Quandary Resolution 5716
per contra, compere, pontificate, butyraceous
For the coronation of the new Queen of England, the elderly President Humblefink was asked to be the compere; he gladly accepted and at the ceremony he pontificated about the queen as if he were her father introducing her to a new suitor, preening himself at the audience's apparent approval of his speech; per contra, the crowd was pleased, not about the speech, but by the president's warm, soothing, butyraceous voice.
