Theme : A chemist's discovery
(Double click any word to check its meaning)

Just because the chemist ACCLAIMED, it wont because his BERTH. It is not a CATHODE in his lab which he can DEFALCATE and take away. Being full of EGOISM is no FELONY but inspite of that calling yourself GENIAL, defenitely is. Though he was OBTRUSIVE he was not MALIGNANT  and never mistreated the NEEDY or UNDERLINGS. Nobody could accuse him of being VENAL or DEFAMATE him on corruption grounds. He was famous as he had discovered a tissue which was HEPTAGONAL in shape and could IMBIBE more water than other compounds. This compound can be used to effectively LAVE the watery places. The PAPACY had REASSSURED him that they would popularise his discovery and make it a part of CATHOLICISM to use it. They also told  him that there was no need for him to BESEECH for the same, as they could easily convince the WITLINGS who follow them.
