Quandary Resolution 4936
canorous, white whale, chilblain, codger
That sea captain was a curious old codger who, far from calming down in response to the canorous vocalizations of white whales which we played in the background in hopes of lulling him to sleep, leapt out of his bed and began, by all appearances, to dance a mad hornpipe, notwithstanding the severe podiatric chilblains that had necessitated his visit to the emergency room in the first place.
