Jumble Spoiler – 12/26/18

Visual Description:  Gluttony fed by avarice.

DUGEN  =  NUDGE,  WLEDL  =  DWELL,  BURUNA  =  AUBURN,  LRIFAY  =  FAIRLY   —   Giving us:  DGEELARAL

Clue/Question:  Voting to raise prices more than 500 percent, the selfish business people – – –

Answer:  ALL AGREED

(Oh, well.  I guess we have to put the spirit of Christmas in the rear view mirror, and get back to the unfortunate reality of . . . the world.  Sigh!  It was fun while it lasted.  Hope everyone had a pleasant holiday.

No new clue words today.  However, all of the jumbles appear to be new.  I did not struggle with any of them.  The answer letter layout was a splendid jumble too.  It was sufficiently cryptic.  The hyphen and the quotation marks were the big clues, along with the cartoon and its dialog.

The cartoon does a fine job of showing a corporate boardroom.  They all voted to gouge their customers, despite lower costs.  These guys should invite Martin Shkreli to their little cabal.  I know he’d vote with them!  Be better than these cretins, folks.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I liked this final answer very much and also saw it as a dig at the scumballs who jack up prices on generic drugs. Obviously there are some folks in need of fair price competition.

    Stay healthy, all!
