Cryptoquote Spoiler – 03/03/18

Image result for Adam Jones musicians

With four perfectionists in the band, we have a hard time reaching perfection.”   —   Adam Jones

(And, I’m sure they all had their own definition of perfection!  Very tough situation.  This is our first quotation from the guitarist from Tool.  There are a good number of famous Adam Jones out there, but the vast majority of them are athletes.  If this had been from the center fielder of the Orioles it would have been another funny coincidence, considering today’s Jumble!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  BALLPARK FIGURE

(Wow!  Another fourteen letter answer!  But, today’s was like a belt-high fastball, coming right down the middle of the plate.  I turned on that sucker, and launched it right into the left-field bleachers, in the Pepsi Porch.

The clue words were all tried and true, but all the jumbles were brand spankin’ new!  It took me a few seconds to see “bunker”.  The answer letter layout was a fine jumble too, but there was nothing ambiguous in today’s cartoon.  Stadium and ballpark are pretty synonymous, and the idiom/answer is popular in the vernacular.  The current owner looks like a rich cowboy.  Probably made his money in oil and gas.  The lucky lottery winner looks like he has zero business sense.  Oh, well.  Sink or swim, kid!  Jeff has some pretty heady numbers there!  12 years and 4183 cartoons!  Those are HOF #s, baby!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
