Quandary Resolution 2651
volte-face, spallation, stultify, canorous
"It would appear, Mr. President," said Dr. Blandheimer gravely, "that the fusion of the two radioactive elements has resulted, firstly in the stultification of the nucleus, and secondly in its fragmentation into multiple nucleons, a process known as "spallation"; with the unforeseen result being that anyone who now comes in contact with this new compound lapses inexplicably into song, usually something of the Broadway variety" (and at this very moment Blandheimer did a shocking volte-face, leaping onto the president's desk and bursting into a canorous rendition of "Memories").
