Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?

Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


Joe Goebbels was only a waggish lad,

Objurgate but not, never, really, so bad;

When he said "pip pip," or "chop chop." or "scram,"

Or threatened to turn you, into Strawberry Jam,

It was only a touch of his old flim-flam;

But your ignominious end,

Was just around the bend,

At the place where he would send

You to die the death of a thousand cuts and that was what you really should fear when he put his arms around your shoulders and hugged you close and swore to be "Brothers in Arms till the Bitter End,"
