Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


We always knew it as 'fullscape', for we had only heard the word (never seen it written), but 'foolscap' as I know it today, brings to mind not just the sheets of paper we used in school to pass our puerile jokes around the classroom, but also the hugger-mugger scramble to hide them from our teacher, lest she should discover that our under-developed weltanschauung was based mostly on our budding genitalia.

Comedians might don foolscaps, tell puerile jokes, and act all hugger-mugger, but they are often thinkers in disguise, whose humor bubbles up from the depths of a unique weltanschauung. (by Rudi)


My weltanschauung has collapsed into a puerile hugger-mugger of disjointed episodes of unendurable angst reduced to three words scrawled on a half sheet of foolscap: ‘My life sucks.’ (by gumo420)


Up in the loft and dusting off an old foolscap ring binder that I'd found buried with other school files under a hugger-mugger of decaying junk, I came across my own puerile scribblings and was surprised to find that my adolescent Weltanschauung - crassly hidebound as it then was - had so coloured my conduct in later life.
