Quandary Resolution 3032
nouveau riche, insipid, anacoluthon, canonical


Sturgent Waldtrount, keen to overcome the nouveau riche status of a fortune derived from the sale of herring paste and bicycle clips, attended the Grazenthumb College dinner with his insipid but coruscatingly attired young wife Melusina; all seemed well until Sturgent, tiring of the anacoluthons in the discussion concerning the canonical works of Marlowe, decided to ginger things up a bit by dousing the Dean with the Cullen Skink.
