Chances are you came across a weeaboo and you have no idea what he/she said, and you probably have no interest either. Weeaboo jargon is a rather loathsome enigma to the average person. One can suggest it's akin to [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanglish Spanglish], being both a mixture of two languages and equally annoying but instead of blending Spanish and English, you have a blend of horribly mispronounced Moonspeak combined with English. So you can pretty much expect to hear the word "baka" or "uguu~" thrown around liberally.
The tongue that is spoken by weeaboos consist of many words in Japanese that have changed definitions, or are misinterpreted given that a majority of them arrogantly believe they can speak fluent Japanese just from watching anime subs.

3DPD - Short for "3D Pig Disgusting", a derogatory term otaku use to lash out at people with more than two dimensions, especially towards real life women. Most anime obsessed otaku cannot stomach the sight of 3D women, even for a couple of seconds, and find the sight of them nude as an atrocious and nauseous sight.

An example would be their little sister in the event that the two get involved in some sort incest situation just like in their favorite anime.
