Do you know the meaning of the word wabbajack? No? Well, that’s probably because you’ve never heard it used in a sentence and it can’t be found anywhere in the dictionary. Why? ‘Cause it’s completely made up! This word is the brain child of Ryan Potter from Supah Ninjas. It’s one of the catchphrases he uses on set! But what on earth does it mean??
Could it be a stinky slice of pepperJACK cheese?!
Or maybe it’s a wild JACKalope with wobbly antlers?
Nope, it’s neither of these things. Ryan Potter explained, “This past season… we came up with this game… You go up to somebody, and you say some random word like, “wabbajack,” and you tickle the top of their head and then they’re it.”
So next time you’re playing a game of tag, use this hilarious phrase made up by the head of the Supah Ninjas crew. And if anyone asks you for its definition, just follow Ryan’s example, “[Wabbajack] means nothing, it’s utter gibberish.” But hey, it’s still fun to say!
