Jumble Spoiler – 09/19/18

 

Visual Description:  Fighting our disposable mindset.

CHABE  =  BEACH,  GUYON  =  YOUNG,  ARYTRO  =  ROTARY,  SFOLYK  =  FOLKSY   —    Giving us:  BEOGRORFOK

Clue/Question:  The handyman spent so much on advertising because he wanted to – – –

Answer:  GO FOR BROKE

(I can hear some of the linguist purists out there, with their trepidations over the use of the word BROKE.  The guys are playing a little loose with their use of the word, but it’s all for the sake of the pun!  BROKE is a tense of BREAK, but it also means out of money.  Some will, incorrectly, say that some piece of machinery is BROKE, when they should be saying that it is BROKEN.  So, you can say that it BROKE, but not that it is BROKE.  Because, only an individual, or group/organization, can be out of money/broke.  Just one of the many reasons why English is such a difficult language.

We appear to have a brand new clue word today, in “folksy”.  It is not on my latest version of the ralis95 clue word database, so our man will surely update his world famous database accordingly.  All of the jumbles appear to be new as well.  None of them caused me to stumble.  The answer letter layout is a wonderful 10-letter jumble.  It was nicely cryptic, and I feel it gave nothing away.

Super cartoon!  It looks like the guy is repairing a weed-whacker trimmer, while the woman is working on something like an alarm clock.  Repairing things should be our first impulse.  Too many things are made difficult to repair these days, and the manufacturers encourage throwing things out, and just buying new ones.  But, whatever can be fixed should be fixed.  Our landfills are full of things that could have been repaired, and our landfills are filling up way too quickly!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  To all of our Jewish readers out there, I hope you have an easy fast.  Yom tov, my friends!   —   YUR

Metaphors have a way of holding the most truth in the least space.”   —   Orson Scott Card

(How can you NOT love this quote???  It’s a winner!  I was a little surprised to see that we’ve already had a quote from the gentleman.  The name did not ring a bell for me.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.”   —   Martin Luther King Jr.

(But, today we live in an age of specialization.  And manual/menial labor is looked down upon, by far too many.  In many ways we have lost our way.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Belated) Jumble Spoiler – 09/04/18

Visual Description:  The end of the affair.

TINFA  =  FAINT,  GYCEA  =  CAGEY,  CELDIS  =  SLICED,  GULONE  =  LOUNGE   —   Giving us:  FNTAGESLILON

Clue/Question:  The Frisbee golf course was closing.  The couple played to have – – –

Answer:  ONE LAST FLING

(Oh, oh, oh!  Let’s not forget our family values, guys!  LOL!  This made for a great, stinky pun.  At least this was an open-air affair.  That should be a little healthier.

All of the clue words were old favorites again.  However, all of the jumbles appear to be new.  I was a little uncertain with “cagey”, but I gave in to my reservations.  The answer letter layout was a great 12-letter jumble.  Not obvious at all.

Great cartoon, as always.  I think we had a Frisbee golf themed one a month, or so, ago.  It’s very popular out west.  I saw some courses when I was in Colorado.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Belated) Jumble Spoiler – 09/03/18

Visual Description:  Delaying the golden spike.

OZAKO  =  KAZOO,  LNIBK  =  BLINK,  TRUCCH  =  CRUTCH,  PLWARS  =  SPRAWL   —   Giving us:  KAOBNKCTCRA

Clue/Question:  Construction of the railroad would fall behind schedule if they didn’t get – – –

Answer:  BACK ON TRACK

(Great Jumble, good pun.  None of the clue words were new.  But, three of the jumbles came up as new, with only “ozako” having definitely been used before.  I was able to see all the clue words right away.  The answer letter layout was a nice 11-letter jumble, that I don’t think gave anything away. 

The cartoon looks to be late 19th Century.  The heyday of the locomotives!  Without the trains, I think it would have taken much longer for the – mainly white – “settlers” to settle the West.  They resulted in a lot of dead bison, and a lot of dead Native Americans.  But, certain people made a lot of money, and now we are where we are.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

None of my patients are hypochondriacs, but you should see some of their owners.”   —   Anonymous Veterinarian

(Very funny, because it is very true.  I think some of these owners have a version of Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy.  They get the desired attention by being the caregiver of someone/thing that is chronically “sick”, to the extent that they make up various illnesses for them, and even do things to cause them to become ill.  The disorder has been known to kill children, and pets.  The human race.  What a species!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
