Cryptoquote Spoiler – 04/01/11

John Wooden reprint

A coach is someone who can give correction without causing resentment.”   — John Wooden

(The world is sorely in need of more coaches.  Constructive criticism needs to be both tempered and tailored, to the intended.  Some hearty souls can take the brutal truth, while most of us require a certain amount of stroking.  I solved today’s without first ascertaining the letter “e”, which is unusual for me.  It’s nice to surprise yourself from time to time.  Be careful out there today, friends.  It’s April Fools Day.)   — YUR

Visual Description:  Jeff and David being punked?

CFKIL  =  FLICK,  LPKNA  =  PLANK,  EFRUES  =  REFUSE,  OLNEDO  =  NOODLE   —   Giving us:  FLIPLARSOO

Clue/Declaration:  Attention readers:  AFTER TODAY, JUMBLE WILL NO LONGER BE FEATURED IN NEWSPAPERS

Answer:  APRIL FOOLS

(They actually had me going, for about 10 seconds!  With the current – sad – state of newspapers, I was thinking maybe it was going to be offered only online, or something.  But, I soon remembered the date, glanced up at the letters, and gave myself a quick “Doh!”.  The overall scrambling has now become a non-issue, as Mr. Hoyt seems to be paying attention to those pesky little details.  It took me a few looks before I figured out “refuse”.  And, I don’t recall ever seeing the word “flick” before.  ralis95 can verify this by checking his database.  I don’t think that very many of the Jumble stalwarts were actually fooled, but even the best of us can lose track of what day it is.  I just wish that the weather would stop playing this April Fools joke on us!  Accumulation isn’t really a concern for my area, but dammit, I’d sure like to see the forsythia in bloom!  Be well, do good, my friends.)   — YUR
