Cryptoquote Spoiler – 04/28/10

Everything one invents is true, you may be perfectly sure of that.  Poetry is as precise as geometry.”   — Gustave Flaubert

(Was this meant to be a tongue-in-cheek remark?  I’ve never been very clear when it comes to poetry, and the invention line sounds strange as well.  Anyone know if this was said seriously . . . or satirically?) —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 04/28/10

Visual Description:  Television reporter busting in on some counterfeiters.

USSOE  =  SOUSE,  NAISE  =  ANISE,  PYTSHU  =  TYPHUS,  POURRA  =  UPROAR   —   Giving us:  SSESETPSPRO

Clue/Question:  What the counterfeiter said when he was confronted by the reporter.

Answer:  STOP THE PRESSES

(All great clue words, today!  I had to back into “typhus” by looking at the cartoon and question, and seeing what letters I still needed to come up with the answer . . . that I was 97.5% sure that it was.  Fortunately, I was correct with my answer assumption, and the necessity/placement of the “t”, “p” and “s” finally got me to “typhus”.  Sorry about the lateness of today’s posting.  I’m training for a new job, and I’m just getting the opportunity to post.) —   YUR
