Quandary Resolution 7545
paragnosis, bluff out, acolyte, cabbage, n.3

"Paragnosis it may well be," said Lord Samarkand and Lady Boyars-Romanov concurred, citing the case of MacWhirter v Campbell-Bannerman in which Cabbage, however it may have been obtained and especially when it was surplus to requirements and otherwise only heading for the waste-bins and thence to the Dump, could not be regarded as stolen property as it had already been rendered unwanted by the Plaintiff who, in the opinion of Learned Counsel, relinquished any title from that point; "but he might try to bluff it out," chipped in Felix Rosenstiel, "if he regards his Cutter as no longer an acolyte – having gained all of his knowledge and skills from his Master – but rather a potential competitor and therefore a threat to his own livelihood," and having spoken, Felix closed his eyes and waited to see what effect his words might have and it was Dixie O'Hooligan who said what all were thinking and with such conviction that Felix conceded the point – abstruse though it may have been – as blether!
