It's absolute nonsense. Jabberwocky of the most essential kind.

At the risk of ruining the joke (well, actually, for me it didn't, it just made it funnier):

It's the phrase: "See, Billy, See 'er go? Forty buses in a row! Them are not, them are trucks! See what is in them? Cows? And ducks!"

But then you spell it kind of sideways using a phoneme-construction that subsitutes alternate letters that make the same sounds, and it kinda looks like Latin, except you're pretty sure there isn't a latin word like "trux" or "cowz", and "siwatisinem"?. What the hell language is that? Esperanto? Igpay atinlay? And suddenly your thinking outside the box of your experience.

A lot of power in type and words. Maybe that's why I'm so fond of them, and why I have a copies of Fairbanks and Bringhurst on my special shelf.

PS: See the posting I made after this one, titled "It's All Greeking", that contains maybe a more sane commentary. B-)
