Cryptoquote Spoiler – 01/11/19

In order to keep my creativity alive, I just try to enjoy life to the fullest.”   —   G-Dragon

(The King of K-Pop!  lwc knew that!  LOL!  I made a semi-educated guess, and was right.  I bet my granddaughter, Lina, knows who this is.  She’s a big fan of some Korean boy band.  I forget their name, but they kind of look like teenage girls to me.  She’d be highly offended to hear that!  Well, anyway, I guess we need to welcome G-Dragon to the Cryptoquote Club.  Welcome, Ji!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 01/11/19

Visual Description:  1 percenter showoffs!

CIWET  =  TWICE,  TAMLE  =  METAL,  CAGIRL  =  GARLIC,  SIRICS  =  CRISIS   —   Giving us:  TIEMTAARLCIIS

Clue/Question:  The couple who had their sofa re-covered with a very expensive fabric were – – –

Answer:  MATERIALISTIC

(This is a good stinky pun!  Kind of a literal/figurative pun.  I almost expected a hyphen between the L and the I, but it works regardless.

No new clue words today.  Three of the jumbles did come up as new, with “ciwet” having definitely been used before.  I didn’t find any of them difficult.  The answer letter layout was a very impressive 13-letter jumble.  I wouldn’t be surprised if some of you struggled a bit to get the final answer.

Great cartoon of a couple of yuppies/preppies.  Is that what they’re still called?  Is there a specific term for rich hipsters?  That’s a funky looking, modern statue of . . . a dog.  A modern looking couch, a marble pillar, and a photo of the couple with their pricey sports car completes the scene.  Is shag carpeting making a comeback?  Could be, I suppose.  They say everything old is new again.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
