Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 7676
trombenik, chatelaine, occlusion, likembe, n.

Now, I know that you have formed an opinion of Peadar Mooney: a scurrilous, garrulous windbag who doesn't do a day's work if he can help it but, yet, is possessed of a remarkable agility of body and mind should the occasion require – though it must be admitted that Mrs Mooney, chatelaine and matriarch of the Mooney Household and assorted dependencies wouldn't recognise the 'remarkable agility' one little bit; but hey, what stayed his left foot before it could score that goal with Martin Elginbrod's rather bashed head? it was the occlusion of his windpipe caused by an unseen hand, the materialising from the night-time gloom of several potential witnesses, and more forcibly even than those factors, another hand using his right ear as if it were the tongue on an African likembe, the entire effect being to produce a strangulated and plaintive: "yeeeow, vaaat eeee fooooock d'yeeeese vaaaaant?"
