Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 08/12/18

Many ideas grow better when transplanted into another mind than in the one where they sprang up.”   —   Oliver Wendell Holmes

(A lot of the great inventors kind of stole other people’s ideas, and made them into realities.  Others bought them – dirt cheap usually – and made great things by modifying them some, and then marketing them better than the person who actually came up with the idea ever could have.  And a lot of companies claim that any employee’s ideas are the company’s intellectual property, if they came up with them while employed there.  Life is not always fair, but that just seems to be the way of the world.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 08/12/18

 

Visual Description:  Virus on the Orient Express!

MSCOUT  =  CUSTOM,  TALYNE  =  NEATLY,  CLOLEA  =  LOCALE,  RNHUCC  =  CRUNCH,  FISYTH  =  SHIFTY,  LONEOD  =  NOODLE   —   Giving us:  COATOCARNHHIOO

Clue/Question:  Many of the commuters heading into the station had colds, together, they rode the – – –

Pre-Answer:  Two Words   “(5-letters)-(4-letters)”  (5-letters)

Answer:  ACHOOCHOO TRAIN

(I’d say that this is a good stinky pun, but my nose is so stuffed up . . . that I can’t smell a thing!  JKLOL!  Well, it didn’t take a genius to figure this one out.  If anything, it took someone with a small child’s mentality.  And, that’s yer Uncle Rave!  Cute pun!

None of today’s clue words are new, however five of the six jumbles appear to be so.  I can vouch that they’ve definitely used “fisyth” before.  The answer letter layout was a pretty good jumble.  It might have been a little more challenging if they could have broken up the the HH and the OO a little more.  But, it wasn’t super obvious.

The cartoon is great, of course.  A little ironic that the Missus and I watched “Murder on the Orient Express” last night, on HBO.  It was okay.  I’d never read the book before, and I hadn’t seen the 1974 film version.  Both film versions had all-star casts, although I’d have to give the nod to the 1974 one.  I just thought that the crime’s conclusion was very contrived, and not very believable.  Maybe, the story played better in 1934, when it was published, but I was disappointed.  Good performances though.  I was particularly impressed with Josh Gad’s McQueen.  He’s only in his 30s, and is known for comedies, but he was good in a dramatic role.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend, folks.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
