I think the following sentence from my conlang is quite cute :-)

     /tOnOT pregeTdris OroU tOnOT arOl ix/

     Tonot* preget*drys oriu tonot* !rol ykk
     where (t* == pi-shape) and (! == lambda-shape)

     Constructing languages always causes happiness.

     You construct language always-is you are happy.

     tonot*      = you-animate-singular-present-hypothetical
     preget*drys = (preg) speak + (et*) system + (drys) construct
     oriu        = (iu) is + (-r-) persistent form
     tonot*      =
     !rol        = (!roo) happy + (-l) byverbial form
     ykk         = is

     iu  = 'is' between nouns; also used to indicate cause/effect
     ykk = 'is' between noun and adjective.
