    Default What does gibberish English sound like?

    I realize I probably won't get any good examples of gibberish english, thanks to this being an english language forum, and thanks to Britain and the U.S. being powerful for so long, but it's worth a shot. I'm wondering what the english equivalents are to stuff like "Haagen Das" (the ice cream), or the Monty Python "world's funniest joke", which in german is apparently gibberish.

    See: Japan, pop culture of.

    From a distance, I've found more nonsensical phrases than nonsensical words. Expatriates living over there, however, likely can relate dozens of the latter.

    Where is Brian?
    Brian is in de kitchen.
    Where is Jenny, the sister of the Brian?
    She is in the bathththththrrrroom.

    Everyone who learns English at school in France learns that.

    Also: I got just one question, and you gotta answer me to my fucking question man! (parody of typical American movie script lines - see Gad Elmaleh, French stand-up comedian's video 'L'Autre C'est Moi', where he goes on at length, parodying English/American culture and language in cod-English)
