Cryptoquote Spoiler – 04/29/10

He who lives by the crystal ball soon learns to eat ground glass.”   — Edgar R. Fiedler

(Very clever quote!  I like it!) YUR

(Tough) Jumble Spoiler – 04/29/10

Visual Description:  Upset couple leaving the kitschy restaurant.

DUGAY  =  GAUDY,  PHOWO  =  WHOOP,  FARITY  =  RATIFY,  GUNJEL  =  JUNGLE   —   Giving us:  ADWORTUN

Clue/Question:  The couple left the restaurant because the accordion music was . . .

Answer:  “DRAWNOUT

(I almost put this one up for grabs, today!  I first came up with ROUND WAT or ROUND TAW, but those didn’t make ANY sense.  Then I came up with WOUND ART, which arguably makes sense, due to the woman saying that her “ears hurt”.  But, even that seemed like a stretch, for numerous reasons.  Then the word DROWN came to me, but I couldn’t do anything with AUT.  Then finally, the light went on, and I saw “DRAWN” OUT.  And, it made sense, considering how an accordion makes music.  Some great clue words, and good scrambling of the answer letters as well!  Hope this didn’t drive some of you nuts . . . like the poor couple in the cartoon!) —   YUR
