Jumble Spoiler – 10/20/12

English: It’ll never get off the ground Because the overnight mooring ropes are still attached. It looks like it’s going to be a splendid day for ballooning! (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Visual Description:  Not exactly soaring, but technically they are ballooning.

VEEKO  =  EVOKE,  ZALPA  =  PLAZA,  MACSUP  =  CAMPUS,  REEPIX  =  EXPIRE   —   Giving us:  KEPPUE

Clue/Question:  They had no chance of winning the balloon race because they couldn’t . . .

Answer:  KEEP UP

(They need . . . Viagra???  Oh, I guess that would be keep IT up.  Oh, well!  It looks like these lard-asses could use all the help they could get.  Oh, and before those cards and letters come flying in, I know that Ballooning and Soaring are two separate sports.  I was just using poetic license.  Just trying to spice things up a bit.  Pretty simple answer, today.  However, all the clue words were jumbled well, and we even have two new words in “plaza” and “expire”.  It looks like ralis95 has some more clue word database work to attend to!  No point in commenting about the answer letter layout today!  Nice drawing though.  Hey, Jeff!  How ’bout dem Tigers?  I’m hoping that the Giants can come back against the Cards, but if the Cards should prevail I’ll probably root for the Tigers in the Series!  Wimpy’s dumb-ass Yankees – management – let stupid pride get in the way.  Ask me about it and we’ll discuss it in the comments!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Français : Plaque apposée au n° 1 bis de la rue Vaneau, Paris 7 e . « André Gide, né à Paris le 22 novembre 1869, habita cette maison de 1926 jusqu’à sa mort, le 19 février 1951. » (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

(I’m sorry.  What was he saying?  Very clever, because it’s very true.  My grand hope is that some recycled nonsense that I’ve spewed here will – someday – be attributed to me, as something “original”.  Hey!  It could happen!  I actually stumbled a little on today’s quote.  For a while I had the G as an M!  I’m looking at the author’s first name, and I’m saying: ANDME?  Who the heck has a name like ANDME???  I was working on the silly assumption that the fifth word was BECOME!  Luckily, there were plenty of other words in the cryptoquote to set me straight!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
