Jumble Spoiler(?) – 04/12/12

1962 Ford Thunderbird Hardtop

Visual Description:  Jeff Knurek, murdering The Beach Boys.


Clue/Question:  When the Jumble artist went for a drive, he did this.

Answer:  ????  ???  ?????  SANG CAR TUNES  (Today’s Unclerave Wiseguy of the Day winner is Frank Witzel, with his crack about the groan not coming from the ’62 T-bird!  Nice going, Frank!  Thanks to everyone who played along!)   —   YUR

(Another 12 letter answer?  A silly pun??  And, an expertly crafted answer letter layout???  What can all that mean?  It means that it’s time for another installment of the Unclerave Wiseguy of the Day Contest!  YAY!!!  Who said Boo?  Why, I oughta . . . Okay, guys.  Same *rules* as last time.  The first one with the correct answer is not necessarily the winner.  You have to have the correct answer AND some kind of relevant wisecrack.  It can be aimed at the Jumble itself, either one/both of the creators – Jeff Knurek and David L. Hoyt – or at yours truly.  Try to stay away from profanity, please.

For the record, none of the clue words were new, today.  However, they were all nicely jumbled.  I know it’s a little late in the day for a contest, but I kinda got into a cleaning jag.  Now my hands smell like Tilexbleach – and I’m feeling a little light-headed.  Time to hit the showers, I guess.  Be well, do good and make sure you’re in a well-ventilated area, when using funky household cleaning products!)   —   YUR 

PS.  When I was a kid, my Gramma owned a ’62 Thunderbird!  It was either this color, or a little lighter shade.  Cool car!  It was kinda like Ford’s Mustang . . . before they came out with the Mustang.   —   YUR

    “Sang Car Tunes”. When I first started driving, and before my city adopted a no-talking-on-your-cell-phone law, I used to hold my phone up to my ear and sing along with the radio. Now I just belt them out and don’t care who I entertain or how much I embarrass myself.

    Does solving the answer via your FB posting, count?

    The answer is he sang car tunes…. Or cartoons, depending on how you look at it

    No, ralis95. I think I need to set up a dedicated Unclerave Facebook page for that. I’d rather not have this stuff going to the other one.

    Does “sang car tunes” qualify with this cartoon character? Can’t think of wisecracks.

    Everybody knows Jeff “sang car tunes”! I especially like the “J” logo on the grille!
    BTW, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival features the Beach Boys 50th Anniversary Reunion on Apr 27th!

    That one was a toughie today. How about the solution in Pig Latin:
    Ang-say Ar-cay Unes-tay.

    I always liked it how “Trash” in Pig Latin was “Ashtray,” but I digress. Keep up the good work YUR.

    Heh! I’m back after a long break! Did ya miss me? Ha! Mom and I had a wonderful cruise to Grand Cayman, Cozumel, Roatan, and Costa Maya from Fort Lauderdale. It was an 80th birthday present to her 3 years early! Clue words came pretty quickly to my rusty brain, but the solution was a bit harder until I got the SANG part! I love old cars! I have beach brain still, so sorry, no guess for the Wiseguy Contest.

  20. 21 Rick April 12, 2012 at 4:45 pm

    I’m stumped Unc. I know the answer – it wasn’t that hard, but trying to be snarky with it ….. I’ll leave that to people with more creative minds.


  21. 22 unclerave April 12, 2012 at 5:10 pm

    Of course you were missed, Lesley! Welcome back!

    I like that cartoon. Yes, I did know that the Beach Boys were reuniting this year. That’s why I chose that tune. Plus it only made sense for the puzzle. Great job all!
