Jumble Spoiler – 08/29/11

Springtime for product placement.

Visual Description:  Quasi-historic product placement puzzle.

KHSUY  =  HUSKY,  GIGNA  =  AGING,  WSROYD  =  DROWSY,  BRBEOR  =  ROBBER   —   Giving us:  SYAGDOOER

Clue/Question:  Founded in 1898, Frank Seiberling‘s tire and rubber company has had many . . .

Answer:  GOOD YEARS

(Oh, look!  They’re wearing Brooks Brothers suits!  And, isn’t that a Waterman pen the taller gentleman is holding?  LOL!  I kid, because . . . I can!  I wonder how many might have written down KUSHY instead of HUSKY?  I did think it, but I caught myself.  You get the S and Y either way, but of course you’d be mistaking CUSHY.  Great scrambling, and great answer letter layout.  I guess if you didn’t happen to notice the tire below the portrait – kind of the elephant in the room – you could always have Googled the name Frank, or Charles, Seiberling to figure out the answer.  Maybe something some of our non-American readers might have needed to do?  Unclerave’s Wordy Weblog has an international following, you know?!?!  Something a little different for a Monday morning.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
