Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 5257
autochthonous, wife-beating question, teetotaler, phrenology

"Did you stop beating your wife before or after you started drinking?" (an improvement on the classic wife-beating question) , the clever prosecutor suggestively asked the teetotaling defendant on cross-examination, shrewdly judging by his phrenological profile that he lacked autochthonous restraint, and would explode on the stand, creating a negative impression with the jury.
