Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 04/22/18

The advantage of a bad memory is that one enjoys several times the same good things for the first time.”   —   Nietzsche

(I used to try to put that positive spin on people with Alzheimer’s.  But, with them there’s a lot of frustration and fear.  And, nobody enjoys those things.  Be well and do good, friends!

Hey, Happy Earth Day!  Do something good today, like plant a tree or bush, or go around picking up litter, and put it in its place.  Hopefully, something like a recycling bin.  It’s a BIG day for birthdays today!  Too many to mention them all, so I’ll give you my personal favorites.  The Incomparable Jack Nicholson is 81, the Marvelous Mel Carter is 79, the Genius John Waters is 72, Rock singers Peter Frampton and Paul Carrack are 68 and 67, respectively.  And, actor Joe Bottoms is 64.  A slew of others under 60, so Happy Birthday to all the rest.  Or, LAL HET SERT as Jeff Knurek would say!)   —   YUR

(“Oh, we ain’t got a barrel of money.  Maybe we’re not always funny.  But, we travel along, writin’ this blog.  Stride with pride.”  Thank you, ladies and gentlemen!  I’ve got a million of them!

Hey!  Guess what, kids?  We have a brand new clue word today, in “LARGER”!  Yes, our good friend, ralis95, can add yet another word to his world famous clue word database.  How ’bout dat?  LARGE has been there almost since the beginning of time, but it took eons to pop on the comparative R.  Five of the jumbles appear to be new, as well, with “rulhoy” having definitely been used some time in the past.  It took me a couple of looks to see “indigo” and “radish”.  It’s funny because I like radishes, but when they put some on my plate, last night, with tacos carnitas, I treated them like they were something from another planet!  RADISHES?!  We don’t need no stinkin’ RADISHES!!!  I can be one bad-ass bandito, when I want to be.

The answer letter layout was both amazing AND remarkable!  A truly cryptic jumble, that makes you work for the answer.  I bet, even with the quotation marks – and superfluous hyphens – that a good number of you struggled – some – to get today’s answer.  GOOD!  Struggle builds character!  At the very least, struggle builds synapses between neurons and receptors in our noggins!  And, as Martha would say:  “That’s a good thing!”

The cartoon is a classic middle class family scene.  Sure, the boys are standing next to each other, but there is no cheesy, overt bonus clue.  The “Sister, Sister” show was one of my daughter Katrina’s favorites, when she was a kid.  I used to tease her, ALL THE TIME, by calling it “Moesha”, Moesha, because there was another sitcom that starred a Black teenage girl, that was running at the same time.  To this day, whenever I see Tia or Tamera, the stars of “Sister, Sister”, I’ll say to my daughter:  Look, hon!  It’s Moesha, Moesha!  When she was a kid it always frustrated her to no end, but now that she’s an adult, she just smiles at me and says I’m a moron!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
