    I don’t like posting anything because it makes no sense to me at all.

    I see “Photos … blah, blah, blah … to the stain, because the clown will charge me if he sees it, ha ha”.

    But sometimes a native speaker will add a letter or two and some punctuation, and suddenly it makes sense.

    In my opinion, what he/she tried to say was:

    "Photos, don't you show them to "el churri" (I don't know if that's a name, or a way of calling someone you both know), because he'll make fun of me if he sees them haha"

    Hope this makes sense!!

    El churri is boyfriend in Spain, but how did you make sense of "ustefedefet nofo sefe lafas enfeselefe"? I was about to decide it was a different language. Or have I been had by a form of jerigonza that uses f in place of p.

    Well, it's kind of hard to explain... There was a game that we used to play as kids, I don't know if that's what this person was doing... It was a "made-up" language, I think it was from a TV show, and what they did was add one syllable after each syllable from the word, using the same vocal that the syllable had, but a different consonant.... I don't know if I was able to explain that very well haha! Anyway, I remembered that, and I tried to remove the "extra" syllables and that's what I got!
    It still has many mistakes, even without those extra syllables, but when you're used to hearing them and seeing what they write, nothing surprises you!

    As soon as I typed "another language" it began to dawn on me that I had been thoroughly fooled. "Ud. no las enseñe" tal vez? And it's not even April 1. How do you say AARGH!!! in Spanish?

    Hay uns forma de “jerigonza” en inglés, es “Pig Latin”. Mueves la letra inicial de la palabra (si no es un vocal) a la posición final y añades “ay” – el son de “ei” en español. Pig Latin en Pig Latin es Igpay Atinlay.
