New, improved Kitabkhana

Whyphor you read Kitabkhana in Babu English when you are having so much other option?

Courtesy The Dialectizer, my humble blog in:

1. Pig Latin:
Ifelay appenedhay ecausebay Iyay urnedtay ethay agespay~~Albertoyay Anguelmay

2. Elmer Fudd:
If you wook at the wist of the eighteen peopwe who get to choose the next Nobew Wauweate, the weawwy scawy bit is the yeaw of biwth
–two membews bown in 1918, eight bown in the 1920s, fouw in the 1930s, two in the 1940s, two in the 1950s. Oh, dat scwewy wabbit!

3. Redneck:
Salman Rushdie writes t’Amitava Kumar:

“Dear Mr Kumar,

Mah attenshun has been drawn t’yer website, whar yo’ claim thet ah thrett uped t’cancel mah viset to Vassar eff’n yo’ were involved wif it. This hyar is inaccurate. At no time did ah thrett up ennythin’ of th’ so’t. ah did indeed tell th’ o’ganizer, Joanne Long, thet ah was unwillin’ t’share a stage wif yo’, an’, af’er she had read whut yo’ haf writ about me in th’ past, she unnerstood whuffo’ ah w’d haf thet view, an’ axed yo’ t’stan’ down, as enny fool kin plainly see. It might haf been mo’e dignified of yo’ t’leave this hyar matter private, but as yo’ haf chosen not t’do so, yo’ ought at least t’strive fo’ accuracy in yer repo’tin’ of it.”

4. And the truly weird Swedish Chef:

Especially if you chain them: feed the output of one into another, to get Dubya the German buccaneer.
