Or Googies with a soft G like... um Goujons? I can't actually think of a word that has a soft G in the middle like that. OK like in Sage. Which one is it? Seems obvious to me that it's pronounced "Googies" but my wife keeps saying "Googies". Is she talking gibberish or what?
UPDATE: Having spoken to Googy himself, it's Googies with two hard Gs like Google.
This is part of my site The FG that I built in a fury of excitement when we first came to Folkestone in approximately 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while before that but I am technically one of those DFLs you get now. The site was a lot more dynamic with a calendar of events and voting for favourite places and stuff, and I know it was a useful reference for others who were thinking of moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only to Hythe) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. I am not Gerald BTW, this comes from a fake paper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
