Cryptoquote Spoiler – 05/27/10

Live now, believe me, wait not till tomorrow; gather the roses of life today.”   — Pierre de Ronsard

(Valuable words, indeed.  But, spoken by a man – a poet, actually – with no children, no spouse, no mortgage(s), etc., etc. etc.  You get the picture.)   — YUR

(Tough?) Jumble Spoiler – 05/27/10

Visual Description:  Looking like the Cubs might actually be winning a game!

ATQUO  =  QUOTA,  LAVIA  =  AVAIL,  DELIJA  =  JAILED,  UNOFSI  =  FUSION —   Giving us:  QOTAIILDUIN

Clue/Question:  The kind of sale the beer vendor held near the end of the game.

Answer:  LIQUIDATING S/BLIQUIDATION

(Maybe it’s just me, but this one took me a while today.  The clue words I got immediately.  But, with the answer I kept trying for some variant of “delinquent”, and anything with “quant” in it.  I played around with “quota” too, but didn’t think they’d have one of their clue words in the answer.  I think putting the Q up front, and having a word like “quota” in the game, was intentional . . . and pretty smart.  They had me going!)   — YUR

PS.  I really shouldn’t kid around with Cubs fans.  I’m a die-hard Mets fan.  These last few years have been brutal.  Especially following the infamous ’06 meltdown!

(Big THANKS, to Don!  I guess I was so jazzed at getting the LIQUID portion of the answer that I spaced on the ending!  Sorry, guys.  I’ll try to not let it happen again.  No promises though.)   —   YUR
