Jumble Spoiler – 12/21/10

Winter Solstice (2)

Visual Description:  Nurserymen enjoying their lunch break.

TIFED  =  FETID,  YEVAH  =  HEAVY,  YORCAN  =  CRAYON,  PIGNUM  =  IMPUGN   —   Giving us:  TDHEYNIUG

Clue/Question:  What the tree planters did at mealtime.

Answer:  THEY “DUG” IN

(Some really great clue words, today!  Both “fetid” and “impugn” are top shelf words!  And, the scrambling of “heavy” and “crayon” made those two ordinary words a bit of a challenge.  The answer itself was pretty easy.  At least for us Yanks.  I don’t know if the Brits say “dig in” like we do?  Happy Winter Solstice, everybody!  Did you get a look at that moon this (early) morning?  It was HUMONGOUS! I didn’t get up early enough to see the eclipse though.  Chances are it was too overcast for me to get a good look anyway.  Do good, friends.)   — YUR

    Marion C. Garretty is pseudonym for someone at a greeting card company. THERE IS NO AUTHOR OR PERSON BY THAT NAME. All searches produce only quotes, no bio information.

    I also found today’s quote with the word “cousin” substituted for sister. Whoever chooses the Cryptoquote ought to be ashamed of this hoax.

    You could be 100% correct, Lee. But, then again, you’re working with what amounts to a *lack of information*, so your deduction may, or may not, be accurate. In the last couple (+) years I’ve come upon a small handful of “authors” that I could find no bio info on. Some folks might just want it that way. The quote most definitely had a greeting card ring to it, though. It’s cool to see others who take the same approach to these quotes as I do! Rock on, brotha!
