Pikin' to the Dusties

I had forgotten all about Boontling - when I lived in the Bay Area it was something everyone knew about.  But now it's endangered.  Sigh.  I guess calling it an invented "language" is slightly overstating the case - it sounds like it's just lexical substitution - but it's a lot more extensive than you'd expect, not to mention truly cool.  (HT to JJ for the story.)
