Quandary Resolution 8086
ecce, as ever trod shoe-leather, desuetude, Nowheresville, n.
The Grimsley Hoarbottom Advertising Agency's best days were in its past, for it had gone from being the most in-demand agency before World War II to being Nowheresville, falling into such a state of desuetude that the big clients no longer even recognized the firm's name, but all that changed when Archer Straightarrow was introduced to the company by old Mr. Grimsley, who announced: "Ecce! Before you stands the greatest ad-man ever to tread shoe leather."
