Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?

Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


Although Simon fenced yarely, he was a peaceable fellow, and slow to suspect deceit – this is how his future ex-wife was able to drain his earnings on the purchase of ritzy decorations for a house that would one day become a marital golgotha.

The Golgotha Health Spa was hardly the ritzy upper crust establishment that its website promised - peaceable enough, I suppose, once you got to ignore the Praetorian guard, but I can tell you, after a weekend incarcerated next door to the Via Dolorosa Suite I left pretty damn yarely.

(by Et Seqq)


"Look, I told you, you've got the wrong guy: my name is Beezus Price, not Jesus Christ!" the man protested, as he was shoved yarely and none-too-gently up Golgotha toward a waiting cross--rather than the ritzy five-star Jerusalem hotel in which he'd booked a nice, peaceable vacation, and whose register would no doubt contain the vindicating proof of his name, if only these bastard Roman soldiers would deign to check.

"I could get used to living here, this isn't exactly like climbing Calvary with a large wooden cross, it isn't Golgotha", Anne-Marie said as we ambled yarely through the ritzy ballroom and other luxurious quarters of my palace on the Riviera, and she continued "it is the kind of place to make one peaceable and loving of all mankind", but I had already decided this would be our last encounter.
