I was watching an episode of “Task master” on Dave, and Gregg pointed out during the VT of a task one of the contestants had said Awooga.
He mocked them and said “thats a catchphrase from a 90s TV show”
Then they attributed the noise/word to ITV game show Gladiators.
So I’m after some balderdash & piffle style provable etymology of the word dwarf use age pre dates it gladiatorial shouting yeah? But does it pre date dwarf? I know Craig use to use it elsewhere in the 90s too. But I want date chronology. Fastest and most correct answer to the task wins something
Ok so Marooned was nov 89, predates Gladiators by a couple of years
And indeed even makes it an 80s catchphrase of sorts.
This claims John Fasharnoo ( said in a chris Morris voice) is a git and it wasn’t even used in the first series of Gladiators then, i dont personally remember any kick up of fans at the time though myself.
