Tough Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 12/07/14

Visual Description:  Another tethered teen or twenty-something.

TERERV  =  REVERT,  RUILOQ  =  LIQUOR,  AKANEW  =  AWAKEN,  SULENS  =  UNLESS,  NONYAC  =  CANYON,  GLIBEO  =  OBLIGE   —   Giving us:  RTIOWKNNLSCAOOIG

Clue/Question:  She told her son to get off Facebook and Twitter to do his chores, but he preferred – – –

Answer:  SOCIAL NOTWORKING

(Wow!  Great pun!  This was tough . . . for me, at least.  None of the clue words are new, but a good amount of the jumbling was.  I didn’t have to back into any of them, but I thought “unless” was fairly tough, and “liquor” really threw me.  The answer letter layout was truly a work of art today.  For a long time I thought the first word had to be TAKING.  And, the second word, being in quotation marks, had to be SNOW something, or something SNOW.  After this . . . not working I thought about networking, but there was no E.  But, it helped me to see SOCIAL, and then I was able to figure out the pun.  Fine cartoon.  Two tough Sunday puzzles!  Maybe to help us remember that today is Pearl Harbor Day.  Be well and do good, my friends.)   —   YUR

    I’m so stuck, but not willing to give up. Have about caught up. Soooooo many grand puzzlers. Especially enjoyed the guest puzzlers. Actually many days ago OMEGA held me prisoner then stuff for mama’s estate took over. Not much puzzler time lately 😦 Hopefully I’ll get this one figured out before the week ends!!!

    Thanks UNC.

    .When I clicked on this “comment” note in my e-mail, I saw the puzzler answer. OY!!!! I was all over networking, did not have social, I bounced all around the answer. I was convinced I needed an E or a D. I can move forward.

    Guyz, well played. The puzzlers have been top notch! Thank you. LL
