Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 2473
diktat, insurgent, declension, gimcrack
Brandishing his favorite gimcrack, a large wood spoon, the soup Nazi barked his orders and diktats at customers and I pondered from the back of the line whether I should start an insurgency and lead everyone to the falafel shop next door, an initiative which would have certainly resulted in a clear declension in his revenues.
