Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 1570
spleenful, fidget, eminently, fantod
Eminently unsuited to a viva voce, Jenkins fidgeted constantly, muttering and fumbling his way through a half-hearted defence of his thesis, and then - unwisely looking up - caught the spleenful eye of his external examiner, whereupon he immediately prostrated himself and begged for clemency - all in all, a fine textbook example of the screaming fantods at full throttle.
