Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 3356
réchauffé, monition, bemuse, procrustean

 

The general sat back in his chair and puffed on his contraband cigar, bemused by the thought that a monition against corporal punishment by the new parliament could transform the long-held procrustean training practices of a military molded by years of dictatorship into the more benevolent ones of a new democracy, rather than allow a mere réchauffé of old policies with new names.
