Jumble Spoiler – 10/26/18

Visual Description:  The movie yer Uncle really wants to see!

TAPOD  =  ADOPT,  OSGEO  =  GOOSE,  DUGLES  =  SLUDGE,  GTORNS  =  STRONG   —   Giving us:  AOTOOSSDETRON

Clue/Question:  With the movie being so popular, the long lines – – –

Answer:  STOOD TO REASON

(Nicely challenging Jumble!  It made me think a little.  Probably because of the answer letter layout, my first inclination was STOOD ON something.  But, the words you can make out of AOSETR – oaters and orates – didn’t make a whole lot of sense to me.  So, I changed ON to TO, and then AOSENR gave me a REASON to celebrate!

All of the clue words are old favorites.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, with “dugles” having been used sometime before.  “Adopt” spells out in alphabetical order.  The answer letter layout made for a very fine jumble.  It tripped me up some.  Lots of O’s!

The cartoon shows your basic queuing for a movie nicely.  I’ve seen a few previews of “Bohemian Rhapsody”, and it looks awesome!  My wife and I saw “A Star is Born” a couple of weeks ago, and I loved that.  Even made me cry a little.  Lady Gaga can act, and Bradley Cooper can sing!  But, I’m a big Queen fan!  “Bohemian Rhapsody” will bring me back to my college days.  Rami Malek makes for a great Freddy Mercury!  I wish I could go see it tomorrow, but it looks like I’ll have to wait until Monday.  Oh, well.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Big thumbs up for this final answer. It challenged me too. All the letters in the final answer are very common, so there are many possible words they can form. I filled in STOOD right off the bat based on lines to see a movie, but that didn’t help me much. There are a number of common two-letter words in the remaining letters to sort through. And REASON doesn’t leap out. It took me several minutes to get there.

    The more common phrase you’ll hear is that it “stands to reason,” which made this even more challenging to see, yet the flow from clue to the answer in this tense is perfect. Bravo!

    And welcome back Unc!

    I totally agree it was a bugger! I had to have the Husb check to make sure that STOOD TO REASON was correct, and was so surprised when I was right. Thought provoking. I was determined not to be stumped two days in a row!

    Hope your time away was good Unc LL

    Thanks, LL. Yes, it was. But, I ate and drank too much, and didn’t exercise, so now I’m feeling bloated. Time for me to hit the gym! — YUR
