Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


The youth of today seem to be filled with an ethereal, air-headed mindedness which subists solely on a diet of production-line artificialities, namely the never-ending treadmill of body-image ectypes, of luxoriously ruffled bosoms and fantastically furbelowed fannies of callipygous construction; yesterday's idol was shaped with stick and stone, today's is printed on paper.

There could never be another, no ectype, nobody who could come close to the surfer girl of my high school dreams, who stood on the sand as ethereal music wafted skyward – tall, leggy, and tan, long blonde hair highlighted by days in the sun, azure eyes like tiny lagoon pools, busty and callipygous, nearly bursting out of her two-piece suit which had a scarlet furbelow behind, like a tiny flower, tempting the bee from the tattoo in the small of her back.
