Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 4986
mumpsimus, scuppernong, aghast, muster
Despite the name, my stubborn friend stuck to his mumpsimus that the scuppernong grape from the deep South was the one with which they make Muscat in Europe; I was aghast that he could muster the gall to harbor his delusion even after I showed him a bottle of Muscat indicating the grape's history in Europe and probable origin in the Middle East.
