Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 1612
irenic, ness, insouciance, piquant
It was my aim to befriend, not to hunt them as have my predecessors on this promontory, but much as I strive to keep my irenic disposition, much as I try to interpret (sometimes, even to participate) in their discourse, I find nothing piquant or remotely stimulating in such obtuse squawking, nor can I respond with insouciance when I see how, with their excretory excesses, they mess the ness, blasted puffins!
