Visual Description:  Lois and Clark, the domestic years.


Clue/Question:  After seeing how wrinkled his suit was, Superman would become this.

Answer:  IRON MAN

(Pretty easy, for former geeky teenagers, who have never – really – fully grown up!  But, for those with more sophisticated dispositions, this could have been a bit of a puzzler.  Come to think of it, the majority of these Jumbles have a decidedly masculine slant to them.  Works out for us he-man, macho typesthat’s right, baby – but not exactly respectable to the fairer sex, and those who might be a tad more intellectual than doofuses, like yer uncle.  I think Jeff and David need to tap those feminine resources, better known as their better halves, to come up with some more womanly themed puzzles.  What do you say, ladies?  Do you want to occasionally see a softer side to the Jumble???  Ones where you can *get them* almost immediately, but you know most guys are going be scratching their heads for a while?  Speak now, or forever hold your peace!

None of today’s clue words were new, but they were all jumbled well.  I almost had to back into “onward”, but it didn’t quite come to that.  The answer letter layout was good enough.  It could have been just a little better, but I don’t think it gave anything away.  Moreover, the cartoon was very amusing.  That’s it, kids.  Be well and do good, my friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I always thought that that Teri Hatcher was a Hot Box of Rocks, ever since I first saw her in Lois and Clark.  Never watched that Desperate Housewives nonsense, though.  Way too chicky for me!   —   YUR

    Unclerave, I don’t consider you a doofus & I would like to see softer side puzzles occasionally. But not if they’re easier when they’re softer! Don’t leave us, uncle! BW&DG! BetC

    Ohhh, I can be a MAJOR doofus! Just ask my kids. In print, I can make it seem like I know what I’m talking about, but that is mainly an illusion.

    I think the occasional less masculo-centered Jumble would be a breath of fresh air! Softer does not have to mean easier, even for the female readers.

    Thanks for caring, BetC!

    OK, I figured out the answer right away when I read the puzzle. BUT, I had trouble with onward—and bison hit all of the sudden. When I’m struggling, I’m always so sure it is some diabolical word! Then it ends up being so easy!

    I always liked Teri Hatcher in the camera commercials!
