Mensagem:  I believe "squimberry" is an invented word, something that does not exist outside fairy tales.  Am I wrong?

A "tart" is more or less a small pie.  However, it has a double meaning.  It's not commonly used in the USA, but I've heard Australians and others use it to mean "woman" in a negative sense (more or less like "vadia").
