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:


 "Llewellyn ap-Helion may well be considered reasonably couth, as couthness goes, which is a far cry from the Scotch term couthy, with an altogether different meaning, you suppose, and you would be right enough, but he's not at all American, in any way, shape or form, which you can spot readily enough by the cut of his jib, if you follow my drift," as the speaker's eyes drifted towards the bar, where our waiter, who was not exclusively ours, was collecting drinks for another table, but Razz McTazz is not a patient man, so he snapped his fingers and called out, "chop-chop, that man, the one in the yellow pants, don't forget us!" at which the waiter's head turned and his eyes caught mine and he mouthed the words, "as if I could!" before picking up his tray and carrying it over to a table by the window where two blondes sat, comparing their Covid tans, during which journey McTazz's eyes never left the young man's buns and I wondered why he was wasting his time with me when he had other irons he would like to put in the fire.
