Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 3490
fagin, avant-garde, gambol, idoneous

That disreputable fagin Rappaport is trying to represent himself as "avant-garde" because he "takes kids that are wasting their time gamboling and frolicking in meadows and puts them to work plying a useful, productive trade"; but filching "Alf" dolls and hawkin' 'em on the black market at three, four times their value is hardly idoneous work for a child of two-and-a-half, Your Lordship.
