Oh shucks, I thought "AFAIK" was an acronym we teenagers made popular on our cell phones ! Tho now of course it's become a familiar abbreviation (with an honorable history on this very list), along the lines of TBC ("to be continued"), FWIT ("for what it's worth") and various others that don't come to mind at this moment.
However, as far as "pig latin" is concerned, I beg to inform you that it's the other way around: So called "pig latin" is based on the ancient language of "Ixnay," translated from the pre-Columbian relics looted by Vasco deGama.
