Jumble Spoiler – 12/04/18

Visual Description:  Is that Big Al with Big Ben?

PXLEE  =  EXPEL,  YPOLO  =  LOOPY,  SURFEE  =  REFUSE,  GJOREG  =  JOGGER   —   Giving us:  ELLYUSOE

Clue/Question:  Ben Franklin’s response to bifocal skeptics was – – –

Answer:  YOULL SEE

(Brilliant!  A clear cut winner of a pun!  A discernible Jumble, indeed.

We even have a new clue word today, in “loopy”.  Our good friend, ralis95, can add this to his world famous clue word database.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new as well, with only “surfee” having definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout was another fine jumble.  Nothing obvious about it.  I had to read the cartoon and clue/question, and look at the answer spaces, before I saw where they were going with it.

Another great period piece cartoon.  That looks like it could be Alexander Hamilton, but it could be a number of the Founding Fathers, I suppose.  The quill pen in the inkwell and the scrolly vellum paper go well with the clothing and the hairstyles.  And, the Franklin stove in the corner was the icing on the cake.  An easy solve, but a classic Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I had to question Loopy as I didn’t think it was a Jumble word. And for the answer, I thought Eye was one of the words, but the remaining letters didn’t make much sense. Then I went to See, and then it ‘became clear (!)’ 😀

    Ha, that was my first guess, too, Damid: “EYE’LL….” but as you said, nothing could be made from the remaining letters. Plus the needed quotation marks to indicate a pun word were missing, so I knew I was running down the wrong rabbit hole again. I got LOOPY right away, though I also thought, hmm, I believe that’s a new Jumble word.
