Twaddle: Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum’s Favorite Pastime

Twaddle: 

Foolish speech, trivial writing, and general nonsense.

 

But what is true and what is nonsense and who’s to judge between the two?

Sometimes the apparent nonsense is in fact the wisest speech,

Sometimes the greatest logic is in fact the foolish thing,

And who can say what’s what?

 

 “Contrariwise,’ continued Tweedledee, ‘if it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn’t, it ain’t. That’s logic.” (Lewis Carroll)

 

Sound logic and twaddle, all rolled up into one.
