linguistics

Shadow säger:
the cheapest I can find is 199 danish crowns
which is 24 quid

Adam säger:
oh not bad
im surprised foreign people use the word quid
i thought it was a totally british slang thing

Shadow säger:
well it is
i just cant be assed to do the £ sign

Adam säger:
i wonder where the word came from
quid
sounds like common muck

Shadow säger:
someone got mugged and brutally beaten by a squid
and his last word
trying to tell people who did it
was "---quid"
and theyre like "hes trying to tell us they took his money!"
and he's like "no..s..uh..q--quid"
"oh poor man, his teeth have all been knocked out. yes, yes, they took your money, we know"
"nnngh"
and the man dies.
"he's dead. poor guy, he never got to find out who beat him and took his.. what was the word? quad?"
"no, quid"
"quid. i quite like that."
"indeed. let's always refer to our monetary possessions as quid from now on"
"grand idea, thomson, grand idea"
