Online slang nowadays includes quite a bit of substitution --- e.g., "x" for "k", "3" for "e" --- as well as transposition, omission, and outright misspelling. Around our house we occasionally have a good time with this sort of thing. The other day somebody-who-shall-remain-nameless announced, "I'm going upstairs to haxor my boxor!"

When someone else seemed puzzled I hazarded a translation, "Maybe he's going to change his underwear?"

(more properly: haxor my boxor = hack my box = program my computer)
