Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


So, while Nurse Hilda looked after the badly beaten Border Guard, Private 3rd Class Norbert Gluck, Jakob's girlfriend and partner in Cabaret Voltaire, Miriam Apfelbaum was rehearsing with her Kletzmer Band, Goodnight Vienna – they had a new Yiddish song, dashed off by the team of Kohle Gepäckträger and Israel Isidore Beilin about a downtrodden soldier, Schnozz Unterdinckke, abused by the brackish Officer Krupke, who himself becomes a well-deserved victim of murdrum at the hands of the heroic Brigand Chief Grigory Peckschmid, into whose band of Boyish Brigands the poor soldier is welcomed by the kindredly crew, and there he meets, falls in love with, and woos around their mountainous campfire, the glorious redheaded Bandit Queen, Ginger Maxmattz (the Chantwell part sung by Miriam, while Siggy Steinschloss, the Cantor in his local Synagogue, sings a schmaltzy Tenor for Schnozz and beefy Baritone for Grigory); "hey, two parts for the price of one is like BOGOF, almost as good as wholesale," according to Eggs Benedict, Mnukhh in Shlum – gone but not forgotten by two of his three best friends!
