But on channel 6 you would modify that, announce it several times with a pause between the second and third statement emphasizing specific words and also insert your "CB handle" many times during the message something like this:

Yo, dis is da Grey Ghost and I be go-in down to da doughnut shop dis mo-nin, I say dis is da Grey Ghost, and I be go-in down, I say go-in down to da doughnut shop dis mo-nin. Dis is da Grey Ghost, da Grey Ghost, da Greeeeeeey Ghost, and I be go-in down, I say go-in down, go-in doooown, to dat doughnut shop dis mooooo-nin, and I be back quiet."

As you can see, this language is very inefficient, taking several times longer to get the message across and in most cases the contents of the message is actually less important than the act of sending a message. Practicing this language also has the effect of lowering ones IQ, which may be simply a temporary effect, but in many cases it actually causes a permanent reduction in the senders IQ that cannot be recovered.

I've seen some cases where prior to sending a message over channel 6 the sender converses in a proper "Kings English" then switches to this other language during the sending of a CB message and then returns to proper Kings English when conversing in person. Its a fascinating phenomenon to watch.
Don't you mean the new language called Ebonics?

Similar, but less coherent.

Ebonics is still alive and well in the media on nearly every cable channel. 25-30 years ago A woman who advocated Ebonics conned the State of Georgia for a large contract, then skipped out with the money right before the majority was going to run her out of town on a rail. Not sure if they ever found her. I call Ebonics and the people who use it, "Evolution In Regression"

There is also the occasional reference to "Mud ducks", "World-wide moeebeeeell","Readin da mail", "Walkin and stompin" and being "Bakkkwiettt"

We have a CBer in our area Rossland BC Canada who calls himself Mud Duck, but I doubt very little that this fellow has anything that transmits over 4 watts.

Normally the superbowlers fortunately stick to 6, but today it sounds like some of them leaked to 19.

Well they have multiplied x2 as the other day they were in ch 12. In full force.....But you are correct generally they stick to ch6 and just splatter a couple of channels in either direction.

Brings back memories of "Wire Twister" in TN. He later got his ham ticket and moved there. I knew him personally, he helped me get my start in CB, and I was a fellow ham with him later. Great guy. But man, did he know how to run a CB station...

It's a nightmare that as CB dies, or here in CA it is dead, all that remains is CH 6. Oh man!

In LA check ch 17 in the evenings or 38LSB, there is a lot of activity in English there. Otherwise tune to channel 5 or 7 or a few others for Spanish. Ch 6 has a form of English but it can be hard to decode sometimes.

Wonder if he's the same "Mud Duck" that was always trying to hog up 19 in San Diego, years ago (late 80s/early 90s)?

I doubt that, but I can ask him. He is a Canadian and I am not aware of him living in the US. This Mud Duck up here is 37 years old and is a back country 4X4 junkie.

There is good reason CB is referred to as the Children's Band. Although I maintained a top-of-the-line and modified Galaxy rig in my truck, I relied on my scanner and 2m/440 for real news and intelligent conversation. Just try sitting in one of those West Memphis truckstops and asking a simple question like 'are the scales open on the west bound side?' Ridiculous.
