Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 276
nettle, plicate, pittance, germane
Don't assume you can placate your poor teacher just by plicating your brow and appearing studious: he performs his daily penance for a pittance, and no matter how furrowed your forehead, it nettles him when you noodle around, making points that aren't germane, Jermaine.
