Too Late, Stupid

You know when you think of the perfect thing to say, way after the moments been and gone? Yeah, it sucks. Something else that sucks is the English language because despite everyone having experienced this at some point or another, we still don't have a word to describe it.

In French it's called l'espirit de l'escalier. In German it's treppenwitz. I'm not sure of other languages, but I'm sure they've all got something similar.

Come on English, you want to pull your wordy socks up. You know you're not doing good when the French beat you.
