Jumble Spoiler – 11/05/18

Visual Description:  Who to blame in the frame game?

AGTYN  =  TANGY,  IMTLI  =  LIMIT,  SORKEH  =  KOSHER,  NRAYCN  =  CRANNY   —   Giving us:  TAGIIKSERAN

Clue/Question:  They’d had some thefts at the bowling alley and worried the thief might – – –

Answer:  STRIKE AGAIN

(A wonderfully stinky pun!  Good thing the manager is carrying a can of Lysol!  Kill those sweaty germs, Earl!

None of today’s clue words are new.  However, all of their jumbles appear to be so.  I had some trouble coming up with “kosher”.  I had to skip it and come back to it, but I didn’t have to back into it.  One of the synonyms for “cranny” is split, so I guess it was a very appropriate clue word for this Jumble.  The answer letter layout did a fine job of disguising the final solution.  At first, I was toying with the first word ending in ING, like maybe TAKING .  But, suddenly the answer STRUCK me!

Great cartoon!  You definitely know you’re in a bowling alley, with the Charlie Sheen “Two and a Half Men” bowling shirts, the shoes, the balls and the pins.  You can see the ball return thing, and the scorer’s table.  And, one guy in the background appears to be bowling a strike.  Good stuff, Jeff.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I had to back into Kosher. That’s because I saw Koresh first and couldn’t get past that. (David Koresh, Branch Davidians, Waco TX). As far as the spray, it’s not Lysol. There is an anti-fungal spray specifically made for bowling alley shoes to disinfect them. The clerk is supposed to spray every one returned to them by the bowlers. 😀

    I saw Koresh also, Damid! But, I didn’t let that throw me. Thanks for the bowling shoe lesson! 🙂
