I was in such dudgeon watching the perissodactyl sloth truckle to the nabob (in mufti) about the effects of the seiche and how that made him no longer worship the sea, that I fulminated at that apostate.

I upbraided Brickface for his precunious acquiescence to the foundling's bowdlerized anthromorphization -- what calumny that faberge putsch was, a truncheon in the face of apostate dudgeon, a fulmination from the nattering nabobs of sloth, truckling to the perissodactyl ruminants of the etheric lore of yesteryear, with their virtual seiche of slop in mufti.

How I hated them all, Brickface, the foundling, the nabobs, they were all jerks.
