When I posted about Google search referrers on here last week, I missed out a string that had then come up once: “Oggy, oggy, oggy, oi, oi, oi” (I used it as a post title a while back).
I was watching the Baftas on Sunday when Catherine Zeta-Jones received an award for Best Supporting Actress. As she gleefully chanted “Oggy oggy oggy, oi oi oi” to the bemused audience, I thought (blogger’s ego) “Hm, wonder if I get any search hits off that?”
I’d had two by 9am yesterday morning. Then The Sun put it on their front page, and since then I’ve had another three and counting.
Incidentally, if that’s why you’re here, the best I can offer is that “oi” is possibly a corruption of “oik”, meaning a street urchin or yob (which is itself, of course, just backslang for “boy”). It’s a nonsense verse used by everyone from boy scouts to football hooligans, including, presumably the Swansea massive. If you want more, search me (or rather, don’t).
