Quandary Resolution 3485
gascon, stoically, bright-line, birr

(continued) Alas, on the day of the big event, the gascon William Tell missed the apple on his son Walter’s head and the arrow struck Walter’s leg with full birr instead, but the poor boy took it rather stoically, emitting a barely audible moan and thereby setting a new bright-line for Olympic spirit and bravery.
