Quandary Resolution 5130
bluebeard, clemency, mot juste, od
The bluebeard possessed such od that woman after woman would be inexplicably drawn to him - even some fully aware of his history and their likely fate; so when the judge demanded a reason for the ladies' attraction and also his motivation, before any clemency would be considered for the crime of serial murders, he replied with the mot juste: "lust."
