Vocabababble

bafflegab = jargon = "a peculiar kind of language that is unique to public servants who are trying very hard to justify their existence" used in the title of a recent Canadian government report entitled Emergency Preparedness in Canada: How the Fine Arts of Procrastination and Bafflegab Hobble the People Who Will Be Trying to Save You When Things Get Really Bad. According to one of the study authors, Sen. Colin Kenny, the agnecies' jargon serves merely to mask the fact that nothing has to be done.
