Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 05/23/10

A ship is always referred to as “she” because it costs so much to keep one in paint and powder.”   — Chester Nimitz

(I may receive hate mail on this, but I have a particular fondness for the quotes that are pre-political correctness! As long as they don’t advocate any kind of violence, of course.)   — YUR

Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 05/23/10

Visual Description:  “Entitlement” issue at the big funeral.

MIRABU  =  BARIUM,  DEELEN  =  NEEDLE,  REECCO  =  COERCE,  TURUNE  =  UNTRUE,  DEFILD  =  FIDDLE,  SABDUR  =  ABSURD —   Giving us:  BIEEORTEDLSD

Clue/Question:  What the eccentric tycoon left in his will.

Answer:  A LOT TO BE DESIRED

(I hesitated with “barium”, because it’s “scientific”, but it’s an element, so it’s all good.  And then, only “coerce” gave me pause.  The other clue words were pretty straight forward.  Good word play with the answer!  It’s a nice Sunday jumble.  Enjoy the rest of the weekend, gang!)   — YUR
