(Tough) Jumble Spoiler – 12/01/14

Visual Description:  Taking his lumps.

SOJUT  =  JOUST,  CASEE  =  CEASE,  SCACES  =  ACCESS,  ROCXAB  =  BOXCAR   —   Giving us:  JUTCEESSBOR

Clue/Question:  He didn’t want to talk about his wrestling match loss because it was a – – – 

Answer:  SORE SUBJECT

(I almost put this out there for you guys to solve for me!  I was thinking the first word was either JUST or BOUT.  I wasn’t seeing SORE at all, for a good while.  That’s a testament to a good/tough answer letter layout!  We do have a new clue word today, in “boxcar”.  Great word. ralis95 has got a little work to do updating his clue word database.  All of the jumbles appear to be new today.  The great cartoon finally set me on the answer.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    For me, the bruised wrestler’s request for an ice pack pretty much made SORE a leading candidate for the first secret word. The cartoon is pretty retro; does anybody use ice packs anymore? Is coolant spray legal in rasslin’?
    Yesterday, I wanted to say the last word was UNRICH. That tripped me up for a long time.

    Well, hal. You know you are a puzzle master . . . and all-around smarty pants! The final #s for yesterday were 2516 views, which is about 1200 – 1300 higher than an average day. It looks like a few folk struggled to come up with SORE . . . and then SUBJECT. But, I guess UNRICH proves that you’re only human. But, I doubt you were ever an URCHIN.

    — YUR 😉

    I may have spoken too soon, hal. It looks like my average daily views has grown to about 1600, so that day was only about 900 more views than average.

    — YUR 🙂
