Jumble Spoiler – 08/18/10

Visual Description:  “Dear Abby” at the Podiatrist’s office.

FRASC  =  SCARF,  LAGEE  =  EAGLE,  LOYMED  =  MELODY,  BELMAM  =  EMBLAM  s/b:  EMBALM   —   Giving us:  SREALODEB

Clue/Question:  What the advice columnist did when she went to the foot doctor.

Answer:  BARED HER “SOLE

(They wouldn’t/didn’t put the quotation marks in – at least not in my newspaper – but I will . . . because THAT is the pun!  Geez!  “Emblam” was a great clue word!  Good scrambling of the answer letters.  Be good, do good, guys!)   —   YUR

(An immaterial mistake, as far as effecting the outcome/answer to the jumble . . . BUT a mistake nonetheless!  All apologies.)   —   YUR

    YUR,

    Enjoy your site. Emblam is not a word. Embalm and Emblem are words. I think the clue word is Embalm.

    Shouldn’t that be EMBALM, not emblam??

    Hi Unclerave,

    I have to tell you that it was possibly an oversight on your part, but BELMAM became EMBALM, not EMBLAM as you stated on your solution. I threw out “EMBLEM” since that word has no A. Happy descrambling!!

    It’s embalm, not emblam.

    The kids LOVE it when their Uncle makes a mistake!!! Thank you for pointing it out to me, ladies! I will edit the spoiler, appropriately.

    Regards,
    YUR
