I couldn't deduce from context which you meant. I still don't understand what you are talking about."

"You ignorant Vulcan! On the last day of Lirpa, you tell people things that are true but that they probably wouldn't believe. When they say you're lying, you yell 'Lirpa loof!'"

"That," said Spock, "is the stupidest thing I've ever heard, and is undoubtedly one of the outrageous lies you're constantly inventing. I refuse to believe there's any such day."

"Lirpa loof!" shouted Kirk, and started laughing again.

Spock lowered an eyebrow.
