    I don't know what you mean by 'squished' but 'neither one' means that between two things, not one or the other was better or softer, or harder or any other adjective. Or not one or the other flew or danced or any other verb.

    Re: difficult sentence

    The sentence "Neither one squished" probably exists in a context like the following:

    I tried to squish the soft-looking pillows. To my surprise, they were hard as rocks. Neither one squished.

    In this case, it would mean that neither pillow felt (or sounded) squishy when pressed or squeezed (= squished).
