:-) Actually, interestingly enough, it can be derived from any one of the fourteen roots that mean "female prostitute" in a pinch, but "Spranto" is also valid :). Or "Uspuranto". Whichever. It's not like you have to rally knock yourself out to refer to a soon-to-be-dead language... ---- I think the name "Usurpanto" might fit better... Seriously, FWIW, I've had a couple aborted attempts at learning Esperanto on my own, and even with that, I remembered enought to get all the jokes in this line, even and esp the ones written in "Usurpanto".
