Quandary Resolution 3948
dishabille, hapless, kedge, baccate

Once upon a time, as ye goode shippe Pumpkin kedged her way into the harbour her hapless crew-- in a sorry state of dishabille after a night of debauched revelry imbibing a seemingly innocuously baccate brew of a revolting purple hue--all decided as one man to leap onto the jetty, which, unbeknownst to them, had been moved six feet to starboard, resulting in their missing their target and landing with a sickening collective thud headfirst against the harbour wall; the resulting tremor giving rise to the first-ever tsunami, that much sought -after word by Scrabble players the world over.
