Jumble Spoiler – 01/23/19


Visual Description:  A very proud pride.


Clue/Question:  When the lions figured out how to build a fire, it was a – – –



(What a silly, stinky pun!  And, I love it!  Lions . . . making a fire.  And then boasting about it.  All for the sake of a pun.  I guess the pride taking down an antelope, and celebrating that, might have been just a little too graphic for the funny pages.  And of course, we wouldn’t have gotten the double meaning, like we did with the fire.

Hoyt has taken a break from giving us gnu clue words.  I guess he didn’t want to tax ralis95 too much.  However, all four jumbles appear to be gnu.  It took me quite a while to come up with “gecko”.  I didn’t have to back into it, but it did have me going.  The answer letter layout was a beautiful 14-letter jumble.  It hid the final answer very nicely.  My first impulse was:  something OCCASION.  But, both words had to be 7-letters long, not eight.  I think it was the second male lion that tipped me off to the answer.  He was kind of the bonus clue.

Great African savanna scene, with an Umbrella Thorn Acacia in the background.  I’m not great at identifying critters by their hooves, but I’ll take a leap that it’s a springbok!  Love the lions.  But, I do believe that the front missy’s tail is on fire!  I think that the veldt is in for a different kind of roar.  One of pain!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I think they used her tail to get the fire started. 😀
