teaching birds to speak

ok, I need a favor....


one of my icons games this week

(It happens to be for Saiyuki, but that's not the point - I have had this 4 times in the last three weeks in various games...)

.. anyway, the challenge is a theme, and the theme is Internet Speak. My guidelines read like so:

"We all know what internet speak is, right? lolz, roflmao, i k33l u d3d, etc. You get to create an icon that features this lovely aspect of our current dialogue!"

the problem is -- no, I'm not really conversant with Netspeak. I 'm still working on getting colloquial english. I know the common basic three or four, (I can read 1 of the above samples) and I usually work the rest out from context, like a cipher. I have no idea what's current or what will get me laughed at, and some I still haven't puzzled out at all.

So - teach me Netspeak? Or at least the basic phrases for foreign travel (ex: Is that edible? Where is the bathroom? An insect has gone down your pants, allow me to assist you...")

Or perhaps you could suggest a phrase or two adaptable to anime games if a new language seems beyond me....
