SHUYK  =  HUSKY,  DUOIA  =  AUDIO,  BLERAR  =  BARREL,  MOFHAT  =  FATHOM   —   Giving us:  HSAURRLATH

Clue/Question:  For the graduating college cheerleader this game was her . . .

Answer:  LAST HURRAH

(Well . . . “hurrah” is a cheer.  It’s just not the kind of cheer you hear from a college cheerleader.  You don’t even hear the “rah” very often anymore.  The old stereotype of:  RAH! RAH! SIS-BOOM-BAH! doesn’t really fly these days.  That was probably born in the 1920s.  Slightly before your uncle’s time.  Hurrah is more the For he’s a jolly good fellow kind of cheer.  Hurrah is also a little more British.  Americans are more fond of Hurray.  Which makes it kind of strange that the WordPress spell-check feature is questioning hurrah.  WordPress is out of England, so you’d think it would allow it without question.  However, their spell-check even flags the word WordPress!  So, go figure!

Good clue words.  I like “fathom”.  I don’t use that word enough.  I can’t fathom why?!?!  Surprisingly “audio” is not on the ralis95 clue word database.  The answer letter layout was only fair, today.  The “last” is spread out pretty well, but I could see the “hurrah” pretty clearly.  Now, gee.  What is that school that Jeff went to?  Was it Maryland?  Minnesota?  Mississippi?  Missouri?  Montana?  Did I leave anybody out?)   —   YUR

PS.   A big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Mr. Gene Wilder!  He is one of my favorite actors, who has been in some of the funniest/most entertaining movies of all time!  Enjoy your day, Gene.  (I can’t believe you’re actually older than my mom!)   —   YUR
