If I recall right, this was (somewhat obliquely, as far as _this_ leftpondonian is concerned) discussed when the term 'celtiboink' first appeared. I think we more or less tacitly ignore Those particular overtones. For what it's worth, around here "boink" is the little springy, dingy sound you get when pushing buttons on various electronic gadgets. Also, the sound of water dripping from the leaky tap into the sink. Padraic. -- Gwerez dah, chee gwaz vaz, ha leal.
