We’ve all been in them, those situations that no matter how hard we try we just can’t escape from. Fingers dug in, reaching, grasping at straw, only to find what little progress we’ve made give way under slippery footing… Yes, that can be life’s quagmire, metaphorically speaking.
According to our Ape-ictionary, quagmire is simply any bog or marsh nestled in a low-lying area that can be difficult to escape from because of the ground’s quicksand like qualities.
However, Seth MacFarlane has also created a character on the animated series Family Guy known as Glenn Quagmire, or just Quagmire. He describes Quagmire as “an appalling human being who is still caught in the rat-pack era”. The Side Bars come alive with chimp hysteria at the mere mention of Quagmire and his antics.
Fingers crossed that my fabulous monkey’s do not find themselves in a Quagmire as they become swamped with ideas for Sunday, December 22nd’s word, Quagmire!
