Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


"You know she could speak Yat? just like she came from N'Orleans, and the last time I saw her before she disappeared, she was with this real fancy-pants kind of a guy, just at the juncture of Main and the Twin Forks, Romulus and Remus, and they were both yammin' an' yawwin' and I got the impression that the old boy, he was definitely eighty if he was a day, all done up with a waistcoat and a bowler hat, and a grey moustache, and his shoes! what they used to call co-respondents, you know the kind I mean? two-tone, well it felt like he was offering Lolly an olive branch, trying to heal some kind of a breach, maybe he's her old pappy, or gran-pappy, begging her to come home, though I never knew how she learned to talk that jive, because I know for a fact she was born here, right here in Hanna Barbera, but I bet that old guy could tell you something, Phelim."
