Quandary Resolution 2403
seadog, pareidolia, flounce, ululate
At dawn, we sailed out of Nantucket harbor in our hunt for 'Jaws', when suddenly the captain, a weatherworn seadog leading our posse, started flouncing about uncontrollably and a moment later, broke out in an ear-piercing ululation intended, we were told by a crewman, to warn of the presence of predators in the vicinity, but a brash old lady in our company, who was unconvinced by his powers of pareidolia, struck him with her cane and admonished him to sit down and 'for Neptune's sake', give us some peace.
