Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 4846
parnassian, cloudburst, filial, pasquinade
The Berlin Wall painting of Brezhnev and Honecker kissing is a pasquinade, parodying the sometimes subservient and filial relationship of Germany to Russia during the Cold War in a parnassian method that is striking yet leaves many questions; how unpoetic and depressing that its destruction may be at the hands of a luxury development rather than a slow, natural deterioration through many a cloudburst or snowstorm or hot sun.
