TBROO  =  ROBOT,  KCNHU  =  CHUNK,  CLEDOK  =  LOCKED,  TAREOT  =  ROTATE   —   Giving us:  ROOHNLKOT

Clue/Question:  When Amundsen finally reached the South Pole, all he could do was . . .

Answer:  LOOK NORTH

(Ahh!  This Jumble really hits home.  100 years ago today, Roald Amundsen became the first man to reach the South Pole.  Upon completing this monumental task Amundsen retired to The Bahamas!  Just kidding.  But, could you blame him?  I don’t know what he did next.  Disney Land/World wasn’t around yet, so no one sent him there.  I’m guessing that today’s joke is that: when you stand over the South Pole anyway you look is going to be considered North.  I never really gave it much thought.  Same would hold true if you stood directly over the North Pole.  Any way you look would be considered South.

Fairly challenging puzzle.  “Robot” and “chunk” were easy, but “chunk” seems to be new.  Both “locked” and “rotate” were difficult, but only “locked” is new.  Everything was well jumbled, and the answer letter layout was nicely cryptic.  I like the historically themed puzzles!  They’re a nice change of pace.  “Vaere godt og gjore godt, venner.”  Be well and do good, friends. – in Norwegian . . . sorta)   —   YUR
