Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


"Drink up!" shouted Dylan above the throng of voices, "sup up!" roared Brendan, "for tomorrow we'll be well-hung, over, and a drop o the Pure is the finest cure-all known to man nor beast, not even the rectitudinous swinehood would utter a syllabub against it, bejasus, for I am moved to consider becoming involved in a triangulation exercise," he lowered his voice and whispered into the bar-maid's shell-like, and she, to her immortal credit blushed and said: "away with you, Mr Brendan, too, to imagine I would participate in such a thing, a three-some with yourself and himself," indicating with her thumb Dylan who was balancing a pint glass on the tip of his snubby nose while singing Land of Our Fathers to the tune of The Good Ship Lollipop being hammered out on The Bluebell's joanna by Morrie the Gaffer, and then, to her perpetual discredit, gave the playwright a sly wink and indicated that when the pub closed she might well be walking his way, while in the Snug, Gilly Grasper, Boss of the Nutwood Underworld gave himself a smug grin and snapped his fingers for another double at the double, for everything was going exactly to plan, just as he had been assured it would, oh, yes indeed!
