So the new national budget subtitle should be: "A Fristful of Dollars" ?
For some reason, I thought you were putting coquinas in a story with an attifet, but then upon checking back I see the word was akilter. I was going to protest mightily that an attifet does not belong in any way shape or form with coquinas. And I stand by that assertion, because I know I'm right. But what's "akilter"? Kilter is "in good order," the prefix a- = not, so therefore it's not in good order. Dictionary.com hates it. A search of vivisimo.com gave me these clustered results:
akilter (138)
+ Picture (13)
+ House (13)
+ Reviews (11)
+ Slightly akilter (10)
+ Books (7)
+ Art (9)
+ Poem (6)
+ Strange (6)
+ Angles (6)
+ Mac, Rave Akilter (5)
Interesting, no?

But don't put the attifet with the coquinas.
One could eat coquinas *in* an attifet, I suppose. The eater, not the coquinas. In the attifet, that is.

Word doesn't know attifet, either.
You could put coquinas in an attifet, if an attifet were to be on the west coast. Unlikely, except in a recreation environment melding bad Marian fashions with Californicus cuisine. Oh, wait, that sounds just like a renaissance faire.

You could wear an attifet and eat coquinas, except that thou wouldst be call'd a bawd for doin' so.

"Akilter" is almost like a redneck dictionary word:
"Yah, she done spit on mah truck, so akilter and then a jury done sent me to prison!"
EEE! Arrogant Worms!

oh yeah. ALL about the wolfhounds.
Dogs are good.

And when you have time and room for one, there will be one who needs you.
