I think this works only because you know the correct word in the first place.
    I think in future we will talk like that. As we know teenagers got that power to change language. No matter what languages it is. I can heard Russian and Lithuanian languages is changed over the past years. Sometimes I confused when some youngsters are talking about. No offence but special rep kids.

    Music begins where words leave off. Music expresses the inexpressible.

    Regarding the picture above, the idea of using "dance" to communicate with people was first mooted, I believe, by Kurt Vonnegut in Breakfast of Champions :

    “As for the story itself, it was entitled "The Dancing Fool." Like so many Trout stories, it was about a tragic failure to communicate. Here was the plot: A flying saucer creature named Zog arrived on Earth to explain how wars could be prevented and how cancer could be cured. He brought the information from Margo, a planet where the natives conversed by means of farts and tap dancing. Zog landed at night in Connecticut. He had no sooner touched down than he saw a house on fire. He rushed into the house, farting and tap dancing, warning the people about the terrible danger they were in. The head of the house brained Zog with a golfclub.”

    And here's another quote from Kurt which I think you might enjoy:

    “Kilgore Trout once wrote a short story which was a dialogue between two pieces of yeast. They were discussing the possible purposes of life as they ate sugar and suffocated in their own excrement. Because of their limited intelligence, they never came close to guessing that they were making champagne.”
    ― Kurt Vonnegut, Breakfast of Champions
