argot - it is the j'ar'gon that we 'got' here that no other person understands

argot ~ ar + got (goat); when our goat says "meh...mheh...meh..." we cannot understand its lingo - only other goats can understand it. So, argot is a lingo only small group of people (here goats) can understand.

ar+got(goat).. if a few GOATs say 'arrr arrr' instad of the usual 'mheh mheh'. it will be a slang (argot) in their world..;)

goat:mehehehehe me:arr.. goat:mehehhe me:arr tu dusre goatsehi baat kar me: :P
