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:


Insouciant and debonair/
He pours without the slightest care/
A jigger here, a jigger there/
Into the bullshot in his hand,/
The tosspot of our happy band.
(by mtc)


"No, not bulls_it, bullshot!" one tosspot bellowed to the other, tossing his pot high in the air while hanging from a jigger mast, trying his best to look debonair. (by mtc)


After a long, hard day working with that new jigger, I tend to lose my debonair manner rather quickly after a bullshot or three, and start acting like a tosspot who can’t hold his liquor.
