Cryptoquote Spoiler – 02/16/12

Ludwig Wittgenstein #3The limits of my language are the limits of my mind.  All I know is what I have words for.”   —   Ludwig Wittgenstein

(Sometimes, I feel like I do actually know more, but I just can’t find the words to express it.  Language is so important, and can be so powerful.  I think that I am an amateur philosopher of language.  I think it’s pretty clear that Bill Clinton considers himself one, as well!  Be well, do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Bob's Yer Uncle

Bob's Yer Uncle (Photo credit: Andrea Marutti)

Visual Description:  Hitting awfully close to home, guys.

TAHIF  =  FAITH,  FRASC  =  SCARF,  RECCAS  =  SCARCE,  FLAWEF  =  WAFFLE   —   Giving us:  ASRSCLE

Clue/Question:  Careless drivers can end up . . .

Answer:  CARLESS

(For the record, my car woes are all mechanical issues, stemming from all of my cars being over 10 years old.  Yer Uncle is very CAR-FULL, and hasn’t had any kind of accident in over 5 years.  There.  Now that THAT little indignity is out of the way, here’s the puzzle critique.  The only clue word that I had any difficulty with happens to be the word that is new to the ralis95 clue word database, “scarce”.  “Scarf” was almost backwards, and I always look to pair double consonants together, so “waffle” was a piece of cake.  “Faith”?  I just saw it . . . like a light coming down from the heavens.  It reached out to me, shook me and screamed:  Do you believe???  I said:  Yeah, sure . . . whatever.  The answer letter layout was great, for such a short answer.  Great cartoon.  What’s up with “POI”, Knurek?  This is at least the second time you’ve snuck this in.  Are you a fan of Person of Interest, or is there some other meaning?  That’s it, folks.  Be well and do good.)   —   YUR

PS.  I’m not that heavy, and I haven’t worn any kind of beard in years, too!  LOL!      YUR
