Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 1251
Morton's fork, windmill, gravamen, tipple
As the lawyer weighed the arguments that might anchor his frivolous case, each gravamen seemed equally bogus to him, and when he accessed the tipple in his emergency flask, these losing alternatives -- the prongs of a Morton's fork -- only grew more numerous, and started to spin in his mind, and kept spinning until he cried, for now he recognized himself as a spiritless Quixote, charging a windmill just because he was getting paid.
