Quandary Resolution 7912
vamp, BANANA, disbursement, ailurophobia, n.
Gillian Sparkworthy, who suffered from a severe form of ailurophobia, was horrified to learn that a cat shelter was to be built next door to her house, but no attempt to change the mind of the official in charge of choosing the site worked, neither reasoning with him nor vamping him nor bribing him nor even threatening him, because--he said--he was tired of BANANAs like her who wanted things built in someone else's neighborhood, and so he requested the city to proceed with the disbursement of funds necessary to buy the property.
