Re: “Playing filk and molesting Shakespeare at the ReConStruction sci-fi convention

How's this for "inscrutable" and "hopelessly esoteric":

"So I come up to the dish with the sacks packed just hoping to avoid a twin killing. Their guy is throwing real high-octane gas so I'm hoping to get a blooper, a dork, a duck snort, anything but a "K". A bomb is out of the question. I'm looking for heat and he comes at me with the deuce. I'm fooled, but somehow manage to get my lumber on it and rip a pea to right. I'm thinking I just got me a base knock with a couple of ribbies, but their right fielder has a cannon and he guns me down at first. Major bummer." (from Baseball Slang: The Game has a Language All to Its Own)

Can we just stipulate that ANY sport or hobby has its own slang that's not going to make sense to those who have no interest in it, and that sf fans are no weirder than the Redskins' Hogettes?
