    Do goodies wear hoodies?

    I came across the sentence "Do goodies wear hoodies?" in Oxford - solutions series. I got no idea of Goodies, even though I have been searching for its precise and contextual meaning; it's in vain! Please help me figure it out. thank you so much!

    I assume that "goodies" are good people. Hoodies are articles of clothing. They are usually a sweater with a hood that one can pull over the head. People who wear such clothing are generally thought of as bad people - criminals and such.

    I'm going to feel very self-conscious on the bus to work this morning in my hoodie!

    Don't... people should be afraid of you! You could whip out your red pen and cut off a dangling participle without even batting an eye.
