Quandary Resolution 5061
meed, eviscerate, repertoire, dispositive
"The Court can award no meed and must dismiss your lawsuit for the wrongful death of your son," ruled the judge, "for section 32(a) of the Florida statute is dispositive of your claim, insofar as it explicitly states that when a citizen feels threatened by the wearing of a hooded sweatshirt or low-slung, baggy, denim trousers, the citizen is not limited to a conventional repertoire of defensive measures such as the discharge of a firearm, but may also 'tie the offending party to the rails in the path of an oncoming freight train, instill hemlock into his ear, or' --as was the case here-- 'eviscerate the offending party from sternum to groin by means of a sword or military bayonet.'"
