Cryptoquote Spoiler – 06/26/18

You are imperfect, permanently and inevitably flawed.  And you are beautiful.”   —   Amy Bloom

(Why thank you, Amy!  Back at ya, kid!  Yep.  None of us are perfect, but each one of us has beauty and value.  This is the first quote of Ms. Bloom’s to hit the Cryptoquote, at least since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  Welcome to the club, Amy!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  NASCAR star Kevin Harvick loves golf and particularly enjoys a – – –

Answer:  LONG DRIVE

(But, at least with golf it’s not . . . all left turns!  I’d call this a benign stinky pun.  Kinda like a popcorn fart.  There was no stretch of the imagination here.  A straightaway, clear cut pun.  Neither one of these sports floats my boat, as a spectator.  I’ll occasionally watch golf, especially if not much else is on.  But, with cable and internet television, there’s pretty much always something else on.

All of today’s clue words are Jumble staples, but all of their jumbles are coming up as new.  I was able to see all the clue words immediately today.  Guess I was just in the zone.  The answer letter layout made for an admirable jumble.  Most definitely NOT obvious, by any means.

Fairly standard golf cartoon.  It’s hard for me to say how good a likeness this is of Mr. Harvick, but at the very least it’s passable.  I always enjoy the little details.  The divot, the broken tee, the number 4 on his cap, and the # 4 on his golf cart.  I know the argument for golf carts is that they speed up the game, so more golfers can play.  But, I still think it’s lame for guys – and gals – who are in the prime of their lives, to be using golf carts.  The brisk walk, following the ball, is at least half the exercise angle of the sport.  Hopefully, the cart was just a . . . vehicle for further exploiting the # 4.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
