Quandary Resolution 380
savoir-faire, piffle, leviathan, gallimaufry
"Moving on to the Miscellaneous Lots, Ladies and Gentlemen: Lot 666, a choice example of the Victorian taxidermist's art - one leviathan basking fesswise, mounted in a bow fronted glass case furnished with a mermaid's bower of intricate tesserae, attended by megalodon and kraken counter-rampant, and accommodating an enticing melange of sirens au naturel - provenance and certificate of authenticity courtesy of the Loch Ness Tartan Charlatans . . . what on earth do you mean, sir, 'utter piffle'? - really, if you don't intend to bid, please have the savoir-faire to remain silent; so what shall we say for this oceanic gallimaufry?"
