(Cute) Jumble Spoiler – 01//24/12

Traditional Fish 'n' Chips

Image via Wikipedia

Visual Description:  High stakes gambling, in the briny deep!

FHAWR  =  WHARF,  KRICT  =  TRICK,  SLIDEH  =  SHIELD,  PUCRES  =  SPRUCE   —   Giving us:  HFICSHISP

Clue/Question:  The underwater casino featured . . .

Answer:  FISH AND CHIPS

(FANTASTIC!  A fun little pun, with just a hint of misdirection.  I didn’t find any of the clue words difficult, but they were all jumbled well.  And, “shield” is new to the clue word database.  The answer letter layout is good, but with only the two “I”s the answer wasn’t hard to get.  I like the menacing face of the card shark, and the startled expression on the blowfish – aka the puffer fish!  Sponge Bob fans will recognize Patrick Star – the starfish – playing one of the slot machines in the background.  Not a tough Jumble, but a lot of fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Day 2 of my strict diet and you show fish and chips! Oh, I’m dying! Anyway, I was laughing the entire time I did this puzzle: funny blow fish expression, zipped through all words except SPRUCE, and Patrick in background! Being a beachy gal, I give this puzzle a 10!
