Quandary Resolution 223
homologate, instill, dissertate, hoi polloi
Whenever he gets a few drinks in him, my friend Paolo inevitably begins to dissertate on the finer points of car racing; last night's lecture was on the crucial difference between the Pontiac GTO — mass-produced American garbage, a so-called sports car for the hoi polloi — and its namesake, the Ferrari GTO, a masterpiece with only 39 cars ever produced, each one instilled with the essence of Enzo Ferrari himself, where the "O" for "homologated" actually means something because you might otherwise think the car was custom-built.
