Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 07/11/10

Visual Description:  Farmer Brown behind on his taxes?

ERASHE  =  HEARSE,  GLERCY  =  CLERGY,  CAMIOT  =  ATOMIC,  GLEANB  =  BANGLE,  GRINTY  =  TRYING,  YURLOH  =  HOURLY   —   Giving us:  ASERMINGTNH

Clue/Question:  When the parsley farmer didn’t pay his debt, he faced . . .

Answer:  GARNISH MENT

(Very nice pun!  The clue words were fairly simple.  But, I can see some of the younger folk having a hard time getting “atomic”.  The word is kind of passe.  I had to back track on the very first word.  My first impulse was “rasher”, and not “hearse”.  But, after I made the connection of parsley to garnish I realized I was missing the “A”.  At that point I had to re-evaluate the situation.  Since my first inclination was two syllables I was, naturally, looking for another two syllable word.  This slowed me down for a minute or two, before (the) hearse finally hit me!  Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!)   — YUR

PS.  Ooh, ooh!  Did you see that the guys put my initials into the scrambled “hourly”?  Yessirree, folks!  Your Uncle Rave is making the big time!  LOL!!!
