Quandary Resolution 1395
persnickety, ortolan, abdicate, proliferate
'How very kind, don't mind if I do,' I replied obligingly, never known to be persnickety about table etiquette when it came to polishing off such illicit juicy morceaux; and with a mouth poised to savour the incoming succulent ortolan I ventured: 'I dare say these little blighters would proliferate abominably but for your timely culinary culling, and so I trust that you will never abdicate your responsibility to snare, fatten, drown, and roast to perfection the pretty birdies.'
