(Challenging) Jumble Spoiler – 11/18/10

Amazing Race Fast Forward clue.

Visual Description:  Cybil Shepard, getting a little touch up.

BROIT  =  ORBIT,  UMPIO  =  OPIUM,  LARLOF  =  FLORAL,  GRUBEO  =  BROGUE —   Giving us:  RTOPMLORBOE

Clue/Question:  When the aging model dyed her hair, she got to the . . .

Answer:  ROOT OF THE PROBLEM

(All the clue words were pretty tough today, but especially “brogue”.  That one had me going for a while.  Less so with “orbit” and “floral”, but they weren’t automatic either.  Some of you might be fortunate enough to have seen “The Last Picture Show” and/or the original version of “The Heartbreak Kid“.  Was Cybil ever the hottie, or what???  Aging pretty well also.  Fine woman!  Be good, do good, kiddies!)   — YUR
