Cryptoquote Spoiler – 04/02/10

Slavery tolerates no freedom of the press, no freedom of speech, no freedom of opinion.”   — Hinton Helper

(This one took me quite a while.  No “I” or “A”.  Nothing, other than “THE”, ended in an E.  And, even the author name was of no use to me.  I suspected XFD was THE, but I didn’t feel confident about it.  Playing with the RJ helped me figure out NO and OPINION.  Only after that did I feel comfortable with getting the rest of it.  I guess it really was a Good Friday . . . for us word gamers!)

Jumble Spoiler – 04/02/10

Visual Description:  An unhappy couple driving down a cluttered highway.

LODDY  =  ODDLY,  ROVLE  =  LOVER,  BIMBIE  =  IMBIBE,  DAHVEL  =  HALVED —   Giving us:  OLLRIBBED

Clue/Question:  Passing the signs on the road for hours left them . . .

Answer:  BILL BORED

(The four clue words came to me in an instant, but the answer required me to look carefully at the cartoon.  The answer letters were nicely mixed.  Not obvious.  Quotation marks might have helped with this pun/play on words, but then again maybe not.  Billboard is only one word.  But, that’s NOT why this is so late today.  I had a heck of a time solving the cryptoquote this AM.  And most of you regulars know that your uncle has to have both answers before he goes to press!)
