Bravo Mrs. Mills, bravo

In yet another display of astounding clarity and insight, Mrs. Mills once again manages to solve all problems with grace and dignity.

The question:

I have a large and mainly pleasant extended family, and we meet periodically at occasions throughout the year. At the last gathering, one member dominated the conversation as usual. At one point, she spoke continuously for 20 minutes — nobody could get a word in edgeways. How can I stop her from yabbering and give everyone else a chance to talk?

The answer:

Tie her to a chair and gag her. With so many others present, it shouldn’t be difficult to enlist help in holding her down, and it keeps children amused for hours.
