Quandary Resolution 1723
hades, tepid, countermand, ambrosial

'Me too!') howled Cerberus, hauling himself up on to the bank and shivering off a flying chandelier of icicles; 'and if Hades thinks we can derive any satisfaction whatsoever from dog-paddling to order in his freezing Styx ('Tepid it's not!' . . .'Brass monkey!') then he should seriously consider his position and think again ('Think what?' 'He means issue an ambrosial countermand, flea bag!').
