Jumble Spoiler – 11/24/12

A Christmas Story House

Visual Description:  David L. Hoyt, in some strange parody of “A Christmas Story.”

NOION  =  ONION,  TECAN  =  ENACT,  LUDEMO  =  MODULE,  WLFOOL  =  FOLLOW   —   Giving us:  ONTMDELW

Clue/Question:  When her freezer stopped working, she had a . . .

Answer:  MELTDOWN

(Not bad.  No new clue words again, but the jumbling of the words was great.  I really liked “enact” and “module”.  Good job on the answer letter layout, as well!  The cartoon puts me in mind of “A Christmas Story”, when the father goes to plug in his lady-leg-lamp, with the frilly lamp shade.  “It’s a major award!”  The extension plug(s) is/are jam-packed with all these other plugs.  And, of course, when he turns on the lamp he blows a fuse!  I think he had two or three five-way adapters plugged into that one, sorry little outlet.  That movie is must-see holiday fare!  Even more-so than “It’s a Wonderful Life”!  Be well and do good, friends.  Christmas is coming fast!)   —   YUR

    We’ll see, McGee!

    Peter Schrager, of FOX Sports, has picked Buffalo, citing their high-priced defense finally waking up! Sure, he’s in the minority on this, but us Bills fans will take any positive buzz we can get!

    — YUR Go BILLS!

    As an aside — when traveling for Thanksgiving, I found that Love’s (a gas/truck/everything shopping world) actually has the lady-leg-lamps for sale!!! Unc, you can stock up for Christmas!

    I did enjoy this puzzle.
