Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 2406
fluke, gravlax, mayhem, libation
I told this bistro troll that I'd ordered salmon gravlax, real gravadlax, and would have asked for broiled fillet of fluke if I'd wanted fluke but I wanted nordic gravlax; at which point he suddenly lost it and started causing mayhem, running amok in the kitchens and returning with bottle brandished to douse me liberally with a libation of vodka (when actually I'd ordered a nice Riesling to go with the gravlax).
