Hee hee. My brother and I made up a little jokelang with pizza toppings to describe methods of murder, made up after watching some gangster movie where they had some kind of code, so that it sounded like they were talking about one thing while they were actually planning a hit. :-) I can't remember any of the details, tho.

Mine's verb-initial (with the exception of a few idioms and focus constructions), but it has some Japanese influences, too. In fact, a fellow conlanger once described its syntax as "backwards Japanese" :-) -- "There's no such thing as 'cool'.
