What's a horga'hn pin ( or horgon for the uninitiated)?
Understanding the complexities of a Fandom inside joke is always a ride. But, this particular one was more peculiar than most.
I found out it's a statuette that represents a fertility symbol from the planet Rita. According to Memory Alpha Fandom, "displaying one publicly indicated that one was seeking jamaharon, a mysterious and pleasurable sexual practice native to that world." The statuette was first introduced in the "Captain's Holiday" episode.
Since I was still confused about what the horga'hn was exactly I took to reddit, and the replies were mostly a bunch of dudes fighting over who has gotten laid more times this week. But, then Twitter saved the day. So, here are a few of my favorite tweets on the effects of horga'hn:
I demand a refund.
I demand a refund. I got a horga'hn and Sally is not impressed and may never seek jamaharon with me again. https://t.co/rDT6maEa70— cegoodman2 (@cegoodman2)1547422923.0
