Bibble is a nonsense word.
I like to say bibble over and over again outside of any context, like this: bibble, bibble, bibble.
This handy chart is good for thinking about what bibble means, but you probably won't get it. Think of this as an incantation that invokes the four fundamental elements of thought and language: bibble, fire, love, and death:Bibble is the love of death on fire.
I told you it was a nonsense word. Now do you "understand"?
Apparently my "understanding" of the word "bibble" is terribly flawed:
From: life the universe and everything <"god"@what.ever.com> From "god"@what.ever.com Fri May 31 06:44:54 1996 Date: Fri, 31 May 1996 23:45:12 +1000 To: email@example.com Subject: Incrorrectnes of bibble You are wrong. That's all there is to it. Bibble is from the British TV series "BlackAdder" So shut up.
Humility escapes me. I will stand by my own perceptions of what "bibble" is, relative points of view and all that rot. But I am curious if anyone can tell me what Black Adder episode or episodes make use of "bibble". This is the first I've heard of this rogue variant.
Update: The source revealed:
http://blackadder.eng.monash.edu.au/~pat/scripts/blackadder_series.2 wherein the Blackadder bibble is revealed: And in Genoa, 'tis now the fashion to pin a live frog to the shoulder-braid, stand on a bucket, and go 'Bibble' at passers-by.
