Cryptoquote Spoiler – 06/15/18

Normal is an illusion.  What is normal to the spider is chaos to the fly.”   —   Morticia Addams

(It’s fairly rare that we see a quote attributed to a character, as opposed to the author.  In this case, it would be Charles Addams.  It is a fantastic quote though!  So true.  I was a big fan of “The Addams Family” television show, back in the ’60s.  Much more erudite than “The Munsters”!  I had a small crush on Carolyn Jones.  The movies were well done too.  Anjelica Huston and Raul Julia captured the spirit of Carolyn Jones and John Astin’s signature roles very nicely.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  ALL YEAR ROUND

(The actual Question, in today’s Jumble, comes from the young lady in the cartoon.  The Answer is a fill-in-the-blank continuation of the statement in the Clue/Question.  The Clue/Question being more of a complete the statement is nothing new.  It’s fairly common.  We use the word “round” to generally describe an orbit, but it is really more of an elliptical path.  Kinda like how we describe anything four-sided as square, when very often rectangular is more accurate.

No new clue words today, although three of the jumbles appear to be new.  They’ve used “warnd” before.  The answer letter layout was another cryptic, twelve letter jumble.  It hid the answer very well.

Another great Neil deGrasse Tyson cartoon.  I’m guessing we’re seeing Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, at least.  Maybe the orb being supported by legs is Jupiter, because it is so massive.  Or, maybe that is the sun that the planets are rotating around.  The lady is either a teacher, or a classroom-mom/chaperone.  The kids seem to be really into it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
