Quandary Resolution 1895
pharisaical, adventitious, farraginous, antediluvian
Dr. Grogsby, whose pharisaical attachment to the Hippocratic oath was such that he would rattle it off ostentatiously at the slightest provocation while blithely violating most of its principles, had in a drawer in his office a random and not particularly clean accumulation of truly antediluvian surgical instruments (made of wood, bone, ivory, and what looked like bronze rather than steel or plastic) and it was this adventitious farrago that he stirred around and turned over in search of something sharp to address the wart on Buddy's upper lip.
