Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/09/09

Bravery is the capacity to perform properly even when scared half to death.”   — Gen. Omar N. Bradley

Sneaky Jumble Spoiler – 11/09/09

Visual Description:  One bar buddy telling the other how he almost got married. (twice)

ZAUER  =  AZURE,  VUEMA  =  MAUVE,  EXFLAN  =  FLAXEN,  CORLLS  =  SCROLL   —   Giving us:  RMAENSR

Clue/Question:  The bachelor described his broken engagements as . . .

Answer:  NEAR MRS.

(I was ALMOST going to put this one up for you guys to give me the answer.  I was ready to guess “MANS ERR”, but without an apostrophe I knew that wasn’t right.  When you assume that each of the words need to have one of the available vowels it definitely makes it a head scratcher.  I guess part of the clue to the answer lies in the guy saying: “I said I wasn’t ready to both”.  Both what?  To love and to honor?  To have and to hold?  In sickness and in health?  Something from the wedding vows, I suppose, but I can’t see it being some things specific.  Only when I gave up on idea that both words had to have a vowel is when I was finally able to figure it out.  In this case, the word “MRS.” definitely should have quotation marks in the puzzle!  – – – There are some visual clues to near misses, as with the dart board and the TV screen showing a filed goal attempt – which looks good, to me – but they are pretty subtle.) —   YUR

(The extra “s” helps it to make more sense.  Thanks, for pointing it out to me, guys!  But, there still shoulda been quotation marks for “MRS.”!  Right?) —   YUR
