Cryptoquote Spoiler – 01/06/12

 

Today, give a stranger one of your smiles.I’m very comfortable discussing my personal life, because it’s so boring.”   —   Daniel Radcliffe

(Yawwwwnnn!  Actually, it’s so boring that it’s not worth commenting on.  Okay, okay.  It does show a healthy level of humility that you rarely find with “movie stars”.  And it is mildly amusing.  However, I prefer today’s Thought for Today:  A little learning is not a dangerous thing to one who does not mistake it for a great deal.      William Allen White

Now this I like, because it’s a twist on the old axiom:  A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.  I think old Bill was more correct.  It’s not that modicum of knowledge that is of concern, it’s how the individual perceives and uses that knowledge.  None of us arrives at knowledge.  There’s always going to be someone who knows more, and there’s always going to be more to know.  So, a little circumspection and humility is always in order.  Hey, humility!  We kind of worked our way back to Daniel Radcliffe’s quote!  Be well, do good . . . and don’t get a big head.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  Why yo momma don’t want you hangin’ ’round no pool halls!

YOPPP  =  POPPY,  TEANK  =  TAKEN,  KICLEF  =  FICKLE,  CIDIAC  =  ACIDIC   —   Giving us:  OPPTKEIKCC

Clue/Question:  He would later find out that he was playing pool with one.

Answer:  A PICKPOCKET

(Today’s puzzle is much more of a visual one than the usual play on words.  Although, I’m sure the argument would be that in most games of billiards you are required to call your shot.  Also know as pick your pocket.  If you’re like me, most of the bald characters Jeff Knurek draws remind you of David L. Hoyt.  Maybe it’s Jeff’s little way of needling David?  Hmm!  I was surprised to find that “acidic” is not on the ralis95 database.  I don’t keep any record of such things, but I’m almost certain the word, under a different scrambling perhaps, has been seen before.  I know our man ralis95 is as diligent as they come, but things happen.  Regardless, I’m sure that it will be added.  Maybe it’s been used since I received my copy, back in late November.  Who knows?  The answer letter layout was good and cryptic today.  I liked the little pay slot on the pool table!  I only just noticed it.  I appreciate the little details.  Be well and do good, friends.  And remember: Trouble with a capital “T”, And that rhymes with “P” and that stands for pool!  Watch out for pickpockets!)   —   YUR
