Jumble Spoiler – 01/22/15

Visual Description:  Very strange photo shoot.

LAMTE  =  METAL,  SAIBS  =  BASIS,  CNURHB  =  BRUNCH,  LAPOWL  =  WALLOP   —   Giving us:  METBASBUHALOP

Clue/Question:  The fashion shoot featured a model dressed as a hitchhiker with – – –

Answer:  APOSABLE THUMB

(Now, that’s a real groaner of a pun!  We had no new clue words, but all of the jumbles came up as new, to me.  And, none of them were super obvious.  Super-duper answer letter layout!  Very cryptic, today.  I thought you had to work to get the answer.  Effective cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 01/22/15

Quarrels would not last so long if the fault were on only one side.”   —   Francois de La Rochefoucauld

(It took quite a while to get this one started.  Then it took quite a while to fix my having the Q as the O, the G as the N and the D as the T!  Once I straightened those three things out it went pretty smoothly!  I think this is the first time we’ve had the author’s full name.  Usually we just get the La Rochefoucauld.  Very quotable dude!  A great observationist, who was a talented writer!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
