Cryptoquote Spoiler – 07/15/10

A word to the wise ain’t necessary – it’s the stupid ones that need the advice.”   — Bill Cosby

(Hey!  It’s “The Cos”!  For this blog this is the very first Bill Cosby quote.  Ever since they named Admiral Thad Allen to head up the Gulf Disaster I’ve been seeing Barack Obama as Bill Cosby – from “The Cosby Kids” days – and Thad Allen as Fat Albert.  Hey, hey, hey!  Here’s Thad Allen! Now, I just have to figure out who in this administration is Russell, Rudy, Dumb Donald, Bucky, Weird Harold and Mush Mouth! Oops!  Don’t let the *right* see this post!)   — YUR

(Tough) Jumble Spoiler – 07/15/10

Visual Description:  Female shoppers being lured to the perfume counter.

BOINS  =  BISON,  YAMEL  =  MEALY,  DUCLOY  =  CLOUDY,  MIESED  =  DEMISE   —   Giving us:  BNMLLOUDES

Clue/Question:  When the women neared the perfume counter, they were . . .

Answer:  SMELLBOUND

(OK.  Maybe it’s just because I’m in a bit of a rush this morning, but this had me stumped for a while.  It’s a good pun/play on words.  The answer letters were well scrambled.  My initial thought was to look for a simpler word that the guys were NOT using, but I got side-tracked, and was looking for something to end in “ED”.  I was about to employ the ralis95 method when the word “bound” hit me, and then I saw the obvious word in the remaining letters.  Good job, guys!  I hope all the wordsmiths enjoyed this!)   — YUR
