Visual Description:  A one time job.

HIYTC  =  ITCHY,  OGIGN  =  GOING,  PWHEEN  =  NEPHEW,  CLORSL  =  SCROLL   —   Giving us:  ICHYGOIPHESRL

Clue/Question:  When the Pharaoh employed an artist to decorate his tomb, it was a case of – – –

Answer:  HIREOGLYPHICS

(LOL!  I don’t know though.  When you “hire” someone, aren’t you expected to pay them?  I guess the honor of dying with the Pharaoh is the ultimate payoff!  No new clue words, but three of the jumbles are new.  We’ve seen “clorsl”  before.  The answer letter layout was pretty great, but I thought the answer was pretty obvious.  Great pun though!  And, the cartoon is priceless.  I’m a little surprised Jeff didn’t work in some form of a Jumble, either on the wall, or on the scroll!  Maybe, using the top picture, Jeff can give us the hieroglyphic version of the word Jumble! Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Today’s form of hieroglyphs are emojis. Words are being replaced with these little icons! 😉

    Still, a great pun using a lot of (13) letters!

    Breezed through this rather quickly. The pun puzzled me until I realized that the answer correctly spelled is HEIR….

    Don’t like thinking that the talented dude was taken out!

    Great pictures Unc., especially the top one. And for some reason it also reminds me of Mahjong tiles. Go figure.

    All of y’all have a grand weekend! LL

    I got the four words easily, and also “almost” solved” the final answer nearly instantly, except I typed in HEIR-O-GLYPHICS and was wondering why my answer wasn’t accepted. Then, I saw the quotation marks and realized it should be HIRE…

    Thanks, Jackie! But, I can only take credit for my spoilers. The puzzles themselves are the product of David L. Hoyt and Jeff Knurek. I’m just sorta the Rex Reed of Jumbles and Cryptoquotes. — YUR
