Thanksgiving Jumble – November 27, 2014

Visual Description:  Late-night left-overs!

KYREP  =  PERKY,  BITUC  =  CUBIT,  CROOTD  =  DOCTOR,  SHULBE  =  BUSHEL   —   Giving us:  KYCTDORUEL

Clue/Question:  He wanted to stop overeating, but he couldn’t quit – – –

Answer:  COLD TURKEY

(An excellent – and apropos – pun!  Thanksgiving leftovers can be better than the meal itself.  We always make a ton of stuffing, just so we can have plenty for the leftovers.  I hope everybody is having/going to have a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Try to remember others who may be far away, on this very grateful day.

No new clue words today.  All the jumbles seemed new to me though.  The answer letter layout was expertly crafted, and the cartoon was drawn with much care.  Be well and do good, my friends.  Happy Thanksgiving!)   —   YUR

    Happy Thanksgiving Unc……Had trouble with Cubit..Had to back In and than look up meaning in Dictionary….
    Cubit. an ancient linear unit based on the length of the forearm, from elbow to the tip of the middle finger, usually from 17 to 21 inches (43 to 53 cm). But you probably already knew that already… GO BILLS..(almost December and we are still relevant) Big game against Browns Sunday…BILLIEVE…. Enjoy the rest of your evening…Your Favorite nephew….WIMPY

    LOL! WIMPY, you gotta be kidding me! All I knew about a cubit is that it was a measurement from biblical times. And, even most of that point of reference comes from the old Bill Cosby routine on Noah’s dubious first encounter with the voice of God. “Right! . . . What’s a cubit?” Great stuff. So sorry to hear about all these skanky allegations. As someone who hates the court of public opinion, I say that he’s innocent until proven guilty.

    The Browns tripped up the Bills last year. I think we were winning that game though until E.J. got himself injured. If Orton plays a decent game, and Hackett doesn’t call for some stupid college-minded plays, we should be able to beat the Browns.

    PS. Hopefully, Hackett has learned the value of Frank Summers in short yardage situations.

    I remember that Cosby reference. It also popped into my mind. I actually owned the Cosby album that routine was on. I think maybe it also had some Fat Albert material.
