Mr. Kidswatter, the principal, calls Eric into his office, though there are 3 Erics. So Mrs. Jewls sends each Eric in one by one. He indirectly accuses each boy of writing an insulting comment about him at a barber shop. It says: "Mr. Kidswatter is a mugworm griblick."
So, what is mugworm griblick? I'm trying to translate it into Chinese.
I'm guessing it's some nonsense phrase made up for the occasion.
wasn't that the name of this guy's character in LOTR
It is a nonsense phrase, meant to be interpreted as a insult, used by Louis Sachar, the author of "The Sideways Stories From Wayside School" series of books, which is where this comes from. Once again, no source or context given by the OP. [rolls eyes]
I think it means something inaproprite
