"Snollygoster" is a word which was used in Britain around the 1930s to express shock, amazement or frustration.

Have you heard of the Dementors? The ghastly beings in JK Rowling´s Harry Potter, who suck the life out of anything and everything good? Good old JK based these characters on the real life snollygosters. They exist, indeed, you probably know one or two. They cast a dark cloud over everything and do their best to dishearten and to discourage. Here is the etymology: nolly = good, kind, adding an s transforms the word into its opposite. Goster = to tease out, or wheedle out. 
We don´t allow snollygosters on eslprintables, thank God for small mercies.
