So, could you read it? This is what it said:

Today I'm writing my post in Pig Latin. I'm using a cool Website that I found on the Wikipedia entry for "Pig Latin".

Although I dabbled in speaking Pig Latin when I was a kid, I've never before written in it. The same rules apply:
  • For words that begin with consonant sounds, move the initial consonant or consonant cluster to the end of the word and add "ay."
  • For words that begin with vowel sounds (including silent consonants), simply add the syllable "ay" to the end of the word. In some dialects, to aid in pronunciation, an "h," "w" or "d" is added to the suffix.
For people who have too much free time, Wikipedia also has a link to a page where you can Google in Pig Latin!
