Jumble Spoiler – 10/25/14

Visual Description:  A gathering of galactic gazers.

WEEJL  =  JEWEL,  BEATA  =  ABATE,  SLINAD  =  ISLAND,  POREDW  =  POWDER   —   Giving us:  JLBATSLOER

Clue/Question:  The astronomer was very good at his work.  He did a – – –

Answer:  STELLAR JOB

(Excellent pun!  Nothing cheap or stinky about it.  There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles appear to be new.  This is one of the best answer letter layouts David L. Hoyt has ever come up with, in my opinion.  It’s a fantastic jumble that doesn’t give a thing away.  Love the cartoon too.  Besides the great telescope, and the three scientists, Jeff snuck in an odd, but rather innocuous, smiling bimbo in the background.  Great job, guys!  Finally caught up with the spoilers, guys.  But, I’ll probably miss some spoilers next weekend too.  Fair warning.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/25/14

I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.”   —   Henry David Thoreau

(Just watch out for that stem!  And, hopefully it’s not a cold . . . or wet pumpkin.  I’m finally caught up, guys!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Half the times when men think they are talking business, they are wasting time.”   —   E. W. Howe

Jumble Spoiler – 10/20/14

Visual Description:  Bopped on top by a pop.

TARFD  =  DRAFT,  FYCAN  =  FANCY,  YIELLK  =  LIKELY,  HURCOS  =  CHORU  —   Giving us:  DTFNIKORS

Clue/Question:  Getting hit in the head with the can of soda hurt a lot, in spite of it being a – – –

Answer:  SOFT DRINK

(Ahh!  The perils of the picnic.  No new clue words, but all of the jumbles appear to be new.  For some reason I had to back into “chorus”.  I guess it was just a good jumble.  The answer letter layout is nicely cryptic . . . another fine jumble.  Super cartoon.  It’s funny how different parts of the country have different collective names for soft drinks.  I grew up calling it “pop”, but for the last 30 + years I’ve called it “soda”.  Some places in the South say “Coke” for just about all soft drinks.  What are you used to calling your “sody pop”, pilgrims???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
