At strictly formal meetings under the austere and ever vigilant look of the King of Klingon on a gala night you would probably refrain from using it. No telling what he would do--not at the slightest mention of any of its syllables, he might get seethingly irritated and order you out of court altogether. Or worse, order you shot. On the spot.
No telling how our honorable president would react to it either. Would he welcome it? Would he hem-haw you to death? Would the president's unruly vassals prod you with the shortest of all scepters and then have you thoroughly blah-blah'ed over nothing as in this annoying report?
I rest my (suit)case.
