Quandary Resolution 716
Annie Oakley, contemptuously, raj, mondegreen
When my friend bragged about his ticket to the show, calling this lucky freebie an Annie Oakley, I thought he was telling me that a knee (of his) was OK, and when I asked what prompted him to give me this unsolicited orthopedic update, he responded to my mondegreen contemptuously, as if he were some panjandrum in the Raj, speaking to a supposedly inferior subject whose mother tongue was not the Queen's blessed English.
