Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 1579
esker, jauntily, stolid, koan
After reading Personal Success Through Koans (a pseudo-inspirational Dogen ripoff) Larry's gone all profounder-than-thou: he's blossomed from your average post-collegiate office temp into a jaunty Zen-master-wannabe who seeks to enlighten his coworkers through riddles and paradoxical questions, to which we, stolid and unmoved, now respond with purely arbitrary answers like "esker," which is the shape of a stream that is not a stream, but which we've also offered as the sound of one hand clapping and the value of one divided by zero.
