Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 3834
enjoin, sexton, lookism, histrionics

As the abbot of the monastery, I sternly enjoined the sexton, Mr. Renfield, to guard himself against the temptation to indulge in "lookism" with regard to the bodies he was burying, i.e. not to provide nicer burial conditions for the more attractive corpses; in response to which the friggin' gravedigger flies way off the handle, going into the wildest and most embarrassing histrionics, vociferously insisting he would ne'er in a dozen years do such a vile thing--and as he's yammering away the sun sets, and (I shit you not, Your Eminence) the soil of one of the graves in the graveyard behind him suddenly bursts open, and a moldering head pops out and looks around for a moment, and when it sees me it quickly ducks back under the earth again.
