Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 3214
vituperation, swag, hendiadys, cosmogony
I'm the first to admit that when my astronomical observatory was looted last month, I unleashed a scathing tirade of vituperative curses (including, but by no means limited to, the hendiadys "sonofabitch and bastard and thieving friggin' slut!"); but what you have to understand is that among the swag the thief made away with was an ancient and priceless cosmogony, reputedly penned by none other than Mediocrates of Athens himself; and the loss of this rare text was a sore blow indeed.
