(Like . . . totally!  A new fur would be . . . bitchin’!  We all need to be a little more understanding of Donald.  It’s V. Stiviano who made him say those things.  Yeah, that’s right.  She uses mind control.  Wake up, Donald!  I saw that television series:  V.  She might look like a hot babe, but she’s really an alien, dude!  She wants to eat you!  And, not in a pleasurable way!  Hey, if it were Morena Baccarin, instead of V. Stiviano, I would probably say, or do, A N Y T H I N G.  Now, THAT girl is HOT.  This V. Stiviano isn’t in the same league . . . same area code . . . same solar system as Morena Baccarin.  Morena Baccarin can make me . . . write bad Jumble Spoilers!

There were no new clue words in today’s Jumble, by David L. Hoyt and Jeff Knurek.  All the jumblings were though, and they were all fairly challenging.  I always have a little difficulty in unwinding “opera”, and I almost went “fungle”, which I guess would be a fungus you catch in the jungle, if it were an actual word.  Maybe we could dig up Rich Hall, and he could list it as a Sniglet.  The answer letter layout vas vunderbar!  Das ist goot!  DAB ist goot bier!  I must be really out there today.  Zemanta just gave me the message:  “Sorry, we didn’t find any new articles for the text you’re writing . . .”  C’mon, puppies!  Keep up.  The cartoon was beautiful.  Loads of detail.  The dog is looking at the fur coat as if:  Oh my God, I know that guy!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR  😉

PS.  Only Eskimos should wear fur coats!   —   YUR

An angel’s arm can’t snatch me from the grave; legions of angels can’t confine me there.”   —   Edward Young

(Our first Edward Young quote!  Anybody up on their early 18th Century poetry?  This is a line from his Night-Thoughts, but I can’t tell if he’s talking about actual death, or dreams, or . . .  This cryptoquote took me a while to get.  “AN” and “ME” are not all that common.  Starting with three words beginning with A was also a little unusual.  I don’t know what I would have done if I didn’t spot “the” and “there”.  I really had to go letter by letter with this one.  Great challenge.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
