    Synthetic shouldn't be the problem. How many miles are on the car?

    oil on the plugs is usually due to a worn or blown piston ring. you might wanna get a local mechanic to look at it first. hopefully it's not that and something else.

    Alright that would be a one in a million shot that all piston rings are shot. OK here's my other suggestion... The valve seals are bad or on their way going out in that particular cylinder. I don't think excessive oil would cause that problem. Seals are cheap and pretty easy to fix. I hope it's that and nothing more serious.

    ^the only near to wet thing that should be on (the threads) or even around the plugs is anti-seize lubricant.
