I enjoyed the theme once I understood it.  In pig Latin, I have no idea of the etymology, ixnay, I believe, is understood as "no ix."  It must have been difficult to find words in phrases of equal length with an ix that can be eliminated and still make some kind of sense. I liked DONQUOTE which would be Don Quixote if the ix were not excised.
