Jumble Spoiler – 11/13/18

Visual Description:  The R.U.R.  O.R.?

NUEGL  =  LUNGE,  NWEHI  =  WHINE,  GUCTAH  =  CAUGHT,  TAIGRU  =  GUITA  —   Giving us:  NGEWHNCUTGIR

Clue/Question:  When the robot experienced abdominal surgery, it was – – –

Answer:  GUTWRENCHING

(Day two of our guest Jumblers is Dave Whamond, the creator of Reality Check.  This one I’m completely unfamiliar with, but the guy draws a mean robot!  Is he a regular character, or was this just for the Jumble?

All of today’s clue words are old favorites, and three of the jumbles appear to be new as well.  Only “guctah” has definitely been used before.  I had the most trouble unscrambling “taigru”.  I usually have trouble getting “guitar” for some reason.  The 12-letter answer letter layout was a very impressive jumble.  I didn’t find anything obvious about it.  I figured the second part of the answer was going to end in ING, but I was thinking ATING before I realized there was no A.  But, that forced me look at the letters more closely, because I really didn’t have a clue as to what they were looking for!

Very cool cartoon.  Classic looking robot.  I was trying to key on the word “abdominal” in the clue/question, at the same time that the cartoon wrenches were registering in my limited, first generation CPU.  What is that peering in through the OR door, a dog, or a wolf???  Hmm!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Well today was a slow brain day especially for caught & guitar but I finally got ‘em. Then I was thinking I’ll never solve it but I noticed the wrench & the answer immediately popped into my noggin, like the wrench freed the solve. Another frustrating but fun day at the Jumble, thanks Unc.

    Dave Whamond and “Reality Check” are new to me too, but he’s another cartoonist worthy of attention. I can see why Jumble Jeff may admire his work. Dave’s comic today is a one-panel Jumble-like pun:

    Thanks for posting the GoComics links, David! Now that I’m seeing the actual cartoon, I’m thinking I’ve seen it before, in some newspaper! — YUR
