Swallow your pride occasionally.  It’s not fattening.”   —   Frank Tyger

(Yeah, but pride always seems to stick in the throat!  And, it doesn’t always sit in the stomach too well, either.  Be well, do good . . . and try not to be be too proud.  Trust me, it’s not a good thing.  That’s why it’s one of the Seven Deadly Sins.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 01/21/12

English: Village Diner, Red Hook, NY, USA

Image via Wikipedia

Visual Description:  Too much enthusiasm at the diner.

GNAET  =  AGENT,  RTDIH  =  THIRD,  NISGRP  =  SPRING,  MIOENC  =  INCOME   —   Giving us:  GETDIGCE

Clue/Question:  The customer got this after seeing the new omelette on the menu.

Answer:  EGGCITED

(Would this be considered a pun, or more of a sniglet?    I’ve always been a very fussy eater.  I pretty much love everything in most omelettes, but I don’t like them all together.  My kids like those KFC mash potato bowls, but I won’t eat them either.  I likes my foods separate, but equal!  But, I almost always order some kind of eggs when I go to a diner.  It doesn’t matter what time of day it is, I love diner eggs . . . and sausage and/or bacon . . . and home fries.  I highly recommend Hogan’s Diner, in Orangeburg, NY.  Great food, reasonable prices, friendly service.  It just doesn’t look like your traditional diner, as it’s not a stand alone building, but a store front in a shopping plaza/strip mall.  Anyway . . . back to the Jumble.  Two new words, in “third” and “spring”.  And, both were a little surprising.  I also thought that “income” was jumbled extremely well.  The answer letter layout didn’t give anything away, and you got your usual, top-notch cartoon!  Very nice, for a snowy Saturday.  I had to get this from the online version of my newspaper, as my carrier had trouble navigating the roads.  It might be here by now, but I couldn’t wait.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
