Marm,
I think a squidgy is an item to push liquids around and corral them to push them through an opening.
Prunes/Chocolate: I think I get it.:confused:

I personally thought that Squidgy was the term used for the type of chocolate cake which would stick to the wall if you threw it!

That isn't right?
