T-Rex: I can't stop thinking about coming up with my own secret language!
T-Rex: Normally when you invent a language, everyone's all "cool language, but you'll need to get millions of people speaking it before I care". But cryptolects avoid that entirely!! T-Rex: That objection is null and void when the whole PURPOSE is to make it exclusive. It turns your greatest weakness into a strength!
Utahraptor: Why not just learn an existing language that's super unpopular where you are? Same effect, way less work!
Utahraptor: PLUS, if we choose an endangered language, we're participating in the intrinsic good of preserving languages, AND it'd expose us to ideas and cultures outside our own. It'd still be inscrutable to 99.9% of the normie English speakers we'll ever meet! T-Rex: YOU'RE ON!!
Narrator: LATER: Off panel: <We mostly use this language to dunk on people around us without them knowing.> T-Rex: <Hah hah hah! Yes!> T-Rex: <THEY SHOULD SELL LANGUAGE COURSES BASED ON THIS PERK ALONE>
What are the haps my friends
