Jumble Spoiler – 04/08/11

A photo of a cup of coffee.

Visual Description:  A semi-demi-coffee lover.

PAKLN  =  PLANK,  AHHCT  =  HATCH,  FEONDF  =  OFFEND,  AOLFRV  =  FLAVOR   —  Giving us:  LAHAHFNDFLA

Clue/Question:  What the math teacher used in his coffee to make it whole.

Answer:  HALF AND HALF

(Second no-brainer in the last two days, guys!  Everything was scrambled nicely, but none of the clue words were difficult.  And, the answer was as obvious as the answer to: What did Dave Meggett – allegedly – ask the undercover female police officer for?  Besides, real men drink their coffee black!  I don’t think anyone really needed the visual “bonus clue” today.  They should be reserved for when  the puzzle is more challenging.  ralis95 can tell us if any of the clue words were new.  Not an auspicious way to end the work week, boys.)   — YUR

    No new ones today. I’m with you – the words seemed to jump out of the jumbles with no effort at all. I guess you’ll have to come up with a “Difficulty Rating System” from 1 to 5 and start posting it with your solutions.

    Best,

    Not a bad idea, ralis95! I’d need to come up with some kind of weighting system. Maybe based on word and answer letter scrambling, the difficulty/obscurity of the answer, and whether or not there are any “bonus clues”. Based on the quality of the overall scrambling I could give this one a 3. But, the “bonus clues” and fairly self-evident answer kind of bring it down to a 2.

    What do you think?

    I think I broke a personal record with this one today. Probably took me all of 15 seconds to solve all the word jumbles and the answer.

    Too often I’ll get stumped even on easy puzzles, but everything jumped off the page on this one.

    Idea for a difficulty rating is interesting. For today’s puzzle, I’d give it a 1.5, tops.

    OK. So weight each of the elements you suggested (from 1-5), then add them up and divide by the number of elements rated to come up with an overall average rating. It’s not necessary to list each element rated, nor the rating for that element – just show the final rating you arrived at.
