You're stupid.

100 squid are what they throw on the ice in Detroit.

100 pounds is what it took Paul Bunyan to drive in 100 nails.

HERE IS YOUR SQUID/GIVE ME A 100 POUNDS

... A man walks into a restaurant and orders squid.
"Certainly Sir," says Jervaise the waiter, "Would you like to choose your squid from the tank over there?"
"I'll have that little green one with the moustache" says the customer.
"Oh no!" replies Jervaise "but he's my favourite! - He's so small and cute and friendly. Surely you'd prefer one of the bigger, meatier ones?"
"No" says the customer "It's got to be that one".
So Jervaise gets the little green squid out and puts him on the chopping block, raises his knife and ....... the little squid looks up and smiles, twitching his bushy moustache into a big friendly grin!
"It's no good", says Jervaise, "I can't do it. I'll have to ask Hans who does the washing up. He's a big, tough brute - he'll be able to do the evil deed."
So out comes Hans, while Jervaise disappears off in tears. Hans picks up the knife, raises it to chop the little squid's head off and...... once again the little friendly squid looks up and smiles, wiggling his little legs and twitching his little moustache. So Hans, too, finds it impossible to kill him.
The moral?

Hans that does dishes is as soft as Jervaise with mild green hairy-lip squid.

hi sugar,

per websters, "quid" means one pound sterling. 100 quid means 100 pounds.

quid is slang for pound, just as buck is slang for dollar.

Hope that helps.

It's British, You had to be there.

'Hands that do dishes can feel soft as your face with mild green Fairy Liquid' was one that had us rolling in the aisles and was to feature Patsy Kensit with the classic 'Mummy, why are your hands so soft?'.
