When two men fight over a woman, it’s the fight they want, not the woman.”   —   Brendan Francis (Behan)

(Very true.  Which is one of the reasons why I’m a lover — of life, my teeth, my good looks — and not a fighter!  This poor sot barely made it to his 41st birthday.  This guy drank so heavily he made Mickey Mantle look like a teetotaler.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 09/01/11

Glazed Root Filet Mignon

Visual Description:  Plebeian diner dismissing his entrée.

AVLCO  =  VOCAL,  CEHKC  =  CHECK,  TWRHOG  =  GROWTH,  SARDUB  =  ABSURD   —   Giving us:  ALERWAD

Clue/Question:  Being overcharged for the undercooked steak was this.

Answer:  A RAW DEAL

(Once again, great scrambling all around!  I toyed with “wrought” before realizing the word simply was “growth”, and “absurd” is such a great word.  I wonder how long it took Lesley to get this?  The answer letter layout gave nothing away.  I don’t have a whole lot of sympathy for our dining dude.  When something is undercooked it takes next to no time to remedy the situation.  You just pop it back on the grill – or what have you – for another couple of minutes, and all is well.  But, when something is overcooked, well . . . you’re toast!  They have to recook an entire new one.  It takes a heck of a lot longer to do that.  If you have a conscience, and worry about it going to waste, then that’s on your mind.  Also, if you’re a slow eater it means that everyone else is going to be finished by the time your second attempt arrives.  So, chances are you’re just going to bite the bullet, and eat it anyway.  How many people eat out alone, anyway?  To me, the issue is similar to being cold versus being hot.  You can always put more clothing on, or cuddle up with someone, but you’re kind of limited to what you can take off.  And, when you’re hot . . . boy, do you want your space!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
