Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


Nang nang nang went the Dolly, Bish bash bosh went the Cook, Bong Bong Bong went the big gong, And in a deep state of righteous fuliginous irruption I said: "Goodnight Vienna, Goodnight Gay Paree, I'm going outside now and I may be some time, so please I pray you, please, Do not wait up for me! No don't wait up for me! " (by MissTeriWoman)


Deliver me from deep state woes!
Fuliginous intrigues!
That secretly irrupt, when those
Who govern try to please.
I don't like using childish slang
But that aint nang, folks, that ain't nang!!
