Jumble Spoiler – 08/30/11

Daffy and Hitler in Daffy - The Commando

Visual Description:  A couple of Fudds really pissing off Daffy!

RCDOH  =  CHORD,  LRDWO  =  WORLD,  MEOEVR  =  REMOVE,  EBEFEL  =  FEEBLE   —   Giving us:  ODWOMOFL

Clue/Question:  Being shot at by the hunters put the duck in this.

Answer:  A FOWL MOOD

(Okay.  Nothing new in the clue word category, but I did like the scrambling of “chord” and “remove”.  I think it’s natural to get a little caught up in the soft CH sound, as opposed to the hard C/K sound that you also get from a ch.  That might have thrown some off, a little, on “chord”.  Good answer letter layout.  The answer sure seems like an old friend, but I think the cartoon, and the duck’s comment, makes up for this feeling like a repeat.  Be well and do good, friends!)   —   YUR

    Hi, everybody! I missed a few days! We had electric during all of Irene, but my yard and pool were a total mess, so I’ve been doing the Jumble, but not posting! All is well and no need to contact insurance company even though a big branch (16 ft.) fell on our roof and another one as big fell on our fence. Minor damage! I had to play around with REMOVE, but the rest was easy. We’ve had this duck theme before…FOWL…I think! Please keep the east coast in your thoughts and prayers tonight. A number of my friends have lost property, but thankfully all are safe!

    @ Lesley,

    Nice to hear you got through Irene relatively unscathed! Lots of branches to pick up in my yard, and it looks like I’ll need to cut one live branch down that got twisted and split. Never lost cable or electricity. Water is fine. One low section of my town was flooded pretty badly. Fortunately, we’re higher up. The town just to our north really got socked. One bridge out, one collapsing. Power is out. A big diesel spill. And one of the cleanup contractors hit a water main! To paraphrase Letterman: I wouldn’t give their troubles to a monkey on a rock! — YUR

    @ Paul,

    The more you do them, the easier they get. And, then you become a crank like me! — YUR
