Cryptoquote Spoiler – 12/08/18

Never underestimate the power of jealousy and the power of envy to destroy.”   —   Oliver Stone

(Unfortunately, it happens all the time.  This appears to be our first Oliver Stone quote at the Cryptoquote, at least since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  So, we welcome Mr. Stone to the Cryptoquote Club!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 12/08/18

Visual Description:  Platter partners playing pettily.

NOOEZ  =  OZONE,  LIYHL  =  HILLY,  RAURHH  =  HURRAH,  TUNMTO  =  MUTTON   —   Giving us:  ONEHILHRAHUTTO

Clue/Question:  The Swiss cheese at the church picnic had an attitude that was – – –

Answer:  HOLIER THAN THOU

(I’m not a big fan of stinky cheeses, but I do love a good stinky pun!  I also much prefer the nuttier, hard cheeses to the gooier ones.  Both sharp and mild.

We seem to have a new clue word today, in “hurrah”.  But, I suspect that we’ve had it before, either since 10/09/18, or maybe it somehow missed the ralis95 clue word database . . . somehow?  Does it ring any bells with any of you Jumble-holics?  All of the jumbles came up as new.  The clue word “hilly” spells out in alphabetical order.  But, boy!  That answer letter layout makes for one impressive 14-letter jumble, huh?  It definitely didn’t give the answer away.  You really had to pick up on the church/Swiss cheese connection, in order to get today’s answer.

Cute cartoon.  I like when Jeff animates inanimate objects.  If this Jumble thing starts to get old maybe he could hook up with Pixar, or something.  “Be our guest!”  Lot’s of fun today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
