People-talk

Last night at Seth's Halloween party while I was dressed terribly as "Demi Moore from Ghost" some of Seth's neighbors were on his porch drinking and talking to us.

Girl: You're bent, right?
Me: Excuse me? No.
Girl: Drunk? You're not drunk?
Me: Oh, well. A little, yeah. I thought you were using it in the English, err the UK, sense of the term.
Girl: We don't speak English. We speak Ebonics.
Me: No, sorry, what I meant was...
Girl: We speak Niggalish.
