(Tough?) Jumble Spoiler – 01/21/11

Visual Description:  Grumpy golfers taking issue with the TV weatherman.

ORNOH  =  HONOR,  TEMPY  =  EMPTY,  WELLOB  =  BELLOW,  SNORPI  =  PRISON   —   Giving us:  HRETEWISO

Clue/Question:  The forecaster was weather wise, but the golfers considered him . . .

Answer:  OTHERWISE

(I nearly gave up on this one!  The clue words were so easy, I thought this would be a piece of cake.  I played with WORTH, WORST, WHERE, SHORT, HORSE, SEWER, TOWER and SHOWER, to no avail.  I actually did isolate the “wise” at one point fairly early on.  But, when I looked at “horet” I just didn’t see “other”.  I took a break to do the cryptoquote, and that one nearly did me in, as well!  But, I finally got it.  And then, somehow . . . I was otherwise enlightened!  Nice job, Jeff and . . . er the other guy.)   — YUR

    I had trouble with this one also, but since I am a clinical lab scientist I came up with “prions” instead of prison!

    Common word . . . for you. Just not for the rest of us.

    I thought it was prions as well! That’s what I get for being a scientist. 🙂

    Thank you! I’ve looked at this every day since the 21st and finally gave up. I’m no scientist but I used prions also.
