Jumble Spoiler – 08/09/11

Astronauts on the ISS in weightless conditions...

Visual Description:  Fun – for some – with zero gravity.


Clue/Question:  The space station astronaut was so into his book that he couldn’t do this.

Answer:  PUT IT DOWN

(Possibly inspired by one of our very own???  “mince” and “nutty” were pretty obvious, but both “blotch” and “warped” were fun!  And, I was very happy with the way the answer letters fell into place.  Absolutely no giveaways there, today!  Nice going, David.  Also, a fine cartoon, with a good choice of books, Jeff.  “2001 a Space Odyssey“, by Arthur C. Clarke, is a great story.  I never read it, but I did see the movie, with Keir Dullea.  Unfortunately,  I was just a kid at the time, and I had a tough time following it.  I was only 10 years old, in Fifth grade, and I believe it was Scott Rich’s 11th birthday party, that gave me the opportunity of seeing it.  Scott moved away within a year, or so, of that, and I never heard of him ever again.  I guess he was one of those friends who come into your life for a season!  Nice kid.  I hope he’s having a wonderful life.  And, I hope that you guys had as much fun with today’s Jumble as I did!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Clue words weren’t too hard today, and solution took some thought. “2001: A Space Odyssey” was most certainly a very strange movie for its time. I read “Dune” in college by Clarke, also I believe, and that was long and very “out there,” but I liked it.

    Lots of people looked up “prdawe”. I thought “tcbohl” was a pretty good scramble too, but I guess not that many had trouble seeing “blotch”. “Dune” was written by a cat named Frank Herbert. I never read any of that saga, but I understand that it was highly popular.
