Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 12/02/18

Visual Description:  Post supper suffering.

HCTTAH  =  THATCH,  EYULSR  =  SURELY,  FIRTAF  =  TARIFF,  BRANER  =  BARREN,  MITGAB  =  GAMBIT,  BACLOT  =  COBALT   —   Giving us:  THHSELTIBANGMICOL

Clue/Question:  The meal at the fancy restaurant was delicious, but they were having problems – – –

Pre-Answer:  Three Words  (10-letters)  (3-letters)  (4-letters)

Answer:  STOMACHING THE BILL

(Fantastic Sunday Jumble!  A marvelous pun!  No new clue words, but five of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve definitely seen “braner” some time before.  The answer letter layout was an impressive 17-letter jumble!  I knew it had to be *something* THE BILL.  At first I toyed with MASTICATING, but knew the letters weren’t right for that – and too few.  So, I wrote out HSTANGMICO.  I knew the word had to end in ING, so that left me with HSTAMCO.  Then, it hit me like a punch to the gut!  Great cartoon, as usual.  Jeff is a master of drawing chichi restaurants!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
