Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 3181
augean, abnegate, factitious, woolgathering
Crotchberry was an extremely difficult, unpleasant, filthy (in a word, an "augean") man, given to woolgathering for days on end and then coming out with the most absurdly random and factitious remarks, like "Latvia is run by a sinister cabal of quail" or "I have a maitre'd in my trousers," as if he'd completely abnegated all pretense to sanity; but I liked him, because he had the second-largest collection of tungsten codpieces in Western Vermont.
