Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 3049
hircine, passing, grotesque, handsel

My cousin Handsel a) bears a rather grotesque resemblance to a Guatemalan goat; 2) is passing lascivious; and d) smells like the dirty diaper of a Pakistani man; and therefore hircine is the perfect word to describe him, making this a rare instance of one man simultaneously embodying all three disparate meanings of a derogatory word, and perhaps a handsel of things to come.
