Quandary Resolution 2637
soubrette, witness, Ruritanian, dapple
Accoutered in a splendiferous uniform encrusted with decorations for exotic gallantry, and twirling his moustache in a manner that the chorus girls nightly found so enchanting, a handsome young witness proclaimed in ringing tones, before a court of quite Ruritanian romantic sensibility, that well yes, as it happened his identical twin brother did indeed prefer teasing soubrettes to dour duennas; at which point the delicious Fifi fainted decoratively (but decorously), her cortage dappling the boards centre stage with scattered rose petals.
