Jumble Spoiler – 09/22/16

Image result for MattressesVisual Description:  The extended Labor Day mattress sale!

VAWEE  =  WEAVE,  MERFA  =  FRAME,  CREMIT  =  METRIC,  CINTEF  =  INFECT   —   Giving us:  EAVFRAMIIFT

Clue/Question:  When asked if they had mattresses that weren’t so soft, the salesman said – – –

Image result for Autumn

Answer:  AFFIRMATIVE

(No new clue words today, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve seen “merfa” before.  It always takes me a couple seconds to see “metric”.  I blame Reagan!  The answer letter layout was nicely cryptic.  Nothing given away.  The cartoon conveys the story very well.  Happy Autumn, everybody!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I didn’t know (until now) that AFFIRMATIVE could be used as a noun! It took me 20 seconds or so to get it. METRIC always takes me a few seconds as well, so you are not alone, UR! Excellent pun!

    Super puzzler! Got it!. All those letters for one word gave me a start. Seeing firm right away helped. LL
