Jumble Spoiler – 02/24/11

Visual Description:  Anxious beginner, ready for the bunny slope.

FRYOE  =  FOYER,  BLAUM  =  ALBUM,  WREABE  =  BEWARE,  SNIPOO  =  POISON   —   Giving us:  FOAUWRPS

Clue/Question:  How the novice skier felt when he started down the slope.

Answer:  HE WAS UP FOR IT

(Not bad.  The clue words and the answer letters were all well scrambled.  Whenever the answer has two or three short words it’s usually pretty easy to get.  And, today was no exception.  It kind of looks like they removed some dialog/comment bubbles, at the last moment.  I wonder what the guys had them saying?  Do good, people.)   — YUR

    The novice (with the black cap) might have said, “I’m ready”, but perhaps it would have made the answer too obvious.
    They both should have borrowed yesterday’s helmets, though.

    I’d buy “I’m ready”. But, I think they could pass on the helmets. It’s the bunny slope, son.

    I’m inclined to think that accidents can happen on the bunny slope, too.

    Marc is *inclined* on the *slope*, folks! (Your Uncle Rave is just a natural straight man!)

    (I intentionally refrained from using quotes.)

    Lighten up, Marcus. Striving to prevent every single remote accident is one of the major reasons why our society has become over-litigious. We shouldn’t live in fear of every little thing. Reason and moderation should be our guiding principles. Besides, I’m sure we could find a good number of people who would argue that helmets give far too many people a false sense of security.

    All I said was that I intentionally left out the quotes, knowing, obviously, that in the spirit of word play, they fit around the word inclined.

    Sure you did, pal. Keep those cards and letters comin’! 😉

    Were you wondering if I pondered quoting skiing safety sources?

  10. 10 unclerave February 25, 2011 at 5:50 pm

    Boy, I sure hope not, pal. The issue is really pretty unimportant to me. Just enjoying the repeat business.

    Just trying to clarify the communication…
