Quandary Resolution 3260
dogsbody, antihero, jitney, animadvert

In Slartibartfast Peckinpah’s 1978 film The Dingleberry Bush, a marginalized dogsbody with the unfortunate name Phartemus Flatch takes on the role of the classic antihero, hijacking a jitney with a slingshot and diverting its course from Macchu Picchu to Oslo--a geographically implausible detour, which drew a predictable animadvert from film critic Roger Ebert (though Ebert’s sidekick, Richard Roeper, gave the movie a “thumbs up”).
