Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/17/18

Hope fills the holes of my frustration in my heart.”   —   Emanuel Cleaver

(Doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue.  Could have done without that first “my” I’d say.  But, this is our first quote from the Congressman from Missouri!  So, we welcome him with open arms to the Cryptoquote Club!  And, this was no gimme either.  It took a while for me to get this one started.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 11/17/18

Visual Description:  “Bear”-ly thawed.

DRYNE  =  NERDY,  CRIBK  =  BRICK,  FEIDER  =  DEFIER,  ZHDAAR  =  HAZARD   —   Giving us:  NEBRIEFEAZR

Clue/Question:  One of the drawbacks of a polar bear’s diet

Answer:  BRAIN FREEZE

(You just gotta take your time when you eat something that cold!  When you eat something that cold, that fast, you’re gonna suffer.  Thanks to Chad Carpenter, of “Tundra”, for being today’s guest Jumble cartoonist.  Yet another comic that my newspaper does not carry, but I have come across it in other newspapers.

We seem to have a very rare treat today, in that there appears to be two new clue words!  I hope ralis95 has had his Wheaties today, because he’s going to have to add both “nerdy” and “defier” to his world famous clue word database.  I hesitated a bit to write down “nerdy”, because it doesn’t sound completely legit.  But, it is.  I had to semi-back into “defier”, a word, by the way, that WordPress does not acknowledge as legit.  Friggin’ Limeys!  I didn’t get the final answer before, but looking at the answer letters that I did have made me realize that I at least needed an F.  That was enough for me to go with “defier”.  I can’t remember when we last had, or if we ever had, two new clue words on a single, four clue word Jumble. Splendid answer letter layout.  A nicely cryptic 11-letter jumble.  Oh, yeah!  All of today’s jumbles came up as new too.

Cute cartoon.  A little graphically violent perhaps, but not overly so.  Not really all that flattering to polar bears though.  But, yes, I understand that it’s just a cartoon.  Great guest week!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
