...and so we come full circle. To bring this back on-topic, I offer this
quote, from a charming piece of nonfiction writing that seems appropriate:

Now, it must be explained that Alex and I shared a particular
mode of writing to each other in "Moronese," and with the pen in my
left (wrong) hand I started scrawling, "Eye em thuh gost rydur."
--Neil Peart, "Ghost Rider"
