Jumble Spoiler – 03/30/10

Visual Description:  An apprentice learning about the power of knowledge.

REWAY  =  WEARY,  EWTTE  =  TWEET,  SHATAM  =  ASTHMA,  NEXETT  =  EXTENT —   Giving us:  WATWASHTT

Clue/Question:  A good electrician knows this.

Answer:  WHATS WATT

(WATT probably should have had quotation marks around it.  If they had switched the order of the clue jumble words – TWEET then WEARY, EXTENT then ASTHMA – the answer letters might have been a little less obvious.  As it is it wasn’t much of a challenge today.) YUR

    I had HASMAT for ASTHMA before I figured out the puzzle and then returned to that scramble. Should have known… no abbreviations, or hazardous materials.

    Yeah, Keith. If they started allowing even common abbreviations and/or acronyms it’d probably get a little hairier than it already is! Nothing wrong with a little trial and error though. It looks like ASTHMA has stumped a quite few people today! Thanks for checking in, bud!

    . . . or *quite a few*. Whenever I get cute, and decide to insert a last minute word (quite) I invariably will put it in the wrong spot! — YUR
