Quandary Resolution 8174
Friday face, Woozle effect, exoteric, eiron, n.

Charged by his publisher with the task of making from the Greek an exoteric rendition, he at once assumed the cowed Friday face of a hungry petitioner, and with the quiet irony of a born eiron grieved that - pace the 'Woozle effect' notion that translation is a doddle -  it was altogether beyond his humble powers to render Homer's πολυφλοισβοιο as other than 'poluphloisboious', but that he was confident that from its littoral context the common reader would readily get the gist.
