I take care of my flowers and my cats.  And enjoy food.  And that’s living.”   —   Ursula Andress

(She certainly was a hottie in her day!  She’ll always be known by 007 fans as Honey Ryder, in the first Bond movie, Dr. No.  It sounds like she’s mostly enjoying the slower pace of life nowadays.  Good for her!  Be well and do good, friends.  Feel free to click on the Stumbleupon, and other Share things, below the advertisement.  That I can encourage/direct you to click on!)   —   YUR

Jumbler Spoiler – 02/01/12

bad luckVisual Description:  The melancholy Dane . . . in severe pain . . . once again!

Clue/Question:  When the actor broke his leg on-stage, they had to . . .

Answer:  RECAST HIM

(Hey, I like it.  A little heavy on the stereotyping.   The director, dressed in black, a beret AND a goatee!  The ham . . . er actor, staying in character . . . and overly emoting!  But, the actress’ comment is a little misleading.  It’s a theater tradition – based on a little superstition – to encourage each other by saying “break a leg”.  It’s a counter-intuitive way to wish your fellow actor “good luck”, without uttering those forbidden words.  For theater people, saying “good luck” is bad luck!  Dancers – at least ballet dancers – hold the same superstition, but they wish each other “merde“.  All the dance terms in ballet are French words, so wishing each other “merde” – French for “shit” – is their counter-intuitive way of saying “good luck”, without them uttering the forbidden words.  She should have said:  I told him “good luck.”  THAT would have caused him “to suffer the  slings and arrows of outrageous fortune” that befell him!  And, you guys thought that your Unclerave only knows the Jumble and Cryptoquote!  Eh?!?!  So, I’m a bit of a know-it-all.  So, sue me!  LOL!  Huh?  What do opera people say to each other?  Beats the “merde” out of me!  I’ve never performed in an opera before.  No new words again, today.  Great jumbling of the clue words, though.  And, the answer letter layout was a thing of beauty.  I just hope that I don’t ever get “recast”.  Once was enough for this guy!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  You Monty Python fans might enjoy clicking on the underlined and highlighted “merde”, up above!     YUR
