Quandary Resolution 4347
subjugate, doomsayer, algid, echolalia

“I need more echolalia”, music producer CW demanded of a baby whom he had enrolled in a 1970s heavy metal band, but the baby would not be easily subjugated and he refused to automatically repeat the chorus lyrics of their song “Algid Doomsayer”, in which a baby penguin warns of an impending ice age and end of the world.

¶I'm not a heavy metal fan but would like to have a recording of that song, if only to remember the laugh this sentence gave me. Alas, searching for "Algid Doomsayer" brings up... only this post! —Rudi  (12/19/12)

¶Thank you, sir! Perhaps someone in the QQ community has a talent for music and will be inspired to compose 'Algid Doomsayer'. —Sami  (12/20/12)
