Quandary Resolution 2579
taradiddle, double act, nonplus, bumptious
Flim, the bumptious half of the popular double-act 'Flim & Flam', came out with such a characteristic farrago of lies, with such elaborately implausible taradiddle, that his dumb stooge Flam just stood there by his side, utterly nonplussed when called upon in court to contribute his own explanation for their partnership's long-standing tax evasion and for the grotesque disparity in their respective earnings.
