Cryptoquote Spolier – 12/22/11

 

English: The Portrait of Giuseppe Verdi Azərba...

Oh, blessed a thousand times the peasant who is born, eats and dies without anybody bothering about his affairs.”   —   Giuseppe Verdi

(One of my favorite composers, but a bit of an out-of-touch, whiny little bitch!  At least as it pertains to this comment.  It’s a little like a Kardashian complaining about the paparazzi.  It’s quite likely that those blessed peasants rarely had enough to eat, and lived much shorter – and much more difficult – lives than he.  Be well, do good, and consider those less fortunate, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spolier – 12/22/11

Visual Description:  Adman pitching an incompletion.

SOJIT  =  JOIST,  FDYFA  =  DAFFY,  SLTUCP  =  SCULPT,  PPEMIL  =  PIMPLE   —   Giving us:  ISDASUTPPE

Clue/Question:  The quarterback did this after being presented with the endorsement deal.

Answer:  PASSED IT UP

(Much better, today!  Though NOT a new word, “joist” is not a word most of use very often.  Not unless you’re a carpenter, or something.  Surprisingly, both “pimple” and “daffy” are new to the database.  “Sculpt” is a great word, but fairly obvious, considering there are five consonants and only one vowel, and that vowel is a U.  Perhaps it could have been jumbled better.  Tough call.  The answer letter layout didn’t give anything away, and that’s always a welcome sight.  I’m betting that a good number of you had to work some to get today’s answer.  Not like yesterday’s.  Yesterday I had the fewest weekday visits that I can remember.  Which is a little strange, because I’ve seen a significant increase in my subscriptions.  I’m up about 25% since October.  Maybe it’s the wind up to Christmas crunch time?  Maybe there’s a newer jumble spoiler site out there??  Maybe some have just lost interest?  It bears watching.  If this is the beginning of a trend I may have to consider shutting this blog down.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I’d rather feature “Mighty Mouse” than “Tom Terrific”.  Besides, Flutie Flakes set the trend for these kind of sponsored products.      YUR
