Quandary Resolution 3424
lissotrichous, synod, tiding, hiemal

'Twas Bishop Engelbert of Humperdinck, that lissotrichous legate sent by Pope Priapus IX to the Ecclesiastical Synod of 923, who stood forth in the assembly at that moment and proclaimed: "Brothers in Christ, I bring you glad tidings in this hiemal hour: for once our business here is concluded, His Eminence has invited you all back to his apartment in Rome for a little spongecake, a little wine, and perhaps even a game of Twister or two," to which the assembled prelates all leaped to their feet and roared a deafening cheer.
