Jumble Spoiler – 01/11/19

Visual Description:  1 percenter showoffs!


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


(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

    Between CRISIS (which I didn’t have in my list until today) and MATERIALISTIC, I needed almost six stupefying minutes to run this one down. Lots of common letters made for lots of possibilities. I figured either SIT or SEAT would feature in the final answer. BZZZT. Nice rabbit holes. I did think of -ATIC, -ITIC, and -ISTIC, but still had trouble finding MATERIAL until I stumbled on it randomly typing stuff close enough to see it.

    Excellent puzzle, guys! Well-clued. Good flow from clue to answer and great cartoon.

    Stuff on all!

    Sometimes you really have to pick up on the visual clues, David. Both of the hipsters are lovingly stroking the newly upholstered sofa. For me, that was the major clue to the word MATERIAL. The things I mentioned in my comments were the other things that made me think of MATERIALISTIC. Great Friday Jumble, huh? — YUR

    Absolutely. At 13 letters, it was a lot of good MATERIAL to work with!
