Klingon Phrases

The two shown "klingons" use simple masks, so it is intentionally visible that these are disguised Humans, and not really Klingons. The background of a comic book store underline this theory.

The used phrases are both taken directly from The Klingon Dictionary. The pronunciation is not perfect, but not bad either.
right person: nuqneH What do you want? A standard Klingon greeting
left person: nuqDaq yuch Dapol? Where do you keep the chocolate? A phrase to catch someone's attention.
