Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 1999
ex gratia, Demiurge, banausic, gest
The new caretaker-cum-general factotum had, of course, been taken on primarily for his attested, if limited banausic accomplishments - sweeping floors, cleaning washrooms, locking doors - and not for his unwelcome enterprise in posting up on the broom cupboard door 'I am the demiurge without whom you nonentities would all be wallowing in chaos', for which audacious initial gest he was promptly dismissed, and with no ex gratia munificence commensurate with such refreshing candour.
