Quandary Resolution 1906
meiny, tandoor, qualm, parse
Looking about the royal kitchens, Her Majesty had severe qualms that none of her trembling meiny (not a competent cook among them since the chef's untimely demise) had ever baked naan in a tandoor before, so promptly rolled up her sleeves while calling out 'off with their head', wondering, as she rolled out the dough and her halberdiers set to, whether parsing would reveal it preferable to have said 'off with their heads', but consoled herself that the outcome would have been much the same.
