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

Jumble Spoiler – 10/16/14

Visual Description:  When teen terns turn.

PRICH  =  CHIRP,  BOREP  =  PROBE,  TURMET  =  MUTTER,  REUSAS  =  ASSURE   —   Giving us:  IRPPREUERSSE

Clue/Question:  The Santa Monica beach sea gull was experiencing – – -

Answer:  PIER PRESSURE

(The Total Jumble, folks!  Twelve letter answer.  Two brand new clue words, in “chirp” and “mutter”.  More work for ralis95 with his world famous clue word database!  And, all of the jumbles appear to be new.  The answer letter layout could have used a little tweaking, but it was alright.  The cartoon is hilarious.  And, so much detail!  One of the better Jumbles in a while.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 10/15/14

Visual Description:   Cranky card couple.

DARFU  =  FRAUD,  KAYLE  =  LEAKY,  VISLEW  =  SWIVEL,  MABCEE  =  BECAME   —   Giving us:  FRDLEWILBEA

Clue/Question:  After losing the game, the bridge partners – – -

Answer:  BID FAREWELL

(A great stinker of a pun!  I don’t know much about bridge, but I guess I know just enough to get this answer.  No new clue words, but all the jumbles appear to be new.  I mistook the V for a Y, in the third word, and initially wrote in WISELY.  But the ISY didn’t help make any sense with the other answer letters.  Caught my mistake and came back with the necessary WIL.  It took me a couple of looks to get “became” too.  The answer letter layout was another superlative jumble.  Very cryptic.  I guess Jeff might have spent some time with his parents, or grandparents, at some retirement community.  The cartoon works.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Deutsch: English:

Answer:  PAID TOP DOLLAR

(Beauty!  Nice pun.  No new clue word, but some great new jumbles.  Guess which word I had difficulty with?  That’s right, “decode”.  The other ones I got right away.  The answer letter layout was marvelously cryptic.  No giveaways.  The cartoon took us to new heights.  It was truly inspiring.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  DEGRADING

(This one was somewhat of a challenge!  It took me a while to see it.  No new clue words today, but all of the jumbles appear to be new.  I liked both “dismal” and “artery”.  The answer letter layout was fantastic.  At first, I thought the answer was going to end in ED, but then I thought better.  Great cartoon.  Leaky drooping ceiling, broken glass in the door, and even a mouse/rat hole.  Good stuff.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  There is nothing wrong with this Brooklyn school.  These pictures were the only pics that came up that weren’t “owned” by Getty.      YUR

Visual Description:  Preparing for the siege.

SUWENI  =  UNWISE,  GRULFA  =  FRUGAL,  WHRONT  =  THROWN,  INIDOE  =  IODINE,  PLUCTS  =  SCULPT, OLATAF  =  AFLOAT   —   Giving us:  EFRATHOIDSCTFLT

Clue/Question:  Building the moat around the castle was a – – -

English: Nunney Castle and moat

Answer:  LAST-DITCH EFFORT

(Beautiful!  No new clue words, but plenty of the jumbles were new to me.  I don’t care for UN words.  They’re cheap, and don’t belong, as far as I’m concerned.  I liked the jumblings of “frugal” and “afloat” the most.  The answer letter layout was a masterpiece today.  It gave away nothing.  Great drawing.  It looks like the king has employed Quasimoto to help the soldiers dig the moat.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
