Quandary Resolution 3984
rendezvous, olympicene, tonsorial, incondite

One day before I was to defend my PhD dissertation in organic chemistry, I arranged a rendez-vous with a barber to shave in my beard a pattern in the form of an olympicene, my favorite hydrocarbon, but the tonsorial result was so incondite that the jury dismissed me as “apparently more interested in the exploits of Michael Phelps than in those of Nobel winning chemists Richard F. Heck, Ei-ichi Negishi and Akira Suzuki”.
