SURVEY: Scariest Short Sentences in Your ConLangs

From:Tom Chappell <tomhchappell@...>

Reputedly the scariest five-word sentence in North American English is

"Daddy, I want a pony."

And, the scariest ten-word sentence in U.S. American English is reputedly

"We're from the government, and we're here to help you."


What are the scariest 5-word and 10-word sentences in your ConLangs?

(Or, similar-length sentences; polysynthetic languages can use fewer words, of course;
isolating languages can use more.  Or you can have a 7-syllable and a 12-syllable sentence;
or an 8-morae and a 19-morae sentence.  Or whatever)


Same for your NatLangs, if you want.


Hope it's fun,
