Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 01/05/14

Visual Description:  Beefing up at the buffet.

CASIOF  =  FIASCO,  RIDAHO  =  HAIRDO,  TWORGH  =  GROWTH,  VEWLET  =  TWELVE,  SUYMAL  =  ASYLUM,  DETSOM  =  MODEST   —   Giving us:  FCOHIOGOHWEUMODT

Clue/Question:  He struggled to lose weight because he always had – – –

Answer:  WEIGH TOO MUCH FOOD

(Wow, a 16 letter answer!  Pretty impressive.  No new clue words today, but plenty of new jumblings, for yer Uncle!  I’m thinking all the jumblings were new, to me.  I especially liked VEWLET.  It always takes me a minute or two before I consider a spelled out number!  We haven’t had “hairdo” in quite a while.  “Asylum” is always tough for those who have trouble with words that start with vowels.  “Fiasco” is always fun too.  I initially had “growth” wrong!  I wrote in WROGHT – as in WROUGHT – and didn’t even catch it until I solved the answer, despite having an additional W and T, and lacking a G and the all important H.  Even so, I thought the answer letter layout was splendid.  Nothing was given away there, even with my errors.  It’s a little strange having the word WEIGH in the answer, when the word WEIGHT was in the clue/question, but I guess the quotation marks just gave it away for me.  Tons of fun!  I know I eat way too much, myself.  I’m going to need to start dieting, some day soon!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Sorry, buddy! My typo. I need to replace the T in the jumble I posted with a Y. Good catch! — YUR 🙂

    A good Sunday puzzle. Puzzled me for almost two days!. Yes, asylum was a bugger! And so many letters to solve the puzzle, with the dreaded ” ” …. but I got it! Good one. Thank you!

    Haven’t seen such a difficult Jumble in awhile. For the longest time I had only solved one word! Came back to it the next day, whereupon “hairdo” jumped out at me instantly. Love it when that happens. Sometimes I try to look at the scrambled word in its totality, and just kind of relax my mind, and sometimes I’ll get it that way.
