One's late lamented brother, when a tiny brat (before one's own time) apparently attempted to say "screwdriver" (not many toys in Teetering Towers) and it came out something like "googuvvy".

So forever after in the family, screwdrivers were googuvvys ...... one sometimes forgot when fixing a motorcycle with one's mate ...

"Oy Dan, pass me the big googuvvy will yer....."
