Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 03/06/11

Visual Description:  Yur basic Math class.

REVUPY  =  PURVEY,  THOOSE  =  SOOTHE,  YIBOSH  =  BOYISH,  UPLEDD  =  PUDDLE,  SMILFY  =  FLIMSY,  INMOOD  =  DOMINO   —   Giving us:  PVHEOISDELIDIN

Clue/Question:  He wore his glasses to class because it . . .

Answer:  HELPED DIVISION (the vision)

(This is what a Sunday Jumble is supposed to look like!  14 answer letters, nicely scrambled, to make 2 large words!  The cartoon contains a visual clue, on the chalk board, while being careful to use an alternative to divided by.  And, there’s a nice little pun.  I thought we might really be in for it when I saw the first clue word, “purvey”.   But, the next four came right away.  “Domino” took me a couple of looks, as well.  These are the kind of Jumbles most of us diehards look forward to.  Enjoy the remainder of your weekends, friends!)   — YUR

    I couldn’t do this one because I don’t get the Sunday paper, and I didn’t feel like going out in the rain! Waaaa! The Sunday Jumble prints on-line as a different one! But, I have to say I like this one! Duh, vision! Ha! Sounds like Vinnie Barbarino from “Welcome Back Cotter.” Nice job guys!

    We don’t get a Sunday jumble, and I am quite upset about it. So, I come here and look at the scrambled letters and try to solve them without looking at the answer right next to them. It’s the only thing our paper eliminates on Sundays: still have the crossword, sudoku, cryptoquote, Dear Abby, Heloise, horoscopes, etc. Lame? Yes!

    That IS lame, Ame! You should be able to expect some consistency from your newspaper. Write to your paper and ask them to carry it on Sundays as well. Tell them you speak for many puzzle fans. Sometimes they eliminate things, figuring no one will complain. Sometimes all it takes is one complaint. If they don’t respond to just yours, turn your letter into a kind of petition and take it to some retirement/senior centers. Seniors read the newspapers more than other demographic groups, and a lot of them do the Jumble to help stay mentally sharp. The great thing about these places is that they kind of herd together. You don’t have to walk from house to house, and they can’t exactly out run you. Just remember to smile and be polite to them.

    I bet you could get this done.
