(Slightly? Delayed) Jumble Spoiler – 03/06/12

Bad Pun #4

Bad Pun #4 (Photo credit: Gangles87)

Visual Description:  Our old two friends, trying to visualize an upcoming Jumble.

OGLAN  =  ALONG,  CHYSP  =  PSYCH  =  NUYLUR  =  UNRULY,  INDREN  =  DINNER   —   Giving us:  ONGPYHUUNNE

Clue/Question:  He refused to draw the Jumble cartoon because the idea behind it wasn’t this.

Answer:  PUNNY ENOUGH

(First time, in a long time, that the two five letter words were tougher to get than the two six letter words!  And, oddly enough, they are both new to the ralis95 clue word database.  I had the hardest time getting “along” – and my Kindergarten teacher said that I played so well with others – and I saw “psych” right away, but I couldn’t believe it was an eligible word.  It IS in the dictionary, but it’s actually more of an abbreviation/root word than a stand alone word.  I’m sure that purists are up in arms, but like I said, it’s in the dictionary.  If they’re allowing “psych” then maybe they should not allow “along”, because the letters also spell ANGLO.  Hmm!?!  Everything was well jumbled and the answer letter layout was nice and cryptic . . . the way that diehards prefer!  Dave looks like quite the goofus in today’s cartoon, while Jeff is taking charge of the situation.  Looking at the # of visits, as I signed on this afternoon, it looks like a number of you had some difficulty with today’s puzzle.  That’s kind of funny, because we often discuss the punnyness of the answer.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Even I have to acknowledge that the pun in the photo is extremely bad!   —   YUR

    Weird, but I flew through this puzzle! As for PSYCH, it’s a great word, and probably very accepted today as a “real” word. Perhaps an adjective and verb?

    I’m sorry, but “accepted” is simply not *acceptable*! LOL! 😉

    OMGoodness, I had trouble w/along too. When I have trouble w/a word, I always think it must be some hard, diabolical word. Figured psych–love the show– right away but had trouble spelling. My 1st thought was ‘really?’ I am obviously behind on my puzzles.

    Linda,

    The best scrambled words DO usually end up being the simplest words! I like the show “Psych”, I just have a problem with it being a legitimate, stand alone word. “Psyche” – no problem, but “psych” is just a semi-legitimized shortcut word, in my book. But, it’s part of the vernacular, and it’s now in the dictionary, so Imajuspissinindawind!

    Tania,

    I first thought the Fs might have been Ss. Then I got the idea that the first word (and the fifth) might end in “ing”. That’s when “growing” came to me. The rest just fell into place after that.
