Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 1295
McKenzie, sans, callithump, threnody
My dear McKenzie friend, however well-intentioned may have been your heartfelt threnody in court this morning, I had hoped only for your hushed advice, and in tearfully volunteering that I was altogether a lost cause, sans alibi, sans remorse, sans everything but the dubious honour of being the prime mover of an impromptu callithum - a disorderly, cacophonous callithump that went rollicking drunkenly about the judges' lodgings in the small hours - you scuppered any chance I had of escaping a monstrous fine for disturbance of His Lordship's peace.
