Jumble Spoiler – 09/27/11

The Santa Monica Pier, California, Usa

Visual Description:  Teen boys testing each others limits.

ROEAP  =  OPERA,  FRUYR  =  FURRY,  SOIGPS  =  GOSSIP,  HWNEEP  =  NEPHEW   —   Giving us:  PERURRSSIEPE

Clue/Question:  Their diving at Santa Monica beach created this.

Answer:  PIER PRESSURE

(Almost forgot the quotation marks!    Nice scrambling of words that seemed tried and true, to yours truly.  The answer letter layout was only so-so, today.  Really only six separate letters to play with, so I know it ain’t easy.  Throwing “Santa Monica” into the clue/question also made getting the answer pretty simple.  They have one of the most famous piers in the world.  I don’t think that too many will struggle to figure today’s puzzle out.  Light and breezy!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I stumbled onto an anagram for the answer to this puzzle. From the circled letters, I extracted the word “surprise,” which fit nicely into the second word for the clue/answer. From remaining letters, I got “peer,” which fit into the first slot.

    So came up with “Peer” Surprise as an initial answer before noticing that a slight rearrangement to Pier Pressure made more sense.

    Kind of an interesting one today.

    Keith,

    I think you and Anonymous were taking hits off the same hookah! It most definitely does fit, but not really as the answer to the question. Your guy’s way would be a big stretch. But, I gotta hand it to both of you. I didn’t even see the word “surprise”. Then again, I wasn’t looking for it.

    Peace,
    YUR

    Solution jumped right out at me! However, OPERA was 12 tries before I got it! WHY!? Well, you guys all know why! IT STARTS WITH A STINKIN’ VOWEL! I will calm down now! 🙂 I got lazy and backed into NEPHEW! P.S.-I’m still working on Sunday’s Puzzle, so I’m a little on edge!
