Quandary Resolution 682
artiodactyl, circumnavigate, martinet, panjandrum
At the liquid levee held in honour of my bedraggled arrival, a court flunkey (a born martinet) stipulated that I must twice circumnavigate the pool before being presented to His Most Glorious Mud-Wallowing Panjandrum - who then proceeded to yawn largely while advising me that just as the Houyhnhnms despised the Yahoos, so his artiodactylic pod (a tribe calling itself the Qdrvllqndrrys) loathed the Houyhnhnms, for the very obvious reason that their pedal extremities were obnoxious, i.e., not evenly furcated.
