Googling = Gongoozling

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!
Gongoozler Gongoozler
(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!!
