Jumble Spoiler – 03/22/13

St Andrews, Scotland, "home of Golf".

Visual Description:  Our heroes at the golf links!

WARLC  =  CRAWL,  ONDUM  =  MOUND,  PEERRF  =  PREFER,  POMSIE  =  IMPOSE   —   Giving us:  CALOUNREEMOSE

Clue/Question:  After finishing the 18th hole, they stopped to eat a . . .

Answer:  ONE-COURSE MEAL

(Wouldn’t fish AND chips constitute a two-course meal???  I guess it’s because they just played the course.  The singular course.  At St. Andrews?  Not as loopy as yesterday’s, but a little out there!  No new clue words.  No real head scratchers.  I thought the answer letter layout was the saving grace.  I liked the cartoon, too.  Classic sinking sailboat on the horizon.  The sea-side golf course.  The little Scotsman.  Put it all together and it’s a little strange . . . but cute.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Too big a clue, Don. Look at Art’s and the anonymous clues. That’s what I was looking for. Just a leg up, not an entitlement package.

    And, Anonymous from Nashville . . . c’mon, bub! If you can solve a cryptoquote you have to be able to read. If you want to show off . . . then start your own blog. Geez Louise!

    Often the answer comes before even dealing with the words. Sometimes not. But this answer was particularly lame.

    Well, impose took a few…dastardly vowel beginning words! And I had to work on the puzzle. I studied it — didn’t get the Scotland reference, not that it would have made a difference. Saw the sinking sail boat, and was thinking maybe there was a clue there. Finally wrote down all of the golf references I could think of…course hit, but had to figure out why. You know, these puzzles, most of the time, just don’t come, I do have to work for them! I thought it was cute and puzzling! Thanks Unc!

    Heh, LindaLee, you suffer from the same ailment as me: that annoying vowel-starting-word symdrome. I did get IMPOSE rather quickly, though, this time. MOUND made me crazy again. YUR, didn’t we just have that recently? GOLF? Any cartoon that has golf in it, I will love! I’m ready!

    Looks like I’m in good company Lesley!
