Cryptoquote Spoiler – 04/26/10

High achievement always takes place in the framework of high expectation.”   — Charles Kettering

(This one took a while, because there was no “A” or “I”, and the first word was NOT “that”.  A good challenge.  And, a nice aim high/reach for the stars message.) YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 04/26/10

Visual Description:  Classic Gilligan’s Island scene.

HORAC  =  ROACH,  NUIFY  =  UNIFY,  MOAPED  =  POMADE,  GISTED  =  DIGEST —   Giving us:  RAIFAEDST

Clue/Question:  What the stranded boaters came up with to get off the island.

Answer:  A “RAFT” OF IDEAS

(Only “unify” jumped off the page for me this morning.  “Pomade” and “digest” took some thought, and I wasn’t completely sold on “roach” – don’t ask me why – until I saw that the letters fit the answer.  Couldn’t the guys have thrown in either Ginger or – even better – Maryann?!?!  For you deprived youngsters out there, “Gilligan’s Island” was the original “Lost”, except they were “shipwrecked”, as opposed to surviving an airline crash.  Oh, and there was no serious hanky-panky . . . as it was a half hour sitcom, without any metaphysical mystery to it.)
