Quandary Resolution 5501
higgledy-piggledy, nunatak, parvenu, maw
Although there were parvenus aplenty at the Altamonte Country Club, the admissions committee received Bert's application for full membership like the wind blowing off a nunatak after a series of reported gaffes and gaucheries: "dining with his ample maw open, peas and potatoes spilling out on the table;" "chasing the peacocks higgledy-piggledy around the grounds, cocktail in hand," and the final straw, "flaunting a Gold Presidential Rolex with diamond-encrusted bezel."
