Jumble Spoiler – 03/01/11

Visual Description:  Ah, yes.  The first of the unnecessary “bonus letters”.

AHTKN  =  THANK,  URHYR  =  HURRY,  EKPTOC  =  POCKET,  VCAIED  =  ADVICE —   Giving us:  TAHRRYPOTAIE

Clue/Question:  What the ceramics maker became when he worked too many hours.

Answer:  A HAIRY POTTER

(No.  That’s not the monogram of Jeffrey Robert Knurek on that vase!  It’s the initials of that Brit chick billionaire, who created our punnable character.  Shouldn’t there be quotation marks around “HAIRY”, guys?  The only clue word that took more than two seconds to get was “advice”, and the answer was already pretty obvious.  You can make out “HARRYPOT” right in the poorly scrambled answer letters.  I didn’t even notice the initials until I was starting to post this.  And, using four letters from a five letter clue word?  What up wi dat?  Is this the new kid-friendly version of the Jumble, or have you guys given into, and now want to become part of, the dumbing down of America?  TRY HARDER, boys!)   — YUR
