Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 2098
ventifact, ascribe, bogus, brazen
Geologists once ascribed the bosom-like curves of the famous Maiden Rock to the polishing effect of wind and sand over millions of years, but that theory, despite the numerous geophysical simulations undertaken in its support, has been revealed as bogus, and we now know that the most stunning granite formation in the Mojave desert was hand-chiseled by a brazen sculptor who thought he could fool the scientific community and pass off his own work as a natural ventifact.
