    What does this silly exclamation actually mean?

    Gad was something to do with God I believe....so I imagine it's some sort of euphemism

    Zooks to capture the essence of Zeus, maybe?

    if you put the z in the first word, you get "gadz ooks" which could be "god's ooks"

    Might make more sense to someone else :p

    Gadzooks actually is a giant reptile, a distant relative to godzilla, gadzoleus, gasman, batman, the octupus, and several other fictional characters.

    And, please, don't tell me that I googled it. I knew it by myself.

    EDIT: ok, I'm a sissy and I googled it. I would've never thought of the solution by myself.

    That's the correct answer.

    What are "god's ooks"?

    I'll admit that I DID look it up on google before posting this, but the first thing I thought when I saw 'ooks before looking it up was "Peter Pan"

    Of course the expression comes from the Cockney!

    Reminds me of the story of a working-class London Labour MP who asks his Conservative opposite number;

    "What should I take for this 'orrible 'eadache?"

    To which the Conservative replies;

    "A couple of aspirates"
