  • 12 hocus-pocus

    Любой набор слов (произнесённых или написанных) или любое действие, направленное на обман, надувательство. Это выражение появилось лишь в XVII в. и является первыми словами из «тайного» заклинания колдуна или фокусника, которое обеспечивает успех колдовства или фокуса. Полная фраза — Hocus pocus, toutous talantos, vade eclerita jubes — выдуманная молитва на якобы латинском языке, основанная на первых словах католической литургии 'Hoc est corpus' («Это моё тело»).

    There's a lot of hocus-pocus about dieting. I just eat what I want. — Написано очень много вранья о диетах. Я ем только то, что хочу.

    Это выражение сейчас обозначает также чушь, пустяки. Слово hokum, сокращённая форма hocus-pocus, может обозначать книгу, фильм или банальную телевизионную программу, не требующую серьёзного внимания или анализа.

    John fell asleep in front of some hokum on the telly. — Джон заснул под какую-то чушь по телевизору.
