Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 2658
entrepot, infelicitous, conventicle, métier
Whether you can call mortgage underwriting a métier at par with, say, medicine or engineering is a matter of conjecture, but what is not conjecture is that the underwriters from Supremo Subprimo were caught red-handed at a noxious conventicle of bankers, rating agencies and mortgage companies and the unfelicitous result is that they are now personally bankrupt and working at the local entrepots hauling pallets and boxes.
