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:


It's Pi Day where the numbers are reversed;
Everywhere else it's Wednesday.
And I, after my four words are well-versed,
To the sawbones I will wend my way
The mobile to their tasks are all dispersed 
While docs invigilate my short-term stay
(by OldRawgabbit)


On Pi Day it was my sorry duty to invigilate the mobile of would-be sawbones hacking and bludgeoning their way through the remains of the recently deceased and it reminded me that any fool can commit a murder but it takes an artist to commit a good natural death - and there were no artists in this years crop of butchers - so I was inclined to fail them all, but over a late dinner in the two Professor Sir Clement Danes' room I was persuaded to pass two or three for, after all, a blanket failure would not reflect well on the calibre of their teachers: "maybe you should sack all of them as well!" was my rejoinder, but alas! the deed is done, God Save Us All!
