(Better) Jumble Spoiler – 03/02/11

Graduating seniors at Brown University in Prov...

Image via Wikipedia

Visual Description:  A temporarily derailed train of thought, at the commencement.

NTIKH  =  THINK,  FSIFN  =  SNIFF,  ERMOYM  =  MEMORY,  GFEOTR  =  FORGET —   Giving us:  INSNMEMOORET

Clue/Question:  The graduating student had one when he gave his speech.

Answer:  SENIOR MOMENT (Too long for “A” SENIOR MOMENT)

(Actually, much better.  I’m a big fan of the longer answers!  The clue words weren’t unusual words, but they were well scrambled.  And, there was nothing obvious about the answer letters.  I’m a much happier uncle this morning.  Hopefully, this will be like the person you initially just don’t like the looks of, but then go on to be great friends.  Do some good today, troops!)   — YUR

    Too easy, again! If I don’t scream at least once at the Jumble and throw it on the floor, then it’s not hard enough! I whipped this out in less than 10 minutes with no screaming or throwing! I did like the interesting choice of words that all seemed to relate to memory: think, memory, and forget. Sniff is even related because people say that the sense that brings back memories the fastest is the sense of smell! Enjoy our sunny day!

    It certainly wasn’t tough. But, I do think it was generally better. Besides, I bitched at the guys two days straight. Don’t want them to develop a complex!

    That was bitching? We look to your “constructive criticism” to try to improve. There will be a learning curve.(Ooh that would make a good Jumble “Learning Curve”.) Let David get his Jumble legs rolling and your patience will be rewarded. I can’t draw “Fare Weather ” again. Good catch on the words relating to memory, Lesley!

    Fine line semantics and matter of perspective, Jeff. Glad you’ve got the right perspective.

    Our Lesley has more on the ball than yer old uncle. All I was thinking this morning was that the first clue word yesterday was THANK and today it was THINK. Is tomorrow’s going to be THING, or THINE? Or, maybe jump back and give us SHANK?
