Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/04/18

The softer you sing, the louder you’re heard.”   —   Donovan

(This short quote was tougher to solve than you might think . . . for me at least.  We Welcome Donovan Philips Leitch to the Cryptoquote Club.  I haven’t heard him in ages, but apparently he’s still performing.  Well, at least he’s still alive.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Semi-Tough) Jumble Spoiler – 10/04/18

Visual Description:  Green on the tee.

UROBR  =  BURRO,  DASEK  =  ASKED,  PCETAS  =  ASPECT,  MHRHTY  =  RHYTHM   —   Giving us:  UROASESECTHYT

Clue/Question:  To become better at golf, the young golfer would need to – – –

Answer:  STAY THE COURSE

(What is this?  1988?!  “Stay the course.”  “A thousand points of light.”  “Read my lips.  No new taxes.”  “Ah ah.  Nah gahn’ do it.”  Whether it’s George H.W. Bush saying them, or Dana Carvey’s spot on impression of #41, these were once very well known lines in Americana.  SNL used to always have someone who could do a very convincing, and humorous, impression of the current President.  Chevy did Gerald Ford, Aykroyd did Nixon – a la flashback, Phil Hartman did a pretty good Reagan, D.C. did G.H.W.B., Darrell Hammond did a great Clinton, Will Ferrell’s Duh-bya was classic, Jay Pharoah’s Obama was good too.  But, it seems they’ve outsourced Donald Trump to Alec Baldwin, which is okay, because he’s hosted the show more than anyone else.  But, he’s not an actual cast member.  Beck Bennett or Colin Jost should give it a shot.

We actually have a brand new clue word in “aspect”.  The man, the myth, the legend, ralis95, will have to add this to his world famous clue word database.  Hoyt has been great at bringing us new clue words, the last few months, hasn’t he!  All of the jumbles are coming up as new today.  But, the answer letter layout was the best jumble.  I wasn’t seeing the answer for a few minutes.  I was thinking more along the lines of GET THE SWING OF IT, but that would be more of a Sunday answer.

Fine cartoon, as usual.  The guy looks a little like Harold Ramis, who wrote and directed “Caddyshack”.  I really like the little details, like the curled divot and the broken tee.  Maybe she should try a slightly smaller driver.  That one is nearly as big as she is.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
