brigand, injured party

Now that Microsoft wants to buy Yahoo, tripling its share of the search ad share and vaulting to the top of the online display ad business, maybe it doesn’t look like such an injured party.


The morning came: it was a pleasant sight to behold Mr.
Tupman in full brigand's costume, with a very tight jacket,
sitting like a pincushion over his back and shoulders, the upper
portion of his legs incased in the velvet shorts, and the lower part
thereof swathed in the complicated bandages to which all
brigands are peculiarly attached.
