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:


And now, here, outside

the picketed Luncheonette,

the littlest Meece

Pixie was pie-eyed

as the accusations


Lollobello mounted,

Simon inveighing against

her, though, in truth, he knew

nothing, other than he had wakened

her with a kiss, but what had

made her turn Aunt Tom

against her

fellow workers, or

steal from her best

friend? it was just a

meaningless calligram in an

old dead empty Universe
