Cryptoquote Spoiler – 01/23/15

The universe is like a safe to which there is a combination.  But the combination is locked up in the safe.”   —   Peter de Vries

(A very clever quip.  The universe has always been a great source of mystery.  But . . . the answers are out there.  Our physicists are unlocking more and more of its secrets, all of the time.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 01/23/15

Visual Description:  Tornado Alley cats.

YAONN  =  ANNOY,  EEZIS  =  SEIZE,  TANYIV  =  VANITY,  TALFUN  =  FLAUNT   —   Giving us:  NNOSIEVNIFLU

Clue/Question:  Storm chasers who are too intent on getting close to a twister have – – – 

Answer:  FUNNEL VISION

(Among other things!  Excellent pun!  There were no new clue words today.  Either all of the jumbles were new, or maybe just some of them, or none of them were.  WordPress is pushing their newer Compose/Post screen, and the Tags section behaves differently.  I didn’t struggle with any of them though.  The answer letter layout is another master jumble.  I don’t think that it gives a thing away.  The cartoon does a wonderful job of catching the crazed look of the storm chasers.  You have to have a couple of loose screws to see a tornado approaching, and instead running away from it, you run towards it.  I know why they do it, but it’s still nutty.  I also liked the name on their analytic machine.  Though, I do think the real Toto probably had the sense to high-tail it out of there.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
