Attempts to resolve the Quandary:



Television news producer Shirley Eugest realized that she could be a cunctator no longer and needed to superannuate their long-running “Eye on the News” commentator, whose recidivism into bosh could come at the most inopportune times -- such as disaster reporting -- where only last week he had remarked during coverage of a forest fire, “If you’ve got some marshmallows, I’ve got a chocolate bar; it’s s’mores time!”

That schlemiel Phärtman accused me of "cunctating" for so long on the dissemination of society-reassimilation materials to the ex-cons under my charge that the information within them became superannuated and worthless, thus sparking a rise in recidivism among my criminal peeps; but to my mind this insinuation is complete and utter bosh, since (as everyone knows) a "cunctator" is a cross between a cucumber and a potato, and no one e'er relapsed into crime because of a friggin' spoiled veggie or two.
