Cryptoquote Humbler – 04/18/16

Once again, I’m stuck in neutral, on something that I’m used to doing in overdrive.  There are four words that get used two times, with one of them ending probably in D, R, or S.  I’m guessing that the J is the A, but it could be the I.  Nothing is calling out o me.  Maybe I’m intimidated by the 10 and 13 letter worrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Scratch all that crap!  The kid’s still got it!  As I was typing out my little pity party, and glancing down at the paper, suddenly the 10 letter word jumped into my head, and I saw the error of my earlier assumptions.  Read it and weep, suckas!

Science provides an understanding of a universal experience.  Arts provide a universal understanding of a personal experience.”   —   Mae Jemison

(I think it was a Mae Jemison quote that stopped me last time!  Wasn’t it?  OMG!  You would not believe the pictures Zemanta came up with because of the word “humbler”!  Uh, eeee-eww!  But, this definitely proves that you learn something new – though not always pretty – every day!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  SWAMPED

(Cute!  A real groaner of a pun, set up by an entertaining cartoon.  All of today’s clue words are old favorites.  However, all of the jumbles are coming up as new.  The answer letter layout was a fine jumble too.  It’s just kind of hard to hide today’s answer.  Love the cartoon.  Saturday’s Jumble continued to generate a lot of queries yesterday.  4066, combined with Saturday’s 5861, probably made it the biggest two day total on record for this blog.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
