Tough Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 01/16/11

A traffic jam in Poland.

Visual Description:  An impromptu traffic jam-boree!

AEDING  =  GAINED,  QUOMES  =  MOSQUE,  YATIRR  =  RARITY,  CRUSIC  =  CIRCUS,  YERRSH  =  SHERRY,  HIRTED  =  DITHER —   Giving us:  NEOUEITRSSHDHR

Clue/Question:  When the school band got stuck in traffic, they . . .

Answer:  USED THEIR HORNS

(Great clue words!  I had a heck of a time getting “gained” and “dither“!  Very good scrambling of the answer letters.  Technically, a saxophone is not a horn, but the cartoon, with all the “honking”, definitely helped me figure this one out!  Well.  I guess I’m not clairvoyant!  Great game, but the Ravens lost the momentum early in the second half, due to two costly turnovers.  More funky officiating, too.  But, I guess it all balanced out.  I don’t know why they kept trying to run with an ill Ray Rice, on first and second down so much, in the second half.  They had much more success, in the first half, setting up the run with the pass.  The Pack seems to be for real!  It started off as a close game, but they capitalized on some late first half mistakes, then they never looked back!  Bad day for birds, huh?  Will it continue today, with the Bears batting the Seahawks?  Maybe the flying machines will fare better, this afternoon!  Who knows?  Enjoy the games!)   — YUR

    Hi Yur,

    I can understand your comment that technically, a saxophone isn’t a horn, but wanted to mention that to us musicians, it definitely is. Even flutes, which I also play.
    Hope you’re healing quickly.

    Best,
    Marc

    I guess if you broke all musical instruments down into percussion, strings and horns then the woodwinds would HAVE to come under horns! Thanks, Marc!

    Clarence Clemons in an interview…“All the time I was hoping to play football, I always had my HORN in the car and I’d go out jamming. My first town where I started working was Jamesburg, New Jersey, which is west of Asbury Park. I was messing around with the HORN, jamming—when I heard a band playing, I’d jump out and play. I met this guy named Norman Selden who had a band, and I was playing with him. The girl singer was telling me about this guy Bruce. She saw this thing happening, and she said ‘you guys ought to get together, it would be something really fantastic.’

    If the “Big Man” says it’s a horn, it’s a horn!

    I played around with “dirth” for a while, as well. I put the jumble down and read the funnies. When I got to “Blondie” I remembered Mr. Dithers, and then it hit me!

    YUR
