Visual Description:  Pirate captain leading some men to walk the plank.

ROSYR  =  SORRY,  YILSK  =  SILKY,  RETAUM  =  MATURE,  FULOWE  =  WOEFUL   —   Giving us:  SORSILAREWEF

Clue/Question:  When the captain ordered crew cuts, the ship had . . .

Answer:  FEWER SAILORS

(A 12 letter answer to end the work week!  Not bad.  Not the greatest scrambling of the answer letters, though.  You can clearly see the word “fewer” in reverse, at the end of the letters.  Maybe, in a past life, I was either Chinese or Jewish.  I do seem to do a lot of things backwards!  Maybe that explains it?)   — YUR 🙂

    Funny, my answer to this Jumble was FALSE WORRIES, which makes sense if the captain’s order was really about cutting hair, not crew.

    Whatever *floats yer boat*, P.P.,CA!!! (I always like it when someone comes up with an alternate answer, that *could* work.)

    YUR
