Quandary Resolutions by royscranton

  • #2274 submitted 01/24/2011: benthic, manumit, telegenic, paphian

    Manumit me from this benthic love, my telegenic dominatrix, and let me be free from this paphian servitude forever.

  • #2271 submitted 01/23/2011: deauration, deprehend, adversary, homograph

    Only at the last minute did she deprehend him, for when Lady C left a note for Wendell to "Take the lead in window cleaning," she had no idea his homographic confusion would lead him to entirely remove her preciously deaurated frames and send them to the chemist--whom she secretly thought her worst adversary.

  • #2266 submitted 01/22/2011: deprehend, phobosophy, imbue, lollop

    Apprehending the dialectically-imbued phobosophist requires sudden deprehension, a lollop of logic as swift, unerring, and brute as the nastiest booby traps of the jungle guerrilla.

  • #2263 submitted 01/21/2011: expostulate, phobosophy, cavalier, totemic

    The cavalier phobosophy expostulated by the Christian Right in America is symptomatic of a totemic atavism that hates rationality because it leads to modernity, and modernity because it leads to rationality.
