Quandary Resolution 3585
shambolic, normothermic, quietus, esculent

John Smith was a man as nondescript as his name, and the antipode of the circus performers for whom he worked as their bookkeeper, each day quibbling over the smallest expenditure on greasepaint and custard pies in his efforts to bring order to the circus's shambolic accounts system; but he had an ace up his sleeve: on his days off he would fulfill his secret fantasies by performing as "Coco the Stripping Clown" to wildly  cheering and shrieking audiences of elderly ladies from the local nursing home, who would show their appreciation by tossing their thermal vests onto the stage, and who would pay him extra to keep his underwear on.
