Jumble Spoiler – 12/03/14

Visual Description:  The soft, medium and hard/firm sell.

SERDS  =  DRESS,  FUNTI  =  UNFIT,  DREEEG  =  DEGREE,  BARBOS  =  ABSORB   —   Giving us:  RSSUTDEEASR

Clue/Question:  He asked if the mattress came with a warranty, and the salesman told him he could – – – 

Answer:  REST ASSURED

(A little corny.  A little predictable.  But, I liked the jumbling of the clue words.  All but the one for “unfit” are new, from what I could see.  None of the clue words are new though.  I really like “absorb”, and I had to back into “degree”!  I just was not seeing it this morning.  The answer letter layout would have been tougher had both sets of words had been switched.  UTRSSASRDEE seems a little more cryptic to me.  The cartoon was a little on the basic side.  I think Jeff probably drew this lying down!  JKLOL!  That’s it, you Jumble Junkies.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 12/03/14

Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”   —   Mahatma Gandhi

(This is the Indian version of:  One bad apple don’t spoil the whole bunch.  I try not to look at people in terms of “good” and “bad”, but for the sake of argument, it’s pretty safe to say that the bad people make up a very small percentage of humanity.  They just get the lion’s share of the press.  Always have.  Probably always will.  A bunch of someones seem to think we require these cautionary tales.  I’d like to think we could do with a whole lot less, but too many of us need to be smacked over the head from time to time . . . just to stay in line.  Or, at least to be reassured that . . . you and I aren’t so bad.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
