Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 2280
captious, quacksalver, lobscouse, dharna
The stinking mess of lobscouse served at last dog watch gave Mr. Christian and his mates gippy tummy, with only their quacksalver of a captain pretending that such rotten meat kept scurvy at bay; and although Bligh was soon doorstepped with a mutinous hunger strike, this concerted dharna failed to persuade him that the complaint was not captious, and indeed vexatious.
