Quandary Resolution 5149
syncope, anglicism, jape, meander
On the morning of his first visit to Dominican Republic Jake amused himself by meandering from bar to bar along the beach, drinking piña coladas by the pitcherful and japing at the mangled anglicisms he detected in the dialect of the local waitstaff, but by midafternoon he had succumbed to the blistering heat and fallen into a profound syncope, during which he hallucinated that an enormous marine mammal crashed headlong onto shore only to burst into flames while the local populace scurried about screaming, "Oh, the huge manatee -- the huge manatee!"
