Cryptoquote Spoiler – 08/29/18

A good many car drivers don’t need seat belts as much as they need straight jackets.”   —   Source Unknown

(I’m pretty sure this unknown source was somebody’s mom!  I think they – the drivers – are mostly adrenaline junkies.  They’ve got the need for speed!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 08/29/18

Visual Description:  Assembly line aroma.

ODPOR  =  DROOP,  LXIEE  =  EXILE,  SKCITY  =  STICKY,  CLAHNB  =  BLANCH   —   Giving us:  DEETNC

Clue/Question:  The pennies were just minted and had a unique smell.  This made them – – –

Answer:  CENTED  (Not DECENT)

(I thought I’d nip THAT one right in the bud!  Even though DECENT would fit, it does not make for a relevant pun.  And, puns is the name of the game, at the Jumble!

Guess what?  We have yet another new clue word today, in “blanch”.  Yes, our dear old buddy, ralis95, will once again be updating his world famous clue word database!  Fortunately, he enjoys stuff like this.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, with “odpor” having been used sometime in the past.  The answer letter layout was a fine, short jumble.

Cute cartoon.  Slightly reminiscent of that “I Love Lucy” episode, where Lucy and Ethel worked at the chocolate candy factory.  There’s been lots of talk about discontinuing the penny.  Even though there is virtually no copper in them anymore, they cost much more to make than they’re worth!  I believe Canada has already done so.  For me, it’s sad to think of a world without pennies.  But, time marches on.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
