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:


I cannot but horripilate
When daily I descry
The wegotist who, in debate,
Says "we" instead of "I".
One numptie's letter to the Press
Diwali did discuss:
"We think this festival is crass
And so do the rest of us."
(by OldRawgabbit)


Dear Editor,

why, oh why, does one descry such wegotism in the Public Prints, which give one such an outbreak of horripilate, implying as they do that your readers are all Hindus and therefore interested in Diwali when in fact the vast majority are members of the Church of England and couldn't give a Hoot about Heathen Festivals whose proper place is the Sub-Continent and one trusts that in future you will restrict your Calendar to proper and fit Anglican Festivals such as Lent, Michaelmas and Advent,

and I remain your Humble Correspondent,

Disgusted of Tunbridge Wells!
