Tintin comics: what is Captain Haddock saying (French)?
I mean, in the original French, he keeps saying "mille sabords!", but I can't find "sabord" in my dictionary.

Literally: Thousand portholes!
In the English Tin-tin this repeated phrase of Haddock's was translated as 'blistering barnacles'.
"mille millions de mille sabords"
Which in the English Tin-tin it was translated to "billions of blistering blue barnacles."

Either he is saying to SCUTTLE the ship...or he is saying "I`m captain Haddock and have slight HEADACHE"...Pick the first suggestion-it is from French dictionary..."Mille Sabords!"=Thousand Scuttles!...(mild cuss)...Source(s): From French dictionary; Mille= 1000 Sabords = Scuttles..Now you can turn this into anything you want "figuratively" as answer below me, even into "billions of McDonalds Big Macs served"..
