Maybe "squelch" is unstoppable, maybe only a fool would would think he can beat it, but gall-durn-it, this fool's going to try. I'm diving right back into the fray with a few new challangers of my own:
"wag": The noun form. My 9th grade English teacher once called me a "young wag". It was a formative moment.Maybe they can form an alliance and bring down that uppity "squelch" once and for all before finally succumbing to vicious in-fighting.
"scallywag": Same, just "scally"-er.
"sauced": The drunken form.
