yowie
 n.— «Bagworms were the original inventors of the ghillie suit, the camouflage get-up hunters and snipers wear that makes them look like Swamp Thing. Another name for the ghillie is yowie. Fittingly, this is also what homeowners might say in September when they realize how many bagworms are eating on their Leyland cypress tree.» —“Get bagworms early—like now” by Gary L. Pierce News & Observer (Raleigh, North Carolina) May 27, 2006. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
