Out of the many theories for an explanation of this phenomenon, the most likely appears to be that a large pack of buzzards flew over the area after having eaten a couple of freshly dead horses, and when one of them spontaneously disgorged itself, all the others (as apparently is customary amongst buzzards) followed suit.[2][3]



During the song, Poppins says, “You know, you can say it backwards, which is ‘dociousaliexpilisticfragicalirupes’, but that’s going a bit too far, don’t you think?”

When the word is spelled backwards it actually becomes “suoicodilaipxecitsiligarfilacrepus”, which is different.[6] However, her claim was not about spelling it backwards, but saying it backwards; if one breaks the word into several sections or prosodic feet (“super-cali-fragi-listic-expi-ali-docious”) and recites them in reverse sequence, and also partially reverses the spelling of “super” to “rupes”, one does come close to what Poppins said in the film.

In the stage musical, the word’s proper reversal is used. Rapper Ghostface Killah said “dociousaliexpilisticfragicalisuper” in his song “Buck 50”.
