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:


The Bishop of Goole is a Hoot,

With entoptic visions to Boot,

A gamergate Queen,

Whose vagaries mean,

That his Chaplain's a ninnyhammer Fruit,


(by MissTeriWoman)


The ninnyhammer dreamed all day and his dreams were as free floating and chimerical as his entoptic visions (to the enjoyment of which he dedicated hours);  in his dreams he was no insect thrown about by the vagaries of life but rather he would - once the ailing patriarchs of his family died - rise to be the richest and most powerful man in the country by way of inheritance and influence,  not unlike some gamergate metamorphosing and taking  over the hive once the Queen Bee died.
