Jumble Spoiler – 01/10/13

Visual Description:  Kirk and Picard arguing in a hot-air balloon.

FITHS  =  SHIFT,  NOWEM  =  WOMEN,  CARPIY  =  PIRACY,  RELYCE  =  CELERY   —   Giving us:  SHFTWONRAEE

Clue/Question:  The balloon was ascending perfectly, but the squabbling operators were going . . . 

Answer:  NOWHERE FAST

(What is this?  A little misdirection?  I don’t get the connection.  Two Star Fleet Commanders – from different generations – going nowhere fast . . . in a hat-air balloon???  Is this a new direction?  Instead of loading us with little bonus clues, now you’re actually going to purposely make them more challenging?  I mean, I get the pun.  But, that would have worked with any two operators.  What is your old uncle missing here.  Can anyone explain to me the Star Trek connection?

By the way, no new clue words.  Decent, but not too tough jumblings.  Pretty impressive answer letter layout.  And, some good likenesses of Stewart and Shatner.  Have the guys decided to make things more challenging, or has my nerd quotient dropped a few points?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —  YUR

(Not sure if this is the bandleader, or the motivational speaker.  Either way, it’s truthful, if not pretty obvious.  But, sometimes we need the obvious to smack us in the face.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
