Quandary Resolution 1811
excommunicate, ornithopter, parlay, confiscable
'I regret to say, My Lord, that in parlaying his generous allowance on an aerial circumnavigation of the Long Room, and having cramponned his way up above the fake Gainsborough, young Master Cedric thought to piggy-back a ride on a stucco putto, unwisely according it the levitational capability of an ornithopter, with the inevitable result that his descent was precipitate, his stake declared confiscable, and his blasphemous expletives obligated the Chaplain to pronounce an ad interim excommunication.'
