hotle = hotel ?

Please pass the genderoles, I'll take one with chocolate sauce. They're similar to profiteroles, no?

Right you are!

Yes, Melba, it's hotel. And you must be right about the genderoles. I thought perhaps the student was referring to French police, but they don't go as well with chocolate.

I got most of them but is pias meant to be bias or peace?  Hotle defeats me, and infatuous should be a word, but I wonder what the student meant, (if the student had any intention).
Or possibly pious?
Hotle = hostile? Hotel? Hottel, if it's Fedye's daughter.

"lagymtimley."

Yes. That really happened. It took me some time to figure out what the student meant.

King Author is, apparently, a great hero except for his strained relationship with Gweedo.

There is water all over my screen.

This, m_d, is destined to be a classic of upserdity.

Despite what George Lucas would have us believe, Gweedo *did not* shoot first.

Probably he borrowed a lot of money from Guido, and....

Okay, I'm guessing "Guinevere," but I'm not sure.  With whom else did King Arthur have a strained relationship?

Unfortunately, I think conjugate gives good advice.

Lancelot comes to mind, but "Gweedo" seems like a stretch for that one.
