Googling = Gongoozling

Googling = Gongoozling

posted Friday, 23 May 2008


I used the word GONGOOZLER as the title of one of my stories (published in the nineties). Then it was a very obscure word that only those with British esoteric canal-speak knew about. It refers to loafers who hang about canal locks watching others strain and struggle with the canal-locks.
But now, I am amazed to say, there is a wikipedia entry! (after googling it)

I think to gongoozle is a better word than to google! It seems more appropriate.
You heard it here first. I expect you all now to use this new word gongoozling for the process of googling!!
