Quandary Resolution 1836
nepotism, proscenium, dorsal, fossick
Fidgeting on the proscenium, the stage manager struggled to entertain the whining audience with an extemporaneous lecture on cetology, while, behind the curtain, crew members fossicked for tools to amputate the cause of the delay -- the offending flipper on the back of poor Moby Dick, whose unpresentable costume had been designed, in a nepotistic arrangement, by a misinformed papier-mâché artist who fiercely insisted that sperm whales have dorsal fins: the director's spoiled nephew.
