Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 7941
philippize, gurrier, insuperable, ettle, v.

PS: we took a break from considering Daphne and Maude's unexpected findings in Register House, to watch the BBC 'Debate' between the Five Guys Named Moe who want to be our next Prime Minister: sitting on bar stools and dressed almost identically, there was Big Fat Moe, Long Legs Moe, Four-eyed Moe, Brother Moe and look at Mister, look at Mister, Look at Mister Mojo Moe! we really did expect them to start singing hits from their long-gone Boy Band days, but instead there was the usual philippizing, gurrier asides, shouting each other down, challenges to step outside and settle insuperable differences with a punch up the bracket and the expected ettle for the Tory Backwoods to think of the good of the country instead of their own self-interest – some hopes! by the time you read this, they'll be down to a Quartet, but Jonathan Freedland in the Guardian this morning wrote of the 'terrifying truth: one of these men will be PM!'
