Jumble Spoiler – 08/17/16

Visual Description:  Craftsman vs. Crapsman?

AUGGE  =  GAUGE,  LAASI  =  ALIAS,  TRONHW  =  THROWN,  CLASIO  =  SOCIAL   —   Giving us:  AUGALSTHNSOI

Clue/Question:  The carpenter has had his hammer for so long because it was – – –

Answer:  TOUGH AS NAILS

(Tougher, actually.  There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles are coming up as new.  I didn’t find any of them to be tough though.  The answer letter layout was a great jumble, and gave nothing away.  I guess the answer just hit home.  The cartoon hit the nail on the head!  I’ve had one of those cheapo hammers break on me before.  Very frustrating.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Lovely pun! It was tough for me, though! I had to think a couple of seconds for ALIAS and THROWN took me a fair bit of time. For the final answer, I first guessed that the second word was IN, but quickly figured out that the last word was NAILS. For some reason I was thinking along the lines of TOOTH AND NAILS. I tried AT and TO for the second word, before realizing that the first word probably ended in GH. That led me to the answer.

    Yikes I has ASAIL and still got the answer. Can’t believe I messed that one up.
