Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 12/16/18

Visual Description:  The scales of justice.

DRYHAL  =  HARDLY,  CORREG  =  GROCER,  DOSWAH  =  SHADOW,  PRACEN  =  PRANCE,  RLIEGL  =  GRILLE,  TORUOP  =  UPROOT   —   Giving us:  HLYGRSADACEGIUT

Clue/Question:  The thief who stole credit card numbers and used them to make purchases was – – –

Pre-Answer:  Three Words  (6-letters)  (2-letters)  (7-letters)

Answer:  GUILTY AS CHARGED

(Hey.  He charged his illicit purchases, so he’s GUILTY!  It looks like he was captured on video, so he definitely was caught red-handed.  Do any of you feel bad for the guy?  I sure don’t!  The shlub.

There don’t appear to be any new clue words today.  But, it looks like all of the jumbles are coming up as new.  I had a little trouble getting both “grocer” and “grille”.  I actually saw “grille” early on, but figured that it wasn’t a real current word, sort of like “shoppe”.  I thought it was likely archaic, and wouldn’t be considered a valid clue word.  But, after getting the final answer, and seeing that I needed the G and I, I had to give into it.  “Prance” was pretty much hiding in plain sight!  The answer letter layout was a very impressive 15-letter jumble.  Not obvious in the least.

Fine courtroom cartoon.  I liked how the visual evidence was on display.  The photo above shows exhibit A and B.  The felon looks like a lowlife, and his lawyer looks like the classic shyster, with the pencil mustache and cheesy comb-over.   The judge isn’t having any of it.  Fun Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
