Quandary Resolution 3769
satyr, snootful, bon vivant, fulcrum

Ormulf was a satyr, in more ways than one: a) he was lecherous as the day is long; 2) he had an excessive and uncontrollable sexual desire; and d) he had eyelike spots on his wings; but he was also a bit of a bon vivant, as evidenced by his epicurean penchant for fricaseed banana slug a l'orange, or his tendency to get a snootful of cognac and then, using his unfortunate half-brother Morley as a fulcrum, launch himself high into the air and come down in a perfect swan-dive into a strategically-placed vat of surmberries 'n' groats.
