Quandary Resolution 2717
calliopean, primal scene, condign, corybantic
Although Dr. Catharsis worked to elicit the wild and corybantic from his quiet patient, Mrs. Katzenjammer simply refused to emit a primal scream (remaining stone silent even when she was asked to visualize her parents comporting themselves most distastefully in a “primal scene”); and yet when the famous psychoanalyst spilled a bit of coffee on the carpet, thus endangering the subject's new shoes, her voice revealed a heretofore unknown calliopean aspect, and in no uncertain terms she promised to award him his condign punishment.
