Ever since seeing that one episode of the IT Crowd where Roy gets the term ‘damp squib’ wrong, I’ve wanted to propose a campaign for the term ‘damp squid’ to replace ‘damp squib’.
‘Squid’ is just so much better. ‘Squib’ is just boring. Of course, I can start using ‘squid’, but more than likely I’ll just get corrected and no one will believe me when I say I said it on purpose.
So, I hereby launch the official Campaign for Damp Squid. Pass the word along.
(We’ll leave ‘pedestal’ where it is. ‘Pedal stool’ is just silly.)
