Visual Description: Quasi-historic product placement puzzle.
KHSUY = HUSKY, GIGNA = AGING, WSROYD = DROWSY, BRBEOR = ROBBER — Giving us: SYAGDOOER
Clue/Question: Founded in 1898, Frank Seiberling‘s tire and rubber company has had many . . .
Answer: GOOD YEARS
(Oh, look! They’re wearing Brooks Brothers suits! And, isn’t that a Waterman pen the taller gentleman is holding? LOL! I kid, because . . . I can! I wonder how many might have written down KUSHY instead of HUSKY? I did think it, but I caught myself. You get the S and Y either way, but of course you’d be mistaking CUSHY. Great scrambling, and great answer letter layout. I guess if you didn’t happen to notice the tire below the portrait – kind of the elephant in the room – you could always have Googled the name Frank, or Charles, Seiberling to figure out the answer. Maybe something some of our non-American readers might have needed to do? Unclerave’s Wordy Weblog has an international following, you know?!?! Something a little different for a Monday morning. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
