Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 05/10/09

Sunday Jumble Spoiler 05/10/09

Visual Description:  Classic unlucky gambler, down to his last chips.

ROOLIE  =  ORIOLE,  SOUTID  =  STUDIO,  PHILSO  =  POLISH,  WHYTOR  =  WORTHY,  REESHA  =  HEARSE,  GROUME  =  MORGUE —   Giving us:  RLSIOSOTYHRUE

Clue/Question:  Wearing a tie to a fancy casino doesn’t mean you won’t do this.

Answer:  LOSE YOUR SHIRT

HEARSE and MORGUE were two difficult (and downer) words to get.  I had to resort to answering the Jumble first (pretty obvious, guys!), and then backing into the two words with the letters that I knew I needed.  STUDIO, POLISH and WORTHY weren’t as automatic, for me, as ORIOLE was.  All in all a pretty decent Jumble.  I was kind of hoping for some kind of Mother’s Day tie-in though! —   YUR
