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:


"Oh, we'll divvy up the boiling frog,

Poke it in the belly, feed it to the dog,

Make an armisonous clatter with the Herald's staff,



Ifuceus you'll get a good laugh!"

still strumming his ukelele and giving Hermione Brown a look that would have turned milk, presumably because either he thought that was how a Folk Singer would behave, or it was the way he behaved all the time himself anyway, but Mrs Brown was having none of it, pointedly turning her back on him and studying the Sunday bus timetable which was pasted on the wall alongside the closed Tickets & Enquiries window.
