The poseur aped the manners of the lummox to impress the dilettante, whilst the wastrel and the roue looked on with barely concealed smirks and titillation.

Yes it is fun and well done, but I could not do any as good or any better, as proposed in the other thread. The idea is nice though to make it a weekly thing perhaps?

A recalcitrant roue, ignoring the distractions of the flummoxed lummox, played the part of a pontificating, pedantic poseur while waylaying the wealthy, hammered wastrel who was arguing with the equally dipsomaniacal dilettante.

The promethean artist carved a junoesque figure in marble with seemingly dionysian abandon, guided invisibly by that supreme palladium, an apollonian mastery of technique.

Dionysian and Apollonian are used in cultural anthropology to refer to people who, respectively, do or don't use psychotropic substances in their religious practice.

This is my entry smile

In a prometean move yesterday, an appollaoian Tennessee man's dionysian bid of $122.03, won him a junoesque treasure, when the safe he bought on eBay was opened without palladium to revel an astonishing $26,000.

I tried a fusion of modern story and ancient words...does it work?
