This item apparently comes from Canadian French, but it was observed in
Canadian English. Does anyone recognize it or have an idea about it? A
My paternal grandfather was all French-Canadian
[...], and my father's standing April Fool joke came
from him. It was (caution, semi-phonetic spelling of
word(s) no French speaker I've ever asked has recognized):
"Look, look!! There's a gillygalou bird!"
Ever seen/heard that before?
