Ubbi-Dubbi - Secret language spoken by
a group of pre-teens youngsters called "Zoomers" who hosted the PBS children's
program ZOOM/PBS/1972-77/1999+ produced by WGBH-TV in Boston.
Amidst the songs,
dances, jokes, stories and tips sent in by the young viewers, these ZOOMERS
spoke a language similar to Pig Latin.
The following is an example of the language's structure:
T-ub-o sp-ub-eak ub-it, Ub-add-"UB" b-ub-ef-ub-ore Ub-each v-ub-ow-ub-el s-ub-ound
ub-in ub-ev-ub-er-ub-y w-ub-ord. G-ub-ood l-ub-uck!
Note: Always put the accent on the "ub" each time you say it.
