Quandary Resolution 2663
gris-gris, vindictive, cloud-cuckoo-land, futz
When my country, Cloud-Cuckoo Land, gained independence from France in the 1960s, the time for anticolonial vindictiveness and for futzing around was over and I was commissioned to design the new national flag featuring my people's gris-gris, a cuckoo bird sitting on a cloud, a project I performed to the satisfaction of our President who honored me by bestowing on me for one year the title of 'Le Grand Cuckoo de Cloud-Cuckoo Land'.
