Quandary Resolution 3349
cacique, inquiline, strudel, salvo

My grandma makes the most amazing apple strudel (her secret ingredient: Metriocnemus knabi, an inverterbrate species of inquiline which inhabits the Sarracenia purpurea plant--it gives the strudel a zesty "crustacean" flavor no one else's has), and I remember one year, she made a huge batch of the stuff as a sort of salvo for Hyman "the Dredel" Turtletaub, the mobster who ran the Upper Left Side in those days: for as it turned out, the cacique's reputation had been tarnished by accusations of zoophilia (later proved almost entirely baseless, I'm happy to report), and only a sit-down "apple strudel feed" could bring the Six Jewish Families to the bargaining table to heal the bad blood.
