There is a lot of this around today; gobbledygook. It seems all these years I’ve been pronouncing it incorrectly as goggledy goop, two words with a “p” on the end instead of one word with a “k” at the end. Both mean the same thing; wordy and generally unintelligible jargon. According to cultures connection dot com The word was invented by Maury Maverick, a United States politician and was first used in 1944 when he gave a speech to qualify a text riddled with official jargon and particularly complicated sentence structures. Go figure, a politician invented gobbledygook. You can also use bafflegab, double-talk, gibberish, song and dance or rigmarole in place or instead of gobbledygook.
