Jumble Spoiler – 06/27/18

Visual Description:  Near identical living quarters.


Clue/Question:  The two house for lease looked alike, but it was easy to spot the – – –


(The groan heard ’round the world!  Oh, yes.  This was truly a stinky pun.  But, I’m not complaining.  The stinkier the better!  This was clearly a visual gag, as the rental signs were THE clue here.

All of today’s clue words have been used in the past.  However, some we haven’t seen in some time.  And, all of their jumbles appear to be new.  The first three I got immediately, but “sreetj” took me about four seconds.  The answer letter layout was a nice cryptic jumble.  But, it was the combination of the quotation marks and hyphen, the rental signs, and the leading nature of the clue/question that made it a fairly easy solve, for me.  And hopefully, for you too.

Nice, simple, semi-urban setting, against the Chicago skyline.  But, “Jumble Properties”?  Jeez, these guys are into just about everything!  Mugs, calendars, games, cars, etc., and now real estate.  Jeff and David are going to be bigger than Charles and David Koch some day!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I should have though of RENTS as the word being danced around in the clue, but didn’t. I couldn’t unscramble this final answer from the letters, other than FENDER-FIRST, which I had a sneaking suspicion wasn’t what they were going for. I only solved this one by stopping to just think about what the cartoon was really getting at. Good puzzle! Again, Jeff, thank you for the fairly direct cartoon which I think invented-spelling final answers like these need.

    Yeah, the answer letter layout was a complete blank to me. And Jester was my problem word for the day. Had to think about the answer for a few.

    Look at the windows. These houses will cease to look the same.

    These two photos were the closest I could get through Google Images. They’re really not much alike, like Jeff’s cartoon was. — YUR
