Quandary Resolution 3414
prognathous, pesher, subterfuge, lucent

Rosencrantz of Guildenstern, the prognathous 14th century rabbi and Torah interpreter, was known for his exceptionally lucent peshers, being particularly famous for his radical interpretation of Leviticus ("turns out the whole thing's one hilarious running gag, from the first animal sacrifice to the last entrail"); but what not a lot of people know about Rosencrantz is that his "rabbi" persona was just a facade--a "front" or subterfuge, if you will, masking his true identity: that of a double agent, secretly in the employ of a radical group of Zoroastrian zealots called Thus Spake Zarathustra (a name later famously borrowed by both Friederich Nietzsche and Richard Strauss).
