Quandary Resolution 2864
reactionary, jacquerie, samara, prink
When the jacquerie first broke out, Marie Antoinette was seated before a gilded mirror, prinking herself as she feasted on a samara; and when her minister, the reactionary Comte d'Artois, entered and asked her how they should handle the peasant revolt, the Queen glanced at her fruit and suggested: "Let them eat samaras;" but when she turned to see the Comte's reaction, he frowned and shook his head; and after a moment she proposed instead: "Cake, then: let them eat cake."
