Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 3882
auscultate, dead tree edition, borborygmus, instauration

I was sitting in the library, leafing through the dead tree edition of Environmental Preservation News and contemplating an instauration of my lapsed subscription, when the gallon of hummingbird chili I'd consumed the previous evening reminded me of its existence by means of an enormous borborygmus, which went rumbling through my innards like a beleaguered steamboat; and everyone--I mean everyone, including the deaf guy--turned toward me with looks of alarmed disgust on their faces (one dude e'en suggested I have a doctor auscultate the problem, and since I had no idea what that word meant I stuck my tongue out at him; later I followed him home and egged his house).
