Quandary Resolution 3700
bonanza, ungulate, tragus, macaronic

Ethelbert was a child prodigy and showed his intelligence from an early age, as in naming body parts, where he would not settle for “ear”, but pointed out tragus, pinna, and external os, and no neighing and mooing, or horsies and doggies for him, but various sorts of ungulates, such as equines and bovines, plus the specific breeds of many canines and felines, and his early macaronic speech sorted itself out into English, Spanish, French, and Esperanto, which he used to describe the bonanza of candy he discovered inside the plastic ovaloids he found on Easter morning.
