Pliny The Younger

Never do anything, concerning the rectitude of which you have a doubt.”   —   Pliny the Younger

(Unusual phrasing!  And, I’m assuming he’s speaking of the rectitude of others, and not your own.  If you doubted your own you’d certainly want to do something about it.  Be well, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  THIS is a Pliny the Younger I can easily understand!  No doubt!  Yum!      YUR

Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 08/14/11

Some Kills

Visual Description:  A wife cat telling her sloppy husband to quit smoking.

BSUHMA  =  AMBUSH,  SLIYAE  =  EASILY,  SNUEFI  =  INFUSE,  LTEUTO  OUTLET,  CRINHU  =  URCHIN,  REONDY  =  YONDER   —   Giving us:  ABUEAIFETTRCHOR

Clue/Question:  The cat blamed his inability to quit smoking on the fact that he was a . . .

Answer:  CREATURE OF HABIT

(Wow!  a 15 letter answer.  That’s pretty big.  And, I didn’t think the layout of the answer letters gave anything away, which is always a positive, in my book.  The only two clue words I got without any effort were “easily” and “infuse”.  It’s funny because “infuse” isn’t really all that common a word.  They use it in shampoo commercials a lot.  But that’s about it, outside of medical and economic speak.  I think we’ve seen “urchin” before, but with different scrambling.  “Outlet” is kind of a double whammy.  It’s a compound word and it starts with a vowel.  I probably had the most trouble with “ambush” and “yonder”.  Just really good all-around scrambling today!  How’d all of youse guys do?)   —   YUR
