Jumble Spoiler – 05/04/12

Creative Cause for the Derby Win!

Visual Description:  A Stuart Smalley wannabe?

COLAF  =  FOCAL,  CEELT  =  ELECT,  FINNAT  =  INFANT,  WABREE  =  BEWARE   —   Giving us:  FOCECFATEWA

Clue/Question:  When he talked to himself in the mirror, he talked to himself . . .

Answer:  FACE – “TWO” – FACE

(A little strange?  Hmm!  Whatever.  Good jumbling of the clue words.  The five letter words were harder than the six letter words, today.  And, surprisingly, both “focal” and “elect” are new to the ralis95 clue word database.  The answer letter layout coulda been better, but it wasn’t horrendously obvious.  I woulda switched the clue words around.  The cartoon got the point across.  But, I don’t think too many were baffled by today’s entry.  Ehh!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  If you’re looking for a horse to root for in tomorrow’s Kentucky Derby, you couldn’t do much better than Creative Cause.  He might not win, but he should be in the money.   Nice story.  Gotta love them grays!  —   YUR

    I was confused on the answer to the puzzle. The saying the guy is giving while looking in the mirror is from an SNL character right? I just don’t get it? Is it Tommy Lee Jones? I’m so lost. Consider me slow today.

    I think it was just a weak effort, Mike. It definitely was not Two-Face, from that Batman movie. I don’t know what they were thinking. It could have been simply FACE TO FACE, no hyphens, and that would have made more sense. Maybe Jeff will chime in with some clarification.

    I liked it! There are two faces there. And two words starting with vowels — usually throw me for a minute or two.
