the Conejo dialect

The members of the Conejo Committee have developed a strange set of vocal tics and slang that have come to be referred to as the “Conejo dialect.” It seems to borrow randomly from Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, and other dialects of English. This is a half-serious attempt to document the slang my friends and I use.
