    blathering blatherskite

    Catchphrase του Gizmoduck που είναι ήρωας της Ντίσνεϊ:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fenton_Crackshell
    He first appeared on DuckTales (to be more exact, the TV movie Super DuckTales, which was later split up into a five-part episode) as a bean counter (literally), but he quit that job to work for Scrooge McDuck as his accountant. Although he is not stupid, Fenton's ambitious ideas and hasty decision-making create serious problems for his boss (from the DuckTales: The Quest for Gold manual, "Fenton can count faster than the speed of sound, but his judgment is not always very sound"). He is doggedly determined to make amends each time by any means necessary which can create even more complications until he ultimately succeeds, although this requires a large amount of patience with him.
    Presumably lacking an education in business and accounting, he tends to take things literally. For example, when Scrooge referred to his large cache of funds as "liquid assets", Fenton has the entire money bin emptied into a nearby lake. Eventually while Fenton and Scrooge try to get the money out, the Beagle Boys quickly wash it downstream near the Beagles' hideout. Fortunately, he then suggested that his employer "freeze his assets" which inspires McDuck to have the lake frozen solid, then transport the ice to a secure area and recover the money.
    Later on, Fenton finds a robot suit called GizmoDuck made by Gyro Gearloose. The code word to activate it is "Blatherskite", a word which Gyro assumes no normal person would use. (Unbeknownst to him, one of Fenton's most frequently used sayings was "blathering blatherskite".) As fate would have it, Fenton wanders too close to the suit and utters his favorite expression, thus gaining a secret identity as a superhero. From then on, Fenton always uses "blathering blatherskite" to become Gizmoduck, despite only needing the second word — it's possible that he doesn't realize he doesn't have to say the entire phrase.

    Θα ήθελα, βέβαια, να μάθω πώς έχει αποδοθεί αυτός ο όρος. Αλλιώς, λίγο brainstorming, μπας και βρεθεί κάτι εντυπωσιακό.

    Και, εκτός από τα κολοκύθια στο πάτερο, δείτε τι μπορείτε να κάνετε και με τα κουραφέξαλα (σκέτα, χωρίς σάλτσες, καλό για επιφώνημα).
