Would "what a blah blah blah" be understandable?

Flavia, you are more likely to see it without "a":
What a lot of bla-bla-bla

What a load of BS. (BS = bullsh*t)
What a load of crap.

What a load of baloney.
What a load of blarney.

Eu já vi o uso do termo "yada yada yada" como blá blá blá.

Exemplos:
  • You know, they don't think you're good enough, yada yada yada.
  • They need to catch the ball and throw strikes and hold on runners and yada, yada, yada.
  • I'm sure he's a nice guy, loves his mother, yada yada yada.
Gibberish


I'm so tired that i'm just talking gibberish at this point.

Em relação ao uso de "yada yada yada" para referir-se à "blá blá blá" há uma curiosidade interessante (cultura geral nunca é demais):

Nas Escrituras, quando alguma referência era feita ao ato sexual, a palavra usada no hebraico era yada, que carrega todos estes significados:

yada: conhecer, perceber, notar, observar, descobrir, experimentar, se preocupar com, entender, respeitar, se deixar descobrir, se familiarizar com, se dar conta de

Fica a pergunta aos leitores do fórum: será que tem alguma coisa a ver ou é mera "coincidência"?
Hello all, I am new to this site and excuse my use of only English, as I am in the very beginning stages of learning Portuguese. I know the reply is a little late, but I'm hoping I can provide a bit of insight.

"Blah blah blah" is probably going to be the best choice to convey gibberish or when referring to some unimportant conversation or details. For example, you could say the teacher in Ferris Beuller was just saying "blah blah blah" all day or you could say that you talked to your mom this morning and she went on and on about 'blah blah blah.'

If you wanted to say that something someone said is not true, you could say that what they said was "BS," which is the polite way to say "bullshit" or in more formal company you may want to use something a little less vulgar, like "that was nonsense."

The use of "yada yada yada" is a bit more specific and the phrase is actually from an episode of the 90s sitcom Seinfeld. Yada yada yada is usually used to leave out details you wish not to disclose. For example, you could say, "I went on a date with John last night and he seemed really charming in the beginning, but later that night we went back to his apartment and 'yada yada yada,' I'm never going to see him again." There, 'yada yada yada' was used to leave out more personal details, probably relating to sex.

Hope that helped!
