I lighted upon a sentence in the New York Times:
Actually almost any tidbit — notably pigs in blankets — that the bar sends my way will satisfy.
This usage of satisfy strikes me as uncommon, if not jarring, as the verb satisfy almost always occurs as a transitive verb. I have just checked all the major online dictionaries. The Oxford Dictionaries Online explicitly says it should be used "with object", while some others have "intransitive verb" listed but no example sentences. I can't seem to find one instance in contemporary texts that uses satisfy intransitively.
So is this usage archaic? Or has it never been a common/widely accepted usage? What is the currency of this usage?
