Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 305
cap-a-pie, claptrap, macédoine, martinet
I'm no linguistic martinet, and can tolerate a jargon or two, but the Senior Vice President's mac├ędoine of state-of-the-art synergies, value-added bottlenecks and other scalable inanities during today's team-building session inspired me to think outside the box, specifically to "reach out" and try boxing the speaker cap-a-pie, and when my bare fist missed the moving target (despite some very promising positive momentum), I redrew my roadmap and pursued a new aggressive strategy of leveraging a folded annual report to clap the trap that blathered such insufferable claptrap.
