Cryptoquote Spoiler – 08/30/18

I don’t want problems solved for me.  I want the fishing rod, not the fish.”   —   Yanni

(Yanni’s take on the classic “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day.  Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”  Sometimes attributed to Maimonides, sometimes to Lao Tzu, and sometimes to a bunch of other bygone folk.  Yanni is just asking to be taught, so he can figure things out for himself.  A noble aspiration.  We welcome Yanni to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 08/30/18

Visual Description:  Kindergarten math.

HITTG  =  TIGHT,  HNIKT  =  THINK,  XUFOOT  =  OUTFOX,  NLEENK  =  KENNEL   —   Giving us:  GHTTINOTOXNNE

Clue/Question:  The number 1 is so low that its value is – – –

Answer:  NEXT TO NOTHING

(It’s also “the loneliest number that you ever knew”, according to Three Dog Night!  An excellent band from my childhood days, by the way.  Many hits and memorable songs.  “One” being one of them.  I didn’t realize that the majority of their songs were written by other artists and song writers.  But, when you see the list of songs and their actual writers, they all make perfect sense.  At least to me they do.

Guess what, again???  Yes, we have another new clue word!  Our pal, ralis95, will have to update his world famous clue word database for the word “outfox”.  Hoyt is REALLY on a roll!  And not like some deli sandwich, either!  Three of the jumbles came up as new, with “hittg” having been used in the past.  The answer letter layout was a beautiful, 13-letter jumble.  Extremely well-constructed.  Not even giving away nothing!  The visual of the white board, and the leading nature of the clue/question is what tipped me off to the answer.

Standard classroom setting, with a pretty young teacher, and some cute little tykes.  I cannot say that I had zero ice cream last night, as I had an ice cream sandwich.  I wonder why icecream hasn’t been made into a compound word yet?  Seems like a no-brainer, to me.  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
