Cryptoquote Spoiler – 01/19/11

I am opposed to millionaires, but it would be dangerous to offer me the position.”   — Mark Twain

(I feel exactly the same way about billionaires!  Who am I kidding?  At this point I might settle for being a high thousand-aire!  I need a real job, folks.  I’m not making any money blogging.  Any work out there for wise guy puzzle solvers?  Hey!  It’s Paul Cézanne‘s birthday today!  I used one of his paintings recently, for the tablecloth in it!  A couple of gents playing cards.  I still prefer the impressionists.  That transition period so opened up the world of art.  If I were a billionaire I’d own some Cézannes – maybe this one – and some Gaughins, Rousseaus, Monets, and a few Degas, etc., etc. )   — YUR

(Wicked Wednesday) Jumble Spoiler – 01/19/11

Rotate (1)

Visual Description:  Worker working while slacker slacks.

UPTYT  =  PUTTY,  PRAAK  =  PARKA,  MESSTY  =  SYSTEM,  ATTORE  =  ROTATE —   Giving us:  UTRKSYOAE

Clue/Question:   A co-worker who takes his time can do this.

Answer:  TAKE YOURS

(Very good!  First, I had a tough time getting “rotate”.  I kept trying “oatter”, which isn’t a word, but I was thinking “oater” as in cowboy movie.  Then, after getting past that, I’m looking at the well-scrambled answer letters and drawing a blank.  I was trying “stay” something, and something “story”.  Then “easy” something.  Ahh!  Then, I finally made out the word “take”, which is also part of the clue/question, and the rest fell into place.  I almost called this one “Tough Tuesday” because I don’t seem to know what day it is.  Glad I caught myself!)   — YUR
