Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 2977
micawber, velleity, supposititious, haw

The television show MicAwber follows the supposititious adventures of Vance MicAwber, an action hero so clever and inventive, he can build a spaceship out of a piece of twine, two raisins and a bottlecap (he is also an eternal optimist--hence the name micawber); the only problem is that Vance functions at the level of velleity, with very little ambition or desire to make anything happen; and therefore he is as likely to hem and haw over a given problem as he is to contrive some means of solving it (plus he has a glue-sniffing addiction, which to me is one of the more fascinating sub-plots).
