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:


"Let us all stay Unfettered, for Nuptials," I say,

"Are Carcinogenic Chains that Bind,

The Deaf, the Dumb, the Halt and Blind,

The Weak in Body, Head and Mind,

Like Lambs who gambol on plovery hills,

Their Lives are spent in paying bills,

So let us stay Unfettered, Cast our Chains into the Bin,

And Devote ourselves to Pleasure, Dear, come and live in Sin!"

(by MissTeriWoman)


Let no one light a ciggy
[Carcinogenic as they are]
Let's keep Meghan and Harry
From that foul polluted air.
Let gladness be unfettered
Let their nuptials be sublime
And then we'll spend the evening
On the plovery hillside.
