Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 4744
cachinnate, levant, occlusion, porpoise
The very drunk gentleman looked at his watch and abruptly tried to levant out of the bar to avoid paying his tab, but his trouser cuff caught on the nub of the brass foot rail, leaving him to porpoise up and down in a pantomime of escape, which caused the lady who had been seated on the stool next to his to cacchinate until she keeled over from an apparent occlusion of blood to her brain -- then even I erupted in giggles as it occurred to me that this all had transpired at the "stroke of midnight"!
