Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 1985
peccable, postiche, retrodict, debonair
Fin de siècle mores cautioned any gentleman aspiring to respectability against affixing a postiche upon his jowls, for if facial growth was not naturally abundant, peccable inbred unmanliness might well be retrodicted, and gaily debonair intercourse mistaken for the love that dare not speak its name.
