Cryptoquote Spoiler – 07/16/10

Airplanes may kill you, but they ain’t likely to hurt you.”   — Satchel Paige

(Fairly tough one!  No word ending in “e”, no single letter words. Took a while to get this one started.  “Kill” and “likely” were the words to get this going for me.  Although, I did try “tall” and “lately first, but kind of knew that the “g” was going to be the “t”.   I always have some trouble with any quote that has “ain’t” in it.  I guess my mama done learnt me too good.)   — YUR ;~)

Jumble Spoiler – 07/16/10

Visual Description:  Santa Claus tilling the tundra.

TAFOO  =  AFOOT,  WATHE  =  WHEAT,  SHAWCE  =  CASHEW,  TEGOTH  =  GHETTO —   Giving us:  OOHESHEHEO

Clue/Question:  At Christmastime, Santa ho-ho-hos, in Summer he . . .

Answer:  HOEHOEHOES

(Nice cartoon, with the snow peas and the iceberg lettuce!  I had a certain amount of trouble with all four clue words.  I actually saw “afoot” right away, but I wasn’t convinced that it might be some other word.  Overall, very good scrambling, of both, the clue words and the answer!  I actually had to *cheat*, by looking at the cartoon before getting “ghetto” and “cashew”.  The answer, being pretty obvious, helped me to back into those last two words.  Try to stay cool today!  But also, try to conserve electricity.)   — YUR
