Conlang in-jokes.

Some days ago, I built a little joke into Meghean which I thought pretty neat;
the  word _patha_ "disembodied spirit" becomes in the definite accusative
plural _phanto_, which of course has a more than accidental similarity to

(The plural formation by infix is somewhat irregular; you'd expect **_phathano_.
The same pattern is seen in _guthu_ "death", pl _gunt_.)

Anyone else have something similar to share?
