Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 1296
McKenzie, sans, callithump, threnody
I brought the McKenzie Family Band along for support and advice, not entirely trusting that my lawyer was sufficiently knowledgeable about folk instruments to persuade the Board of Commissioners to overlook my contribution to the Township's annual Memorial Day Parade and Callithump - during which I had interrupted the bagpipers' "Threnody for Fallen Soldiers" by banging together two metal garbage cans (sans actual garbage) - and to vote that my action was not any more criminal than "The Marine Corps Hymn" memorably rendered by Mrs. Powell's fourth grade class on washboards, thumb pianos, and musical spoons.
