Quandary Resolution 4974
fishwife, dead tree edition, encroach, asyndeton

Just as the burly biker was about to bash the abashed professor with the professor’s own dead tree edition of the oxford dictionary, the professor cried out: “Please, while I plead guilty to encroaching on your conversation, I said nothing about your wife’s ass, nor does the term fishwife imply you are a fish; you are both, no doubt, quite an erudite, peaceful, forgiving. . .”, but the book abruptly ended the professor’s entreaty as well as his sentence, which became, he would explain when consciousness returned, a rather unintended example of an asyndeton.
