comment Why did the translator use ゴナラ here?
Yeah, I like the 御 = o or go theory. That was my first thought when I read SomethingJapanese's answer - that おなら was reanalyzed as polite prefix o + nara for the sake of the joke.

comment Why did the translator use ゴナラ here?
He says "グリシアのニンゲンマメは脂っこすぎる", with furigana over both グリシア and 脂っこ saying "グリース". That quote also shows how the BFG calls people ニンゲンマメ, which took me a little while to get, until I realized it's 人間豆 = human beans!
