Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 1829
bubble wand, fishmonger, caucus, fossick
'My Billingsgate informant reports, sir, that at the caucus of street-traders convened shortly before sunrise a fishmonger swore that you had asked a young lady selling knick-knacks at a nearby stall for a 'blow-job', at which she not unnaturally took fright; and that your impromptu charade of removing your monocle and pouting through it did not sufficiently clarify to her that you were actually intent (as you say) only upon purchasing a child's bubble wand; so I would advise, sir, that in future if you remain intent upon fossicking among the poor for oral entertainment you might patronise the ambulant denizens of Covent Garden, who, I find, are for a small consideration quite willing to oblige.'
