Prepare the patlpoats

Simeon and Abbi have been acting out scenes from books and movies lately. One of my favorites is a scene between Octavius (Simeon) and Jed (Abbi). Simeon is supposed to yell "prepare the catapults" but what normally comes out is "prepare the patlpoats." Other than Simeon using "th" for his "f's" he normally does a good job on his pronunciation, which is probably why I think it is so funny to hear him say patlpoats. I asked him to repeat what he had just said so I could get it on camera. Not the best but if you listen carefully, you can hear his pronunciation of catapults, and you will also notice that the camera shakes due to an attack on me by "Jed."
