Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 3204
picaresque, microcosm, Cockaigne, jaundiced

If I appear to take a jaundiced view of the hero's picaresque adventures as a carefree vagabond strolling through a picture-book Cockaigne of milk and honey, it is because this sunny microcosm bears no relation whatsoever to the harsh realities of job-seeking amidst northern industrial dereliction.
