Jumble Spoiler – 11/30/10

Skydiving - US military

Visual Description:  Two parachutists.  One Gung Ho, the other Oh, No.

LAFAT  =  FATAL,  IDDEA  =  AIDED,  PLAACA  =  ALPACA,  REESOI  =  SOIREE —   Giving us:  TLADAPEE

Clue/Question:  What he did when he was offered a chance to skydive.

Answer:  LEAPED AT IT

(Having the one guy a little reticent might have thrown some of you.  It did me, for a minute, or so.  Some of you English purists might take offense to “soiree”, but it’s become part of the vernacular.  “alpaca” was fun!  And, even “aided” took me a few looks.  The guys seem to be really paying attention to the scrambling of the answer letters lately.  And, that’s a good thing.  We do this for the challenge!  Right?  Be good, do good, my chilluns!)   — YUR

Answer:  LOST A BIG ONE

(“You know it crumbles dat way, at least dat’s what dey say when you play da game!”  Do you think our guys might have a behavioral addiction?  Eh!  Decent clue words.  Very good scrambling of the answer letters.  And, a nice play on words.  Back to the grind, friends.  Happy Cyber Monday!)   — YUR

Clue/Question:  The novice bookie suffered tough times because he didn’t . . .

Answer:  KNOW ANY BETTOR

(GREAT scrambling of the answer letters.  The clue words were average to slightly above average.  But, a fun little pun.  I thought I was going to have more trouble getting the answer than I actually did.  Hopefully,  you guys had fun solving this too!  Enjoy the remainder of the holiday weekend!)   — YUR

(The guys set this one up for my buddy, ralis!  “The ralis95 Method” with the answer letters!  That reminds me.  I owe him an e-mail.  Be good, do good, friends.)   — YUR

Clue/Question:  For some, an unpopular way of making money.

Answer:  HARD WORK

(Not as tough as yesterday’s, but “alkali” and “barrow” are pretty good clue words.  Decent scrambling of the answer letters, even if the answer was pretty obvious.  I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving.  I certainly did.  Do good, friends.)   — YUR

PS.  This fowl creature survived because he/she is one ugly turkey!  Since when do turkeys have webbed feet, anyway?   YUR  🙂
