Garridge is the one I meant, and the least French. Kaff is what I meant, and
I'm glad it's a deliberate joke! Baggage is pronounced the same by Americans
and Brits, who both pronounce it differently than the French, I assume it's
an older word.
I was overgeneralising for the sake of the joke, but I may have been simply
wrong in my assumptions...
