Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 3629
subsume, immolate, hebdomadal, catechize

Having consumed more than his quotidian allotment of peyote buttons, the Aardvark instructed us to subsume the existing categories under broader ones: "...for instance, self-immolation should go under ways to keep warm," he advised, "and hebdomadal under needlessly complicated variants of perfectly simple words;" he then proceeded to catechize us on the Norse colonization of North America, ere tumbling backward from the davenport with an alarmed cry and plunging heels-over-head into a comatose state, akin to hibernation; and when at last he awoke, he believed himself to be the second coming of Barney Rubble, and would not be gainsaid, persisting in this curious delusion for an entire fortnight.
