Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 07/04/10

Discovery consists of seeing what everybody has seen and thinking what nobody has thought.”   — Igor Stravinsky

Sunday (4th of July) Jumble Spoiler – 2010

Visual Description:  Snooty types atop a mountain’s crest.

CAMINA  =  MANIAC,  CLARIA  =  RACIAL,  SOPHIL  =  POLISH,  SIFUNE  =  INFUSE,  GARNAL  =  RAGLAN,  GLOBIE  =  OBLIGE   —   Giving us:  MCACLISSERLOBI

Clue/Question:  What the blue noses became when they scaled the mountain.

Answer:  “SOCIALCLIMBERS

(Pretty tough jumble, huh people?  For me, only “polish” and “oblige” jumped off the page.  I really had to work to get the other 4 words.  I think we have seen “raglan” once before.  It’s a good thing that Merriam was handy!  I can see some folks having difficulty getting the answer too.  Great scrambling of the answer letters, and unless you picked up that they used the word “scaled”, instead of climbed, you might have struggled with this.  Very satisfying Sunday jumble!  Careful with the fireworks this evening!  You need your eyes and fingers to do the jumble!  Watch out for fires too.  The grass is like straw around here!  But, have a Happy Fourth!)   — YUR
