Quandary Resolution 2536
contradistinguish, cynosure, microcosm, apposite
“On the contrary, Madame Speaker,” retorted Lenny indignantly, “I think the microcosm represented by the colony of highly active fungi currently swirling about my foot is a highly apposite subject for discussion in a forum on mushrooms—in stark contradistinction (if I may say so) to the highly touted cynosure of our keynote speaker, the genome sequence of the Périgord truffle, which quite frankly makes me want to scratch my foot from sheer boredom.”
