Quandary Resolution 3905
logomachy, Panglossian, volant, surfeit

"You, sir, are a flippin' bitch!" shouted Lord Cranbury, holding aloft his shield to display the heraldic chicken of his ancestral house, its wings volant in a fierce flightless attack posture; and so began the Great Logomachy of 936, in which six lords from neighboring regions converged on a battlefield, brandishing shields with ostriches, canaries, pelicans, and other non-intimidating birds (for some reason Lord Dinglebury had a platypus on his), and shouting a surfeit of rather unimaginative insults at one another for nine straight hours, after which time they called a "truce," and repairing to the nearest castle commenced feasting and wenching; and raising their silvern goblets high, they took it in turns to propose Panglossian toasts about how "gentlemen, it simply getteth not any better than this."
