A cynic is a person searching for an honest man, with a stolen lantern.”   —   Edgar Shoaff

(Why waste your precious oil on a fools errand?  Use somebody else’s damn lantern!  This guy, Shoaff, he’s like a tamale . . . wrapped in a burrito . . . inside a gordita!  A man of mystery.  Nuttin’ on him, I could find!  I guess he vants to be left alone!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – (Pi Day) 03/14/12

Cartoon -- Heckle & Jeckle  ...  Rowan & Marti...

Cartoon -- Heckle & Jeckle ... Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In Clip #3 Goldie explains it all. (Photo credit: marsmet481)

Visual Description:  Jeff Knurek projecting his March Madness dream.

MEOPT  =  TEMPO,  SUGET  =  GUEST,  CHEELK  =  HECKLE,  TNELAG  =  TANGLE   —   Giving us:  MUSHKTNE

Clue/Question:  He did this to the other team when he made so many baskets.

Answer:  SUNK THEM

(I think this one might generate a few more visits/hits than the last few days.  This might have been a good one to string you guys along with, but I guess I’m not in that kind of mood today.  Lucky you.  This one gets high marks, from yer uncle, across the board today.  No new clue words.  Stand down, ralis95!  No odd, or super tough words, but they were all well jumbled.  I liked “heckle” the best.  I’m a big Heckle and Jeckle fan!  Yes, I always loved them talking magpies!  The answer letter layout was nice and cryptic.  No giveaways whatsoever.  I can just see Jeff, back in high school and college, drawing sports cartoons for his school newspaper.  Likely, some of the happiest days of his life.  The Detroit boy is no doubt rooting for Michigan to beat the other “Ohio” team, maybe as some kind of revenge for losing to  Ohio State . . . by 22 points.  Ouch!  However, they’re facing the very hot, very capable, University of Ohio Bobcats, so they’ve got to – resurrect and – bring their A-game to Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.  On paper, it should be a Wolverine blowout, but stranger things have happened in the tournament.  This should be a fairly competitive game.  A little more interesting than Ohio State v. Loyola, anyway.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
