Quandary Resolutions by barrydunnage

  • #736 submitted 02/04/2010: daltonism, sanctimonious, vulnerary, pecuniary

    The trouble with his daltonism was the effect it had on registering European pecuniary exchanges, so that however vulnerary we were, it was difficult to get past his sanctimonious response to attempts at clarification.

  • #600 submitted 01/13/2010: vatic, go the extra mile, triskaidekaphobia, lapidary

    Recent vatic pronouncements from Rome go the extra mile in suggesting triskaidekaphobic forms of numerology, and in this sense require a sharp lapidary retort.

  • #589 submitted 01/11/2010: sacerdotal, Sapphic, pied-à-terre, flagitious

    The sacerdotal behaviour of the ordinands with Sapphic sexual influences living in the pied-a-terre upstairs is in my opinion criminally flagitious.
