Jumble Spoiler – 04/13/16

Visual Description:  Our local cosmos.


Clue/Question:  The atmospheres of Venus and Earth are – – – 


(A nice challenging Jumble!  It looks like all the clue words are old favorites, and three of the four jumbles have been used before.  Only “frawh”  appears to be new.  I struggled to un-scramble “slurpa”.  I had to back into it, and that wasn’t easy, because without the letters from the last word the answer wasn’t all that obvious.  But, I saw enough to figure that out, so I knew I needed an S, an A, and an L.  The answer letter layout didn’t give the answer away, in my opinion.  I’m looking at the reduced size cartoon today – and for the next couple of days – so it’s hard to see the detail.  But, I was able to make out Neil deGrasse Tyson!  The planets are definitely a little murky, due to the reduction.  I think it’s Venus to the left and Earth to the right.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I also had to resort to the dreaded ‘backing into’ method for ‘pulsar’! With the planets and outer space in the drawing, I thought ‘pulsar’ was a nice sort of tie-in to today’s puzzle.

    Challenging indeed! I had to back into PULSAR too. From the words in the cartoon, I figured (wrongly) that the final answer was POLES APART, but of course that didn’t work. Then, I realized that it must be WORLDS APART, which gave ALS as the circled letters for the fourth word. It was still not trivial to figure out PULSAR, but I did, eventually. 59 seconds overall.

    The jumble for PULSAR was good. I went around and around on it, even after backing into it as I moved on to the answer.

    Wow! It looks like that jumble stumped many of us, for a while. Today’s was much easier. — YUR

    The jumble for PULSAR stumped me, too. I had to back into it, too. Real wow.

    I got pulsar but let it go to begin with because I thought it was a watch or something…there used to be some kind of ad and pulsar was in it! But then I got out my handy dandy word speller thingy and it was a word! I thought the same thing Jenn! LL
