Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


I'd coo and coo in praise of you
With many, much and great ado
But I'll eschew hypocrisy,
Divest me of tautology,
And leave it to an earlier sage
Who claimed the mome raths did outgrabe
(by OldRawgabbit)


The maddening, tautologous cooing, cooing, cooing of pigeons drove Throckmorton into such a frenzy he began to dance a wild merengue with one hand waving free, chortle, outgrabe, and divest himself of his clothing with blissful, mindless abandon. (by mtc)
