Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 10/19/14

Visual Description:  An all-time great sitcom!

HILCNF  =  FLINCH,  CNITEE  =  ENTICE,  CREADA  =  ARCADE,  LAWESE  =  WEASEL,  GRECAH  =  CHARGE,  BRYDIH  =  HYBRID   —   Giving us:  FHETARAESREHRI

Clue/Question:  When Louie passed out checks to the drivers on “Taxi“,  he was giving everyone – – -

Answer:  THEIR FARE SHARE

(Excellent!  No new clue words, but some new jumbles.  The only one I really struggled some with was “arcade”.  The answer letter layout was a beautiful jumble.  The cartoon is priceless.  You can clearly make out Nardo, Reverend Jim, Louie and Banta.  The central character has got to be Alex.  Although it could possibly be Latka.  Definitely no Wheeler here.  That show had everything.  Everyone was so surprised that ABC discontinued it, essentially at it’s height of popularity and critical acclaim.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 10/24/14

Visual Description:  No one can beat Father Time.  No one.

THACC  =  CATCH,  DRABN  =  BRAND,  THIREM  =  HERMIT,  BLAMEG  =  GAMBLE   —   Giving us:  CTHANDHEITGAE

Clue/Question:  When he beat the Grim Reaper in the poker game, he was – – -

Answer:  CHEATING DEATH

(Things live, and things die . . . anon.  But, only time marches on and on . . . and on.  A nice long, 13-letter answer!  Wow.  That’s like a Sunday Jumble answer.  I’ll try to post this post Sunday’s Jumble spoiler this evening.  I don’t have access to my ralis95 clue word database, but I’d venture to say that all of today’s clue words are old favorites.  New jumbles for all but “hermit”.  The answer letter layout was another fine jumble.  I don’t think it gave anything away.  Very clever cartoon, and concept.  I wonder how many dealers those two have gone through???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 10/23/14

Visual Description:  The try . . . at DIY.

HATSS  =  STASH,  BALFE  =  FABLE,  STARPY  =  PASTRY,  TRUEPT  =  PUTTER   —   Giving us:  SSBEPTYPTE

Clue/Question:  He wanted to follow the instructions for installing the new staircase – – -

Answer:  STEP BY STEP

(Worked for me!  Perhaps a little predictable, but we got a good stinky pun out of it.  ralis95 beat me to the punch today!  He’s correct though.  We do have a new clue word – No. 3000 – in “putter”.  Mr. Hoyt reached a real milestone . . . a nice round number too, with today’s newest clue word.  He also gave us all new jumbles once again.  A really spiffy answer letter layout as well.  Nothing given away there.  If you didn’t figure this out by the great cartoon’s set up, then the the answer letter layout could have helped . . . to keep you in the dark.  Building things yourself can be a lot of fun, as long as you can understand the instructions.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 10/22/14

Visual Description:  When being down to earth ain’t a good thing.

KEBAL  =  BLEAK,  SUDEO  =  DOUSE,  BUDOLE  =  DOUBLE,  FATEXI  =  FIXATE   —   Giving us:  EADEDLFT

Clue/Question:  After losing the hot air balloon race, the team was – – -

Answer:  DEFLATED

(Very nice!  We have a new clue word in “fixate”.  And, it looks like all of the jumbles are new.  Fine job with the answer letter layout.  And, a top notch cartoon. Some day I’d like to go up in a hot air balloon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 10/18/14

Visual Description:  Pre-air sickness.

ATULF  =  FAULT,  TINNH  =  NINTH,  GITHEW  =  WEIGHT,  MDAISY  =  DISMAY   —   Giving us:  FLTNNWEGIY

Clue/Question:  When the plane hit turbulence, everything – – -

Answer:  WENT FLYING

(Pretty good.  No new clue words, but all the jumbles seem new.  Great job with the answer letter layout.  And, a great cartoon.  Drinks and laptops flying.  Overhead compartments popping open.  And, folks losing it!  Lots of fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 10/21/14

Visual Description:  Shrew, pushing her luck.

SIMUN  =  MINUS,  CITHH  =  HITCH,  LUTFIE  =  FUTILE,  HERDIN  =  HINDER   —   Giving us:  MINHTFTEIDE

Clue/Question:  He needed to look for the missing watch, but he couldn’t – – -

Answer:  FIND THE TIME

(Very nice.  Kind of an old joke though.  No new clue words, but all the jumbles appear to be new.  No, Wimpy!  That wasn’t Flutie.  It was “futile”.  The answer letter layout was actually very good.  If you were slow to pick up on the gag the answer letter layout might have held you back some.  Nice cartoon.  Which reminds me . . . I have to cut the grass . . . and leaves.  And, trim some bushes, before the weather really turns.  Be well and do good, friends.  I’ll try to post the missing spoilers in the next few days.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 10/17/14

Sorry, guys!  Got called out of town.  This weekend’s spoilers are going to be late, like this one.

Visual Description:  Our favorite cartoon artist, and his lovely family.

NURKT  =  TRUNK,  SERDS  =  DRESS,  KHANES  =  SHAKEN,  EEMCOB  =  BECOME   —   Giving us:  TRURSSSHKBOE

Clue/Question:  To paint the swimmers, the artist used – – -

Answer:  BRUSH STROKES

(As good if not even better than Thursday’s Jumble!  I don’t have access to my ralis95 clue word database, but I think these clue words are all old favorites.  The answer letter layout is fantastic!  I love a nice long answer.  They are almost always a little more challenging.  The cartoon is great, because it is partly chronicling our buddy Jeff’s family life.  I hope Cam won!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
