User avatarQuestionable Truffles

Having spent a good five minutes looking at this, just what the hell is this?

Truffles I get. Commerce and purchasing items I get. Walking around in supermarkets taking photos of curios and novelties I get. But squiffy truffles? Can you describe a truffle as ‘squiffy’?

Were it not for the fact that my phone recognised the word ‘squiffy’ without much input from me, I would be inclined to start screaming about why such a word should exist and who the Ben Nevis is actually using it in polite conversation or any conversation at all?

I used the word once, maybe twice, in my whole life of lives.

Would you eat a squiffy truffle?

  • Squiffy is clearly short for squiffingtons. If they were called Squiffingtons Truffles, would that be easier to handle?

  • I woldn’t because chocolate liqueurs are awful whatever you call them. I have no problems with the word squiffy though.

    You know what I like to do when I’ve taken over the world? I like to leer.

    Look at me!

  • Ugh. I bet you’re wearing your fluffy pants. You, leering in your fluffy pants. That’s a kind of world domination that nobody wants.

    Well it’s happening, baby, so get used to it. Maybe I’m playing some Wang Chung in the background. Maybe I’m throwing avocados at people as they walk past. That’s the kind of domination I’m kicking (what?)

  • Would these be better if they were called Squiffy Triffles?
