Cryptoquote Spoiler – 06/15/17

One of the things the Empire taught:  that apart from citizenship, the synonymous inheritance of the citizenship was the literature.”   —   Derek Walcott

(Our very first Derek Walcott quotation, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  Ironically, the esteemed gentleman passed away only about three months ago.  It looks like he lived a very full and rewarding life though.  Good for him.  I drew a blank on his first name.  I wrote out all the unused consonants, and considered a few losing combinations, before my V-8 moment!  My son’s name is Derek.  Mama said there’d be days like this.  Be well and do well, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  PECKING ORDER

(Not being a farm boy, I’m not sure how accurate this particular Jumble pun might be.  You’d think, with the whole male dominance thing, that the rooster would eat first, and the hens would be the ones to wait.  But, there is always strength in numbers, and there are always more hens than roosters.  Right?

Well.  Stop the presses!  Alert the media!  And, somebody wake up ralis95!  We have not one, but two new clue words today.  Even before consulting my read-only copy of the Jumble Clue Word Bible, the world famous ralis95 clue word database, I thought to myself:  Hmm, I don’t think I’ve seen Hoyt use “cagey” or “pucker” before.  Lo and behold, my suspicions were correct.  So, two new words for the database are pending the big man’s approval.  Only the jumble for “rodeo” has been used before.  The answer letter layout was a super, cryptic jumble.  Nothing obvious, at all.  And, the cartoon is charming.  That’s it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
