Sentence: Basil Fawlty is a faultypowers. He faultypowers his hotel guests for expecting too much from him, like sunny weather and decent food. He faultypowers his wife Sybil, his little nest of vipers, for his cynical world view, due to his prison camp of a marriage (she being the warden, of course and he the lifer). And mainly he faultypowers Manuel, his dogsbody, on everything and anything else that clouds his day, just because Manuel is from Barcelona and can never understand enough English to know he is to blame. In his own mind, nothing is ever Basil's fault. Luckily he has Sybil to constantly remind him that he is wrong about that, too!
