    Turned out it is a slang word that means the same as when a woman might be described as "wet".
    He isn't being silly. He is just scared for his future and lashing out. Give him a break.

    Yeah mushy or squelchy works well for both.

    Up here its actually a very rude word for a woman's nether regions, basically the 'c' word. "Eh, Uschi, zeig mir deine Mushi!"
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    You remind me of me - losing concentration before reading a post in full. Here it is, again.

    "I thought the verb meant to hint or say subtly. I'm surprised (and a bit disappointed) to find it means that AND it means to state. "
