    Unhappy Yageddabadda geddaahh!

    "Yageddabadda geddaahh!"

    This is what an old woman said in a book I'm reading.

    Is this really English?
    Or is this some kind of English spoken in London?

    Thank you SO much!

    Please give reference/quote where it has been used. It is certainly impossible to comment without that.

    "You had better get out!"

    An exaggeration of the consonants to make the sentence more comic.
