Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 2706
usquebaugh, moliminous, biophilia, undertone
Whether it was just my moliminous workload (I'm working on rearranging Stonehenge), or the reek of usquebaugh on Bairrfhionn's breath, or something else altogether, it seemed to me that when he spoke the words, "Well, certainly, I'm a biophiliac: but you say that like it's a bad thing," I perceived a faint undertone of mockery in his voice; and if my foot abruptly shot out of its own volition and caught the award-winning vintner in the yarbles, well, all I can say is that I'm sorry, and it will never happen again.
