Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


Forgive me for not being a better deipnosophist -- you see, my former life as a palmer has instilled in me a tendency toward cheeseparing, a tendency that remains strong no matter how much abundance confronts me at the table, and while I wish I possessed more of the conversational skills of a compere, I simply cannot pull my mind away from thoughts about what we waste as we dine.

Sir Chelsey Chesterford, a cheeseparing compere and a Type A deipnosophist, was a pitiful palmer who tried a trick in which he would attempt to get every single seven and six out of the deck so incredibly quick that he would throw it in the air, and grip in his fist, each one before the rest hit the bricks, and just as he did, in an incredible twist this chick went to slap him and missed -- of course she got arrested for this, but not before 44 cards kissed the bricks.
