Jumble Spoiler – 08/03/18

Visual Description:  If a tree falls in the woods, and no one is there to stream it, does it make a sound?

PKIMS  =  SKIMP,  EELVA  =  LEAVE,  ETTINN  =  INTENT,  TGREFO  =  FORGET   —   Giving us:  IMLEIENRET

Clue/Question:  Everyone watched him pull in the fish – – –

Answer:  IN REEL TIME

(“Reelly”  For creel???  After it streams live, then I guess the video can go viral.  Yes, this is a good, stinky pun.  And, that’s how the kids like to do it today.  Snapchat this, Instagram that!  And Facebook everything else.  I wonder if they have their own YouTube channel?

None of today’s clue words are new, yet all of their jumbles appear to be.  I first wrote out “aleve”, thinking maybe the OTC pain reliever was spelled the same as alleve, which is sort of a variant of alleviate.  Apparently the word “leave” was just too basic for me to grasp.  I had to back into it, once I realized that I needed an L, and not an A.  The other three were gimmes for me.  Great job on the answer letter layout.  Even if I hadn’t initially screwed up, the answer letter layout was a nice jumble.

Nice cartoon of deep sea fishing.  It looks like the guy has hooked a marlin.  Maybe a sailfish?  Possibly a swordfish.  I love swordfish!  Do they eat marlin and sailfish as well?  They’re probably all too high in mercury.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Leave was the last word I got, but they all didn’t take much time. Once I got that last word, the answer came quickly. Which was nice as I’ve been busy and haven’t had a lot of time to ponder the puzzle. 😀

    UR, I had issues with ”leave” as well- I immediately thought it had to be ‘veela’ -from Harry Potter- and my brain wouldn’t consider any other word possibility! For a sec there, I thought that maybe the Jumble Guyz were starting to use magical words in the Jumbles! . =D

    The same with me and Aleve, jenn! In my heart, I knew it wasn’t right, but I couldn’t see anything else. I felt pretty silly when it turned out to be LEAVE. I guess our reasoning had LEFT the building! — YUR

    I went the ALEVE route too…but the handy dandy revived Spelling Ace set me straight. LL
