Quandary Resolution 2822
philtrum, psephology, palooka, Zeitgeist
It is not entirely clear what convinced in 1975 Mr. Bjorn Tobey Aboxer to pursue a career in boxing and some have speculated that it was the zeitgeist pervading the Thrilla in Manila match between Ali and Frazier, but our man proved to be singularly unsuited for the fighting, a complete palooka, busting his philtrum on his very first professional joust, an experience which led him to quickly change course, to abandon training and to immerse himself in psephology in preparation for a new career in politics.
