Scene: John and I are watching “Top Gear”, a British car show. I’ve fallen almost asleep on the couch.

Announcer: It’s even, you might say, a bit squidgy.

Me: Squidgy?

John: That’s what he said.

Me: As in squid?

John: I don’t know.

Me: What do squid have to do with cars?

John: Maybe it’s a British thing.
