Quandary Resolution 756
nucha, hoity-toitily, parsnip, ignoramus
Cynthia's Halloween costume revealed her as an ignoramus in the field of Japanese cosmetics -- she had completely ignored the nuchal makeup that is considered so important in her chosen tradition -- but when I informed her of the omission (speaking through my pastinaceous mask), she hoity-toitily dismissed my criticism, claiming that a true geisha would never deign to communicate with a parsnip.
