In many series, technobabble (phrases invented by writers to describe confusing events in science fiction, fantasy, and other series) is delivered fairly well.
Then there's Betterman's technobabble.
"Electromagnetic... and ultrasonic pulses work in different mediums... but they both cause vibrations."
That's hilarious. After I first found this clip, I told my sister that, if I ever decided to buy and watch Betterman, I'd pretty much just laugh the whole time. (Well, there are some things I wouldn't laugh at, but that's because Betterman also features some truly brutal violence that it's hard to believe characters could come back from [even though those characters do, of course]. Such as decapitations.)
