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

    Producing the same result, turune could also be nuture as I found.

    Thank you, Christina. You are absolutely correct, and I did not see it . . . at all. It’s pretty rare that they use a scrambled word that can have more than one outcome. Rarer still that the letters that they want/need would be in the exact same spaces of those two outcomes! Now, we need to remember to to check next Sunday’s paper, to see which word they had in mind!

    Not 100% positive, but I believe “nuture” is not a word. It is a frequent misspelling for “nurture”.

    Hey, blanco!

    Are you working with daveb, or something? When I saw “nuture”, in Christina’s comment I *thought* I was seeing “nurture”. (Someone must be pulling a Jedi mind trick on me.) You are right. There is no such word as “nuture”.

    Keep looking at my old posts and comments. I’m sure there are more mistakes out there.

    Regards,
    YUR
