Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 3187
gambrinous, wherenot, obsequious, weltschmerz

'Officer, I entirely refute the formal charge of 'drunk and disorderly', for when you chanced upon me in a condition of gambrinous self-loathing at the corner of Puke Alley, Slop Street, or wherenot, did I not supply the cowed obsequiousness befitting converse with an upright lawmonger?; and if, while yet recumbent, bemoaning my sorry lot, I fell into a somewhat lachrimose Weltschmerz, is that slough of despond not grounds for your compassion, for some fellow-feeling, and for at worst a discreet, wholly unemphatic caution?'
