Quandary Resolution 7473
straiten, gelbstoff, fustigate, adventus Saxonum, n.
Ah, #Adventus-Saxonum, when invasions were the norm!
But Saxons didn't wear bearskins, and Vikings didn't have horns.
But they liked a good #fustigation, as did any robber band,
And made sure folk were straitened if the villagers got out of hand
But they turned the water yellow with their unhygienic habits
And thus created #gelbstoff with a lake that's full of maggots.
