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:



. . . . . a bass chord was struck, as the door of Number 9 opened and Hank Javid appeared, then Duke Hunt on lead guitar; a drum roll and from Number 11 came Jock Goven on rhythm and a moving contraption complete with full drum kit and Fluff Mumble battering his drums and cymbals more Animal-like than even Animal; while from Number 10, the backing singers: Andrea Woesome, Amber Bead, Karen Broadley and Halfpenny Mordaunt started "doo-wop-a-doo-wop" behind her as Theresa picked out one mic and kicked the rest over, did a high kick that exceeded Angela Rippon's on Morecamb and Wise all those years ago and then, snapping her fingers she belted it out:
"well, I'm a walk-on girl,

and I walk my own line,

if I feel clement,

it's in my own time;

no need for a dunaker like sleazy Greave,

he doesn't want this country to leave,

no need for a Boris, in our House

when I've got my very own Micky Mouse,

there's a real done deal

for MPs to approve

and whatever you feel,

you better get in my groove;

we want you if you're young.

or even if you're old,

or Jerry and the Peaceniks,

will kill Brexit cold,

so Tuesday is the day,

to sort the sheep from the goats,

and we can turn away

all those migrant boats;

it's the very last chance

to keep Britain for the Brits,

and every vote counts

so long as it Brexits!


tonight the Super Trouper

(Sup-p-per Troup-p-per)

lights are gonna find me
Shining like the sun

(Sup-p-per Troup-p-per)
Smiling, having fun

(Sup-p-per Troup-p-per)
Feeling like I'm number one!"

and as the last notes faded and an entranced Press Corps watched like a mass of corpses, one voice rang out, that of Dan (Invisible Man McGann): "Prime Minister, does the End of The Pier Show show that you're about to leap before you've looked?" and Mrs Maybe-Maybenot shot him a withering look which on television screens the length and breadth of Britain looked like that of a dead woman walking into oblivion!
