Jim Harbaugh tells you about the squirting pickle

The English language is a wonderful thing. It continually evolves and changes, allowing us to describe the world around us and how we react to it in new, vivid ways. Perhaps nowhere is this more evident than in the use of idiom. We can take a set of words that appears to state one thing on a literal level and give it a wholly separate meaning. No computer could do this -- that's how special human language is.

Even National Signing can be described in terms and phrases that don't, on their face, have anything to do with recruiting. Right, Jim Harbaugh?:

The way.

The pickle.

Squirted.

Never mind, the English language is a terrible thing.
