Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


And down at Trumpington Towers, in Ayrshire, Martin Elginbrod is just teeing up on the first Tee for his first round of golf with The Next President of the United States of America, Duck Trumpington; the future Most Powerful Man in The World has magnanimously extended to his Edinburgh Lawyer the honour of First Swing, and as Elginbrod's backswing reaches it's zenith, the man with Day-Glo hair takes the cigar from his nouth and says: "you know Elgin-Brod, Brod was Tito's real surname, you ain't a Slav are you?" and Elginbrod's harebrained slice sends the ball rising almost vertically, and the eyes of The Boss's bodyguards follow it high in the sky and then the tiny pause befoe it begins it's plummet towards the beacon below; one of the bodyguards leaps forward, his hand on Elginbrod's shoulder gives him the extra lift, so that just five inches above the glowing fire on his employer's head, his outstretched right hand catches the ball neatly and his momentum carries him on to crash on top of Duck. and both men tumble to the grass; immediately, other bodyguards dive at Elginbrod and in two seconds he is pinned to the ground by five beefy FBI Agents, who frisk him roughly and handcuff his wrists behind his back, as Duck is helped to his feet, staring angrily at the lawyer: "I shoulda guessed there'd be some Mooslim in a man with Brod in his name, nice try, Buddy, but no cigar - the First Amendment's gonna be the first thing to go, I got no time for pinko eristic gobbledegook - You're Fired!" and, throwing down his driver he plods away, surrounded by the rest of his Security Detail, pausing only to accept the ball from it's catcher, sign it with a pen held out instantly by his Secretary, and hand it back to the young man: "here's something for your family to cherish in the centuries to come, with God's Blessing on you and yours, son," and the catcher drops to one knee to receive a pat on the head, then the group vamooses leaving only the prostrate Edinburgh lawyer and his captors!
