Cryptoquote Spoiler – 02/19/19

Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind.  Be led by the dreams in your heart.”   —   Roy T. Bennett

(I’ve got mixed feelings about “motivational” quotes.  Maybe it’s just because I spent too much time working in Corporate America.  This one is okay, I guess.  But regardless, we welcome Roy to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 02/19/19

 

Visual Description:  Late ’70s cinema.

RIOVS  =  VISOR,  CATTR  =  TRACT,  GILWEG  =  WIGGLE,  EESWFT  =  FEWEST   —   Giving us:  VIRTRAWGEEES

Clue/Question:  Many people saw “Star Wars” multiple times and gave it – – –

Answer:  GREAT REVIEWS

(One of the two biggest movies – well, maybe three – of the 1970s.  “Star Wars”, “Jaws” and “Rocky”.  They all spawned a great number of sequels.  The “Star Wars” franchise is still going great guns – blasters? – with the “Rocky” franchise close behind.  “Jaws” may have been played out, but you can never say never when it comes to the cold-blooded, toothy monster of the deep!

None of today’s clue words came up as new.  However, three of the jumbles did.  The one we’ve definitely seen before is “gilweg”.  The answer letter layout was a brilliant 12-letter jumble.  I don’t think it gave away a thing.  The clue/question, and the one piece of dialog, clued me into the pun portion of the answer.  I had to kind of figure out GREAT from TRAGE.  But, it didn’t really take any effort.

Another great cartoon, as usual.  The hairstyles look like from the ’70s, and the movie theater kinda looks like it’s pre-multi-plex.  Another great trip down memory lane, huh folks?!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
