Quandary Resolution 4805
cockshy, green gown, decussate, whangdoodle
O daughter, monstrous, wanton! -- thou wert espied by one and all down in the field, reclining and spreading thy limbs to make a decussate figure in the grass, for the pleasure of some hideous Satan-sent whangdoodle -- or perhaps the cartwright's son from the village? --it wast hard to make out -- and now thou appearest at thy father's table, in thy selfsame green dress, to make a cockshy of me before my guests!
