Deep Thought

Has anything other than tones ever been dulcet?

Earlier today I was thinking something similar, namely has anything other than a paperback been a tour-de-force?

I was about to tweet that very question before reality intruded and reminded me that it was too stupid - even for twitter.

But then you posted this puzzler, so I figure I might as well post mine.

Thank you for letting me know my deep thoughts are too stupid even for Twitter.

Voices are often dulcet.

ok, if we're stooping this low, what's the only adjective in English that follows the noun?

"galore"

As in dulcet tones galore, but never galore dulcet tones.
