Quandary Resolution 2851
hey rube, Ruritanian, wistful, fungible
I'd come with the kids specially to see old Charlie the Chimp once again, swinging from the rigging like a swashbuckling Errol Flynn in some Ruritanian romance of the seven seas, and I was growing quite misty-eyed and wistful at the prospect; but what should lope into the ring but some fungible creature that really had none of Charlie's charisma, so I bawled out the girl back at the box-office, and she in turn immediately bellowed 'Hey Rube!' - which somehow seemed to bring all the circus hands running, armed with cudgels.
