Quandary Resolution 3087
impresa, raggle-taggle, adventitious, billet

"A-you-a people-a don't-a impresa me-a," said the angry Italian farmer, wagging his finger reprovingly at the raggle-taggle band of soldiers who had been adventitiously billeted in his Tuscan hovel (each of whom bore on his sleeve the impresa of a two-headed custard stork, rampant on a field of vermilion, with the motto Absit Invidia--"No Offense Intended"--beneath it).
