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 days and nights of attempting to negotiate an agreement with the Balaclava-wearing rent-seeking Pasha of the DUP, Tangerine Foster, supported by the Grand Master of the Orange Order of Ulster had given Theresa Maybe-Maybenot the yips, as little Pipkin, her diminutive husband observed when he brought in her morning boiled egg and toast soldiers and saw her agitated demeanour as she expostulated with someone on the red-white-and-blue Prime Ministerial telephone: "an Orange walk along Downing Street on the 12th? absolutely, categorically, unequivocally, definitively not very likely to happen unless you can give me unqualified, cast-iron, positive indications of reasonable assurances to be forthcoming that this will be a one-off event and unlikely to be repeated more than once a year . . . . . and a band? flutes and drums? how many accompanying? oh, I see, and will they all require refreshments? well we could have trestle-tables on Horse Guards, yes, just across the way at the back, oh I'm sure it can accommodate several thousand, but I'll need to check with the Guards, oh, you have already? and they are okay about it? well, in that case, I can't think of any objections, certainly Grand Master, we'll look forward to it then, goodbye, Fuck the Pope!" and as she replaced the receiver, she gave such an involuntary shudder that Pipkin feared an epileptic seizure, and she turned, saw him and said: "the fucking Billy Boys have me over a barrel, Pip, those Balaclava-wearing cunts are going to shag me till I squeak! get me a triple Bushmills and make it snappy!"
