Jumble Spoiler – 01/16/19

Visual Description:  Scales for . . . the blind?

CIBHR  =  BIRCH,  GRIET  =  TIGER,  SDWHER  =  SHREWD,  ONWWID  =  WINDOW   —   Giving us:  IRHTGESHWDWIOW

Clue/Question:  Their new talking scale had a – – –

Answer:  WEIGH WITH WORDS

(A wonderfully stinky pun!  Somebody break out the Unstopables.  Of all the air fresheners, that one seems to be the most effective.  Of course, when I’m on my . . . er, game . . . nothing can stop me!  This is a weird kind of old man brag.  I look great on the outside, but I must be decaying on the inside.  At least from the smell of things.

All of today’s clue words are from the Jumble Clue Word Hall of Fame again.  Definitely no need for ralis95 to take any action.  But, all of the jumbles appear to be new today.  I got them all right away again.  The answer letter layout was a super impressive 14-letter jumble!  Nothing obvious about it, although I did get the answer immediately.  Musta been all the W’s.

Kind of a stock bathroom cartoon.  Although, it is a little creepy that that the talking scale has eyes.  I’m guessing that the scale was programmed to be a healthy hetero-male, from the way it’s fawning over the wife.  Maybe hubby needs to invest in one that’s been programmed to be a hetero-female?  Nah!  Scrap that.  It would probably be even more critical of him.  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Your commentary made me LOL today, Unc. You often pick up on details in the cartoon (here, the eyes) I didn’t notice and make them entertaining.

    This puzzle went down bang-bang-bang for me, too, but I did like it. I haven’t been a big fan of talking electronic devices that we never knew needed to talk ever since our 1986 Nissan came in gabby. Eddie Murphy had a great stand-up comedy routine on “Talking Cars.” I’m sure some people with vision issues would like a talking scale, but I’ll pass.

    I’ll be going “off the grid” soon for a few weeks. Nothing’s wrong; I’m just traveling without access to Windows which I need to play the online Flash version of Jumble. I’ll catch up on both puzzles and the blog when I get back.

    Weigh in, all!

    Grr. Didn’t get the answer, as I wrote down a wrong letter. That and getting stuck on ‘weight’, not bothering to count the letters. 😦

    I had sooooo many Garfield books in the early 90s. Used to love his conversations with the scales haha.
