Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/03/18

Will the last person out of the tunnel please turn off the light?   —   Source Unknown

(This is a quote?  I don’t even get it.  Something to do with the light at the end of the tunnel?  And, the light, which wouldn’t be in the tunnel . . .  So, this is some kind of joke, I suppose.  But, I’ve never heard it before.  It made for a fairly challenging cipher though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 10/03/18

Visual Description:  Splitsville.

SHYAT  =  HASTY,  NEBUG  =  BEGUN,  FUNXIL  =  INFLUX,  VIRITA  =  TRIVIA   —   Giving us:  HATBEFLTRI

Clue/Question:  After a nasty divorce, she started referring to her ex-husband as her – – –

Answer: BITTER HALF

(Ooh!  The dark side of the Jumble?  Well, it’s part of real life.  Not everyone goes through it, but about 48% of married couples get divorced by their 20th year of marriage.  Carol and I are coming up on 32 years, so I guess we’re doing something right.

All of today’s clue words are old favorites.  The first two jumbles appear to be new, with “funxil” and “virita” having definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout was a splendid jumble.  Not obvious.

Everyone looks “bitter” in today’s cartoon.  Nothing remarkable about a couple of lady friends chatting over a glass of wine.  The sad-sack ex-hubby is toast!  Say bye-bye, bro.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Lisa Edelstein came up when I Googled “divorce scenes”, and that reminded me of how much I like her, so that’s why you’re seeing her.  I’m a big fan.   —   YUR
