Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 5414
yare, Silent Sam, endemic, punnet
Silent Sam, a case study in word-related nervous disorders, abruptly became logorrheic when the subject of anagrams came up: "Yes, you see I've inherited a rare condition called 'anagramania,' in which I compulsively generate anagrams like the words on that list in your hand... I come 'unpent' when I see 'punnet,' and I like my little 'pet nun'... but, of course fruit bowls have nothing to do with it... then too 'endemic' leaves me cold like 'iced men' (ha ha!) though I am bit unleashed, not really being endemic to any one place, always yare for a new word in the new 'year,' though some think me 'awry' (ha ha!) ....and even my name is an anagram of 'name lists,' but I do go on, don't I?"
