Jumble Spolier – 12/22/11

Visual Description:  Adman pitching an incompletion.


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


(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

    Living in Indianapolis, it’s dangerous to be a Tom Brady fan. But since the Colts aren’t playing this season, I’ll openly cheer on my fellow wolverine. Go Blue!

    OK, OK, I did visit yesterday, but your spoilers weren’t up yet, like the day before. (Maybe I’m getting up earlier on the west coast than you are on the east). Anyway, I always try to visit, not necessarily for the answers to check my own work, but more to read your lively banter. Now, today, I got up later and voila, I found you had posted both Crypto and Jumbles by the time I got to the computer.
    I’ve said it before, but have a very Merry Christmas and an equally Happy New Year! (And don’t you dare think anymore about dropping your webpage!!)

    @ Jeff,

    I like that Indy QB who’s got a name like an Offensive Tackle, or Center, Dan Orlovsky!
