Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 4119
ramify, lampoon, hypothecate, privity

At first it seemed harsh how the host lampooned the keynote speaker's style, introducing him with a stream of abstract hypothecations that seemed to be searching through all possible answers to some unstated question, the lines of reason ramifying so fast as to form a great thicket of impenetrability, but I later learned that the plans to utter this satirical preface had been made with the keynote speaker's privity in a shared effort to bring some comic relief to the philosophy symposium.
