Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


"Let me explain how the Blunderbuss Campaign is gonna work:" the NRA lobbyist said to the Conservative Congressman over cocktails in a haunt not far from Capitol Hill, "first we hire the best public relations firms we can to convince the American public--morons who suffer from no nimiety of common sense, heh, heh, heh--it's the God-given right of every man, woman, and child to pack a blunderbuss for 'self-defense;' next we pay mouthpieces like Fox, Limbaugh, and Beck to talk it up in the media, and albeit Liberals will carp, we treat them jocosely or as unpatriotic; then we cash in big time when the morons stampede to the gun stores to buy their pricey blunderbusses--brilliant, huh?"

Albeit surprised by the nimiety of my father bringing a blunderbuss to eliminate a single pesky rodent from our cupboard, my jocose roommate managed to keep his mouth shut. (by wordgirl)


"It is a good rifle for people who have poor aim, because of the nimiety of firepower coming out of the flared muzzle", the jocose gun dealer told me as he handed me the blunderbuss and he added "it is also a favorite of the drunk and cross-eyed, albeit I do not generally sell to those types".
