Quandary Resolution 2857
tulipomania, don't shoot the messenger, ambiguous, physiognomy
The twenty-first century tulipomania that animated the subprime mortgage gold rush bore the selfsame engorged physiognomy of lust in league with abandon as its seventeenth-century prototype, a visage of such unambiguous and virulent vice that any lender's letter demanding right of repossession might - if you'll allow the pathetic fallacy - in vain protest 'don't shoot the messenger'.
