Jumble Spoiler – 09/14/18

Visual Description:  A very small medium at large.


Clue/Question:  The possibility that ESP was real didn’t even – – – 


(I’d call this a non-stinky pun.  It has a certain level of sophistication.  I don’t think that 90+% of these people have any real special talents.  It’s all observation, percentages, and parlor tricks.  They mainly tell people what they want to hear.  But, a lot of people will go to them fairly regularly.  I went to one roadside “fortune teller” once, on a lark.  The sign enticed me with:  $10 Reading.  Of course, when I went inside I was immediately talked into a $30 or $40 reading.  Nothing enlightening.  So much vaguery that it was laughable.  Save your money, folks.

All of the jumbles came up as new, although all the clue words look like familiar old friends.  None of them stumped me today.  The answer letter layout was a nice 12-letter jumble.  Nothing obvious about it, to me.

Fun cartoon.  The guy looks like how I felt after my reading.  LOL!  But, don’t call them Gypsies.  We have to call them Romani, or we’re being politically incorrect.  And, the PC Police will come after us, if we use the “incorrect” word!  Can you say:  Too much of a good thing! ?  I’ve always argued against the “slippery slope” argument, but now I feel like we’re all “Slip Sliding Away”.  At least we can sing along with Paul Simon!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I share your assessment of fortune tellers, UR, but it’s 100%. Any margin of accuracy is just dumb luck! I would repeat Ambrose Bierce’s definition of a clairvoyant: “A person, commonly a woman, who has the power of seeing that which is invisible to her patron – namely, that he is a blockhead.”

    Well, not to be politically incorrect — I did not hear the term Romani once while visiting Europe!

    Totally enjoyed the jumble!! LL

    You know they’re fakes when the cops show up and slap the cuffs on them. If they were real, they should have seen it coming and would have departed the premises. 😀

    Europe generally laughs at us Americans, as being both too naive and a little too high strung, LindaLee.

    I was trying hard not to offend any of my readers who might frequent them, Roy. — YUR
