Levantine/Gulf Arabic: to come out with things like....

How would you say: "He comes out with stupid comments like "All British people drink tea" and silly generalizations like that."

I know that you could probably just say:
بصير يحكي هبل مثل كل البريطان بشربوا شاي

But I was wondering if there was more of a colloquial way of saying 'come out with....like'. ("You should hear the things he comes out with")

Can you say something with 'بطلع ب' ?

    Perhaps something like بزتّلك تعليقات (bizittillak)? I definitely think something with -lak is the answer as far as expressing this kind of disdain for the speaker is concerned.

    Yes, absolutely! I would say it with analeeh's -lak.

    هدا بطلعلك بتعاليق غبيّة متل "كل البريطان بشربوا شاي" وتعميمات بايخة من هالزي

    I wouldn't use بزتّلك.
