Social media is not about the exploitation of technology but service to community.”   —   Simon Mainwaring

(It certainly should be used for good, but some people seem to use it for other means.  This is our first quote from Mr. Mainwaring, and yes, I did have to Google him.  A fairly challenging cryptogram though!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  “It’s NOT a *tuna*!”

GNEUL  =  LUNGE,  SLEWH  =  WELSH,  TACINP  =  CATNIP,  ROLFAM  =  FORMAL   —   Giving us:  LNEWESHCIPFORA

Clue/Question:  When the royal marine mammals had a baby boy, he was the – – –

Image result for orcas breaching

Answer:  PRINCE OF WHALES

(You have to say the Visual Description like you’re Arnold Schwarzenegger, in “Kindergarten Cop”!  I’m  so glad that the Clue/Question was worded the way it was, because with the old king speaking of Charles, I was leaning towards Charlie the Tuna!  But, only for a second.  And, before Jeff has a fit, yes, I should’ve noticed that no one had any gills!  The breaching whale in the background was a bonus clue.  I’m just not sure if that is looking out a porthole, or if it’s just part of the headboard.  There was one other bonus clue.  I’m not sure if it was intentional, or inadvertent, but with the second clue word being “welsh” you have to wonder!  By the way, it is a new clue word, that needs to be added to the ralis95 world famous clue word database!  All of the jumbles came up as new, even though it seems to me that we’ve seen “rolfam” before.  Hmm.  The answer letter layout made for a super-duper jumble.  If you didn’t pick up on all the visual clues, you might have had trouble solving this puzzle.  This Jumble scored the Three Cs:  Cute, Clever and Challenging!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
