Hi everyone, yesterday I was riding my bicycle along the road when a couple of jerks zipped past me and shouted "BOO!" to scare me. I was furious. I shouted "Idiots!" after them at the top of my lungs. After I had calmed down, I thought of what captain Haddock would have done. I can just imagine him shouting after them: "Bandicoots! Filibusters! Iconoclasts! Bashi-Bazouks! Troglodytes! Gangsters! Coelocanths! Marauding Madmen! Blistering barnacles! just wait till I catch you, you pirates!" what do you think? what else can you think that captain Haddock would have shouted after a couple of jerks (or done to them, could he have caught them.)

Sometimes, my brother used some of Captain Haddock's 'beautiful' language to taunt bullies at school. For once, I heard him say Blistering Baboons to a bully and he got it from the bully. Captain Haddock exclaimations at shock were used somemore. A friend of him told me about his most famous exclaimation of them all, Blistering Balls!, when he was stunned by a school, who used a UFO spacecraft-shaped soccerbot to win a competition. He got a laugh from all the members from his team! Ha!

I don't remember Captain Haddock ever using that particular phrase. Maybe there's a long-lost Tintin book called Tintin and the Hazards of Nude Sunbathing which Hergé withdrew from circulation, but it seems unlikely.
