Where did I see this funny Esperanto-like language?

Does anyone remember a site featuring a hilarious made up language that mashed up various European languages? (Not Esperanto!) The texts were, I believe, poking fun at the EU.

As I said, this was not Esperanto, though it was very similar in the way you could understand it if you knew most of the languages used. I don't think it bothered with its own grammar - it would be something like "If you lisez this Absatz you will scoprire that it's all a tas of Scheiße."

I read this in 2001 or 2002 and am finding it kinda hard to google for, if it even still exists. Thanks!

Europanto is actually more useful than one would assume…
