Quandary Resolution 916
lincolnesque, hypernatremic, will-o'-the-wisp, salient
"Mother o' God! A will-o'-the-wisp!" cried Brother Matthias excitedly, spitting partially chewed manzanilla olives into his Lincolnesque beard, while his fellow Franciscans, already clinically hypernatremic from the enormous quantities of potato chips and beef jerky they had consumed before the first commercial break, stared mesmerized at the Discovery Channel special about ignis fatuus or, as they knew it all too well in their Dun Urlan marsh, "friar's lantern", all hoping anxiously for some salient fact that would help them rescue the Abbot from the the leprechauns.
