Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


Little Pipkin Maybe-Maybenot sat on the bed and gazed raptly at his wife, as she read a first draft of next week's Queen's Speech, delivered in the wee small hours of the morning by a balaclava-wearing messenger of Tangerine Foster, the loquacious Ayatollah of the Democratic Unionist Partly, junior members in what even he had begun to think of as the Coalition of Chaos: "it is with great respect, begorrah," and Pipkin marvelled at Theresa's impersonation of Her Majesty, whose cadences she had off to a T, "that we recall the immortal words of our Lord, Bejasus Christ, in his First Letter to the Alphabetarians in the town of Ballymackadoodledoo, confirming the trothplight of all Loyal Orange Unionists to the United Kingdom of Northern Ireland and Great Britain, which embody the eternal welcome we extend to our dearest, closest and most preciousest Friends and Colleagues, although they are not included in the Holy Bible due to the scurrilous contrivance of the Pope of Rome, on whom we spit, and his bedfellow the Whore of Babylon, on whose image we trample, nevertheless this logion warms all my Subjects' hearts on this day as we reverently repeat them now: 'if yese're Protestant Irish, come into the Parlour, me boyoes, there's a Welcome here for youse'!"
