ORIGIN: alteration of earlier bletherskate, from blether + skate (fish)
1: a blustering, talkative and often incompetent person
2: nonsense, blather
3: ruddy duck
SENTENCE: The worst kind of blatherskite is the one that follows you around all the time.
WHY IT’S INTERESTING: Fortunately, I don’t live around any blatherskites, but if I did, they’d probably drive me crazy.
