This is a cupertino, according to the evidence provided in the first hit. Nothing feminine about Mr. Washington. If it’s a malaprop, it might be due to the familiarity of his name. It is capitalized, which is interesting.
OP> Denzel in distress needs some help. Ok, I dropped my bike in my backyard
A> It’s damsel, darlin… we still love ya.
OP> Ok, I was really freaked out. It was pouring raining. I was soaked wet all through to my underwear. My bike was laying out there like a helpless puppy. I couldn’t remember the exact expression and googled it (apparently google thought I meant Denzel). Anyway, life is tough for those of us for whom English is a second language
Going to save a Denzel in distress in industrial park..ugh
