All together now. . .inGobbledygookA Set of Two Or More Hollow, MetalInstruments, Typically Cup-shapedor Spherical, with Internal Clappers,Pellets, etc, That When Suspendedfrom Their Vertex and Shaken WillRender a Clinking or TinklingSound.Introduction. . .What if your teacher handed back an assignment and said,“I have affixed the most highly desired alphabet character to yourscholarly endeavor as an expression of its meritorious attributes”?Well, for one thing, your teacher would be speaking gobbledygook!Yes, it’s a real word with real definitions. Here’s one version:gobbledygook gä-bəl-dē-guk -noun Language characterized by high-sounding, pretentious wordingthat is hard to understand; double talk; double speak; balderdash; gibberish; mumbojumbo; baloney.The term was coined in 1944 during World War II by Texas lawyer Maury Maverick while he wasworking for the Smaller War Plants Corporation. Fed up with bureaucratic double talk such as combatemplacement excavator instead of shovel, Mr. Maverick dashed off a memo banning “gobbledygooklanguage.” His made-up word purposely imitated the sound of a turkey call.Rather than disappearing as Mr. Maverick commanded, gobbledygook has become quitecommonplace. Bureaucrats still love it. Consider, for example, a hospital bill that lists disposablemucus recovery system as a chargeable item, or this announcement—Refuse and rubbish shall not becollected from the site or receptacles thereon before the hour of 8:00 A.M. or after the hour of 6:00 P.M.any day—issued by a town in Australia. Translation? Patients must pay for a box of tissue and thetown will pick up garbage between 8:00 A.M. and 6:00 P.M.It’s enough to drive your mental activity beyond the margins of reason as you leave home wearinggently-used attire and ride in your parents’ preowned vehicle to your assigned institution of instructionwhere you will inhabit the student station designated specifically for your occupancy!Or, you can have bunches of fun with the whole idea! Let’s start with the gobbledygook Christmassong title printed in the upper right-hand corner above the reindeer.Aren’t you glad you get to sing the simple phrase Jingle Bells instead?Here’s your chance to become proficient in spotting, investigating, and decoding this type of verbalpollution. Beginning on the next page, you will find titles of familiar Christmas songs written ingobbledygook. Study the convoluted verbiage and then write the actual title in the blank provided.By the way, you made an A on the assignment. Your teacher said so!Copyright 2010 Margaret Whisnant1
