The first time I saw a DIY article talking about a sucker, I had to look at the pictures to find out what it was, LOL.

For those who think these comments strange, in the US, a sucker may be a lollipop, a type of North American fish related to the carp, a shoot coming up from the root of a tree, a dupe or a fool, but not a "suction cup," which is what we call those things.
