Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


We fain would hear the reasons why a lentiner should be caught, simply because there is saloop on the menu, and the parson's exegesis interpreted the text about birds incorrectly.

(by YorkieBooth)


A Lentiner we fain would eat,
With our saloop, and gaily
We'll do a jig upon our feet
To tunes from the ukulele;
And then we'll hear the preacher speak:
His exegesis aids our sleep.
(by OldRawgabbit)


"Before I give my exegesis on your poem, The Fall of the Lentiner Hawk, my dear, I fain would entertain my lips with a glass of that excellent saloop you served at the Master's soiree," said Professor Sir Clement Dane #1 to Professor Sir Clement Dane #2.
