Today is National Gibberish Day. I know, you didn’t even buy a card or take the day off or anything. Coming on the heels of its more famous sibling — International Talk Like a Pirate Day — National Gibberish Day has no discernible significance or history. It is, fittingly, little more than calendar gibberish.
Let’s make a thing out of it.
Today we are counting down some of the best popular culture characters who spoke gibberish. Let’s get some ground rules out of the way first.
