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

    Oh look, a second Jumble! puzzle in the past month with a cartoon referencing adultery…WAIT…WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?!? Did someone teleport me to an alternate universe?. Or did marketing research say Jumble! was testing too plain vanilla and needed to explore more adult themes?

    Up next…
