Sentence: Little Johnny Madden was a slow learner. He didn’t speak in full sentences til long after his play pals but once he started there was no stopping him. He seemed to revel in the sound of his own voice. His mother’s favorite word was ”Hush!”. Little did anybody realize that he could parlay this annoying trait into a career adding ”color” to the commentary of football sportscasters. He would travel from city to city to do his job. Every city he visited would become the new city of Babblon.

Etymology: babble (talk rapidly and continuously in a foolish, excited, or incomprehensible way) + on - A play on Babylon
