Cryptoquote Spoiler – 08/28/18

The first step to get what you want is to get rid of what you don’t.”   —   Paulo Coelho

(Another new guy to the Cryptoquote Club!  Welcome, Paulo!  I jumped the gun early on, and made the author’s first name Pablo.  This led me to making the words “you” into “job“.  I was thinking:  Wow!  This is a very rough translation!  I actually inserted the word “you” between “job” and “want”, and then between “job” and “don’t” to get it to make sense to me.  I did not realize my mistake until I Googled Pablo Coelho, but it redirected me to Paulo Coelho.  Okay, so now I know better.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 08/28/18

Visual Description:  Oh!  So that’s what the Illuminati looks like!

ELCTF  =  CLEFT,  PRNUS  =  SPURN,  GLEYCR  =  CLERGY,  IWIGRN  =  WIRING   —   Giving us:  CLERNCERIIN

Clue/Question:  The small meeting of the shapes was called by the – – –

Answer:  INNER CIRCLE

(Very clever pun.  Sorta like one of Hoyt’s other games.  The one where you have to figure out a phrase based on some funky pictures.  He puts it up on Facebook sometimes.  I’m not all that good at it.

But, our Head Word-Nerd has given us ANOTHER new clue word today, in “wiring”!  Boy, he sure is keeping our good friend, ralis95, busy, updating his world famous clue word database.  I think we’re coming up on 32 and 1/2 pages.  Or, maybe even a little more!  All of today’s jumbles came up as new.  None of them tripped me up any.  The answer letter layout was a masterful jumble, but I just knew that CIRCLE had to be the second word of the answer.  Maybe if he had used FLECK instead of “cleft”, and left us with LEC instead of CLE it might have been a little tougher.  We’ll never know!

Cute cartoon!  That circle looks like he’s up to no good.  Before reading the clue/question, I was thinking street signs instead of shapes.  Although I’ve never seen a street sign in the shape of a star before.  The triangle and the star brought drinks with them to the meeting.  What could these shapes be plotting?  Hmm!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Happy Birthday to my brother, Geoff!  Boy, that guy is getting old!  LOL!   —   YUR
