Quandary Resolution 5372
blandish, pergola, midriff, transpontine
Sitting in a wisteria-draped pergola on her estate, Dame Edith listened politely to Dr. Mello's usual blandishments ("You're looking more beautiful than ever today, my dear.") until he began describing the marvelous results she could expect after the extensive dental work he proposed, ("You'll have a smile like Julia Roberts," etc.) whereupon the Lady erupted in a laugh from her midriff with a now-famous transpontine pun: "Doctor, that's 'a bridge too far!'"
