Quandary Resolution 5156
agglutinate, kore, drub, corsair

Ali Khat, the corsair, managed to drub the heavily armed British vessel carrying a precious cargo of purloined Greek antiquities, losing only his ship’s figurehead to a cannonball, so he celebrated by lashing a kore from the booty to the prow, and joined the crew, who were inspired by their easy victory, to agglutinate English-sounding elements into the words of an Arabic sea shanty.
