It's basically just a funny way of saying things. It's quite easy however. All you have to do is take the first letter of each word(or in cases of 'there', 'this', etc. just take the th), put it on the end, and then add ay. Unless it starts with a vowel, in which case you just add ay. So my comment would go like this: Itsay asicallybay ustjay ay unnyfay ayway ofay ayingsay ingsthay. Itsay itequay easyay oweverhay., and so on. It really looks hilarious. So in the case they're looking for, it's igpay atinlay. I hope that helps!

My SIL was one of ten children, and the older siblings learned to speak Pig Latin so the younger ones couldn't overhear their conversations and tattle. They have become so proficient at it, that it really sounds like a foreign language when they speak it.

Brit here, I have never come across Pig Latin before. Not sure if it's an American thing that didn't make it across the pond or if it's just something that's escaped me but I would never have got that. Edit, reading some of the other comments apparently we do have it in Britain, or parts of it, but it has just escaped me.

netherlands here. I have never come across it in real life, not a thing here. But heard of it many many times, in movies I guess. Some things you hear about, even if it is not a thing in your country. (like hersheybar... first thing that comes to mind as an example, and poptarts, allways hear about them, no clue what they are besides something edible. But even if something isnt a thing in your country, you often hear about things from other countries, mainly the usa)

Its a very poor question since there is no "real" piglatin. Should be removed since it requires exact spelling and there is no official Piglatin language.

My dad used to do this years ago and could do it really fast. He didn't call it Pig Latin, though, but I can't remember what he called it. The UK must have a different name for it.

My siblings and I spoke "openglopish" which is a similar sort of thing. (add "op" before every vowel). There probably are several "languages" of the kind.

I'm a 45 year-old bloke and have never read/watched any books/films of the series. But do a few more quizzes about popular culture on jetpunk, you're bound to run into those names more often and will get the hang of it eventually.

I'm a 45 year old guy who has never read or watched any of the Twilight stuff, but that crap was literally everywhere for a few years. It was borderline impossible to miss for a while there, and Jetpunk quizzes manage to keep bringing it up often enough to never be able to unlearn it.

Is being aware of pop culture such a bad thing?

Of course it isn't a bad thing. It would,however, be nice to see a bit more of the classics and by that I mean anything before say 1999. I could be wrong (again), but I feel that it is important to be aware of issues and cultures of the past as well as the present. I don't guess kids even still read things like "Black Beauty" or Nancy Drew and most young adults have no idea who William Faulkner or Tennessee Williams were. Is there work any less important than Stephanie Meyers or J. K. Rowling's? Read a few classics and answer that question for yourself.

It is like 50 shades of grey. Eventhough you ve never read a book in your life, and only have the tv on one day in a month, people talk about it so much, you cant escape it, Especially things that have a bit of controversy. I have heard about twilight mainly because people diss kristen stewart ( also only reason I know her) and because people are offende by vampires being sparkly and throw huge fits about it haha

Same. I always thought it was just adding "a" to the end. It gives you the same sound as "ay." "ay" just seems superfluous.

Adding 'ay' to make the long A sound is far more consistent with English pronunciation conventions. How many real words that end in 'a' actually make the long A sound? Banana, bra, Canada, bazooka, eczyma, kerygma... they all say 'uh.' Compare day, bay, play, way, satay, essay.
