Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


"Criminy, this vulcanized rubber store is positively snying with spendthrifts," thought Skanky ruefully, pausing in his perusal of A Stork and Darmy Knight: The Bulwer-Lytton Omnibus to ruminate (and not for the first time) over how differently his life might have turned out, had he only gotten into the vulcanized rubber game when he had the chance.

His spendthrift ways kept him in the poor house during his active years as a writer, and he never lived to see the success of his magnum opus, reprinted as a glorious coffee table omnibus of photos and writings from boomtown Iquitos, when it was sny with ladies of the evening, pisco joints, and speculators waiting to get rich from the rubber trade, after the process to vulcanize the latex became profitable.

I realise my first post might not pass, since i've been too spendthrift with words there, and sny with commas, it might be considered more than one sentence - so here's me refining my QQ omnibus, vulcanizing my prose with sulphur of brevity.

(by rochi)


Don't think you look cool with hood over, in rude mood you brood over the fool's dollars, you foolish believer - get run over by my omnibus, because i'm so stocked, high piles, spendthrift with my sly lines and disses, i vulcanize your honeys, they bitter now, offended how you can't be rough enough in the sack, and here's me eat nails like chaff, who's tougher than that?
