Quandary Resolution 663
sub judice, at loggerheads, refurbish, frangible
"No matter, Watson," aspirated Holmes with asperity, conveying to me his bespawled ski goggles for instant refurbishment,"that the Case of the Interdigitated Virgins languishes sub judice, for I now fathom that this very dunderhead Schlomo - funicular guy and failed funambulist - was none other than that aforementioned rapacious abductor of those frangible ornaments of womanhood - and that the evil swine Moriarty, with whom I shall ever remain at loggerheads, is therefore still at large, wreaking havoc, and that most heinously; but hold - I surcease - my noetic prescience sees him now, rappelling down a cliff tramontane . . . we must not disdain to traverse the karst and apprehend him before he subjects those maidens to a veritably labyrinthine game of strip conquian - or is my inane if sedulous obscurantism quite beyond you, dear fellow? . . . [lacuna] . . . soothe with liniment the lineaments of my pallid brow, there's a good chap, that would be altogether apposite, don't you know?"
