(Tough) Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 12/06/09

Psychiatry enables us to correct our faults by confessing our parent’s shortcomings.”   — Laurence Peter

(I was almost going to give up on this.  I was pretty certain from the onset that “k” was “s”, but entertained the idea of it being “e”.  The “bj” combination in “correct” had me thrown for a LONG time, especially considering “bnj” to be “the”, “are”, “not”, “for”, “who”, “why”, “how”, “art” and “act”.  Also, and I don’t know if every newspaper ran it this way but, the coded word for parents’ was split up into fp- on one line and jadlk’ on the next.  The toughest – overall – Sunday word games that I’ve ever come across!) —   YUR

(Tough) Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 12/06/09

Visual Description:  Old West politician addressing the town’s folk.

SMURTE  =  MUSTER,  GOUHNE  =  ENOUGH,  PRYNTA  =  PANTRY,  RIMMOE  =  MEMOIR,  GINMOH  =  HOMING,  FLUTAR  =  ARTFUL —   Giving us:  STEHPTOIHOMRFL

Clue/Question:  When the cowboys listened to the politician, they said he . . .

Answer:  SHOT FROM THE LIP

(I had some trouble getting “enough”, “homing” and “artful”.  And the answer had me stumped for quite a while.  I thought one of the words (the second) had to be “them”, and the first was either “lost” or “post”.  I had to go do the cryptoquote, and come back with a clear mind.  It probably would’ve helped if there were quotation marks for “lip”.) —   YUR
