Cryptoquote Spoiler – 08/30/10

What my mother believed about cooking is that if you worked hard and prospered, someone else would do it for you.”   —   Nora Ephron

Jumble Spoiler – 08/30/10

Visual Description:  One of George Carlin’s pet peeves.

TUBIL  =  BUILT,  EPSIO  =  POISE,  SHOIMD  =  MODISH,  REDUNE  =  ENDURE   —   Giving us:  UTSEODSND

Clue/Question:  Members of country clubs have these.

Answer:  DUES AND DONTS

(There definitely should be quotation marks around “dues”!  I hesitated with modish.  Anything ending in “ish” is always a little suspect, in my book.  Golf can be fun to play.  It definitely takes skill.  But contrast golf to soccer, and you’ll quickly see why the late, great George Carlin was not a fan of golf!)   —   YUR
