Nobody has any conscience about adding to the improbabilities of a marvelous tale.”   — Nathaniel Hawthorne

(Maybe this quote – my first Hawthorne quote – is what inspired J.K. Rowling to write her Harry Potter series.)   — YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 03/03/11

1970's style tow truck still in use, Edmonton ...

Visual Description:  Connected towing contractor.

NFOTR  =  FRONT,  UPPML  =  PLUMP,  ERLPUP  =  PURPLE,  HOSDUL  =  SHOULD   —   Giving us:  FOTLPULSOL

Clue/Question:  Why the tow truck driver was able to help.

Answer:  LOTS OF PULL

(Pretty good.  The phrasing of the clue/question probably would have been better if it had ended with:  HE HAD . . . but I think most were able to figure the answer out regardless of the lack of flow.  No surprises with the clue words.  All pretty common.  Both they and the answer letters were nicely scrambled.  I still don’t think Lesley had to throw this on the floor, or anything.  And, Amy probably didn’t have to “cheat”.  If they, or anyone, writes in with further critique we’ll know more.  Maybe we’ll even hear from Marc, Ken, Richard, or the MIA . . . ralis95!  It could happen.)   — YUR
