Quandary Resolution 3964
purl, mither, fructify, desolate

As I sat in my vibrating beanbag reading Volume 12 of Groovius Holmsteen's The Fructification and Desolation of the Nurbian Empire (which won the Itzhak Flurber Award for Revisionist History in 1992), I happened to glance out the window, where I saw my little daughter, Zelberta, mithering an anteater as the beast tried to hoover a hill full of ants into its protuberant schnozz; meanwhile Zelberta's twin brother Zelbert was micturating happily on a duck, sending lemon-yellow rivulets purling down the irritated mallard's once-proud feathers.
