The Walrus at work Lyr Add: Gin Gan Goolie - Scout song (16) RE: Lyr Add: Gin Gan Goolie - Scout song 22 Nov 01


"...What in the world is the sexual connotation with "goolie", for goodness sake? Inquiring minds want to know!..."

The Hindi(?) word for "Ball" is "Gola", during the Raj, British soldiers anglicised this to "gooly" (plural "goolies"), this became asscociated goolies = balls = testicles.

Damned silly isn't it?


By the bye: If the Scout movement have a problem with "Gin Gan Gooly" - What do they make of "Scouting for Boys"?
