Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 01/31/10

Second violins can play a concerto perfectly if they’re in their own home and nobody’s there.”   — Garrison Keillor

(Sooooo . . . he’s saying it takes a certain kind of confidence to be the best in one’s field???  Maybe it’s just me but, Mr. Keillor seems to have a knack for leaving a lot of people – even other liberals, like me – a little put out.) YUR

Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 01/31/10

Visual Description:  Ailing health club boardroom meeting.

DAPCIL  =  PLACID,  SNIULF  =  SINFUL,  TINTEK  =  KITTEN,  FATSIE  =  FIESTA,  DEEBIS  =  BESIDE,  SACULE  =  CLAUSE   —   Giving us:  ACSIFENFTSILS

Clue/Question:  What the exercise club lost when business slumped.

Answer:  FISCAL FITNESS

(Some purists might have a problem with fiesta, because it’s really a Spanish word.  But, hey!  This is 2010, and we’ve incorporated many “foreign” words into the English language.  To be truthful, it was the one clue word that I got hung up on.  I got clause right away, but I bet some were looking for a two syllable word.  Quotation marks around fiscal probably would have helped me get the answer quicker than I did.  I initially thought the second word was clients, but then I couldn’t do anything with ASFFIS!) —   YUR
