Friday the 13th Jumble Spoiler – April, 2012

I took this picture of Lilith, a black cat fou...

I took this picture of Lilith, a black cat found as a kitten in a supermarket parking lot. Feel free to share this image, but leave "Lilith" in the file name, please! (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Visual Description:  Even though we’ve codified it and ritualized it, superstition still thrives as . . . superstition.

ODORP  =  DROOP,  ONNKW  =  KNOWN,  YULDOC  =  CLOUDY,  KUENTJ  =  JUNKET   —   Giving us:  DOOKOWNCODNKE

Clue/Question:  When he talked about his new furniture business, he did this.

Answer:  KNOCKED ON WOOD

(I sure hope none of my readers suffer from Triskaidekaphobia, because you . . . Hey, look!  It’s a black cat!  Just kidding.  I think it’s hilarious that so many people are still so superstitious.  A cat’s a cat.  A crack in the sidewalk is just a crack.  And, a broken mirror is just dangerous garbage.  Be careful cleaning it up, but throw it out and move on with your life.  Four leaf clovers?  Yeah, fairly rare . . . but that’s about it.  Lucky pennies?  They kind of come in handy, when you pay for things . . . especially things that carry sales tax.  But, what can you buy with a single penny these days?  I’m sure most of you know the old line/gag about the “lucky” rabbit’s foot.  It wasn’t very lucky for the rabbit!  But, fearing numbers???  You’ve got to be kidding me!  There are just so many superstitions out there, but when you dissect and examine them, they all break down into nonsense.  The only ones I can think of that have any practical application are:  walking under a ladder – it can be a safety issue, and three on a match – but only if you’re in a shooting war.  Luck, good or bad, is merely happenstance.  Things won’t make good things happen, or prevent bad things from happening.  Now, if you’ll excuse me, it’s time for me to tend to my Jade plant.

13 letters in today’s answer!  I don’t think that was by accident.  However, there were no new clue words today.  None of them presented a challenge to me, but they were jumbled nicely.  The answer letter layout gave nothing away . . . again, which is always a good thing.  The furniture maker looks a little like someone, but not enough to say with confidence.  I ‘spose Jeff will say something if it is a someone.  Be well and do good friends.  Hopefully, it will come back to you.)   —   YUR

    YUR:

    Keep posting your spoiler comments on FB – I like it! As for today’s Jumble, the solutions to each of the words jumped off the page as I read them and the Jumble solution did the same, almost before I read the cartoon caption. All the neurons were firing in sequence this morning on this one – and that’s great since it doesn’t happen often. I’m sooooo glad you’re back on track and showing your old enthusiasm! Keep it up and stay away from black cats!

    Thanks, bro! I loves the black kitties! I’m more of a dog-man, in my old age, but I had all sorts of cats growing up. Just like with people, ya can’t judge a book by it’s cover.

    I have the fear of 13!!! I try to stay inside on Friday the Thirteenths (sp). Puzzle was pretty easy today! Yesterday went pretty well, for I only went out in the morning! My husband, firefighter, was working! I worried all day! Cute, black cat picture up there, YUR! I’m not afraid of them!

    I did have a bit of a time with the words — my pistons failed totally today…but I did get the words and the puzzle. Obviously, still catching up! I thought about it being Friday the 13th last Friday, but it was such a beautiful day I figured that I’d not think about it!
