Quandary Resolution 2856
tulipomania, don't shoot the messenger, ambiguous, physiognomy

Amro revealed, staring at me with an implacable physiognomy, in the midst of tulipomania, "but don't blame me", he continued, "oh no, don't shoot the messenger, I have been unambiguous for years that you should sell your house, your horses, your Rembrandts and Brueghels, your wife even, if anyone would have her, and invest the proceeds in a handful of flowers".
