Quandary Resolution 3051
hircine, passing, grotesque, handsel

 

"If I am not much mistaken," said the blindfolded Gretel, fondling the goat's ears and scenting the cumbered air, "your handsel is of the hircine variety, and although some might consider such a gift a grotesque social gaffe, betokening as it does an unrestrainedly lubricious intent, I cannot fault it, but find it passing acceptable, big boy."
