Cryptoquote Spoiler – 04/14/18

Tale bearers are as bad as the tale makers – tis an old observation and a very true one.”   —   Richard Sheridan

(Our first Richard Sheridan quote!  I’m assuming that by “tales” he’s referring to gossip, and not legitimate stories.  Otherwise, this would be akin to rationalizing Kill the messenger!  I’m not sure if I ever acted in a Sheridan play.  There was some English play I was in, my freshman year in college, where I was a little high on pain killers, and I mashed up some lines, and delivered a scene or two a little ahead of schedule.  The guy I was playing against did a great job of getting me back to where I should have been, but I know it couldn’t have been easy.  I’ll have to ask him if he remembers the name of that play.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  SUPPURR

(I haven’t owned a cat in a number of years, but I don’t think they purr while eating.  I could be wrong.  But, it makes for a cute pun.  None of the clue words were virginal, yet three of the jumbles appear to be.  We’ve seen “sipeo” at least once in the past.  I saw the compound word “dugout” without any trouble this morning.  Maybe, because I mentioned it a couple of days ago, with the baseball Jumble!

The answer letter layout was a little unusual, with three sets of repeating letters.  But, it made for a fine jumble.  Even before reading the clue/question I was thinking along the lines of SUPERB, or SUPER.  Something with the PURR sound in it.  I recently read that supper is THE evening meal, and that dinner is supposed to be lunch!  I was surprised, because I always thought they were just interchangeable for the evening meal.  Supper always sounded a little more country to me, and dinner more urban.  Or, perhaps I should say urbane!

Fine cartoon.  That looks like one happy fat cat!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
