Cryptoquote Spoiler – 03/06/19

No new horror can be more terrible than the daily torture of the commonplace.”   —   H. P. Lovecraft

(Kind of a tragic figure.  A little like a literary Van Gogh, he knew no commercial success during his lifetime.  Sad.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 03/06/19

 

Visual Description:  Expansion strategy meeting.

CLACE  =  CABLE,  SAHLS  =  SLASH,  ARFITF  =  TARIFF,  PLAWOL  =  WALLOP   —   Giving us:  CLSLAWO

Clue/Question:  The new restaurant chain offered a healthful menu at all of their – – –

Answer: LOWCALS

(Now, that’s a sneaky stinky pun!  It took me a minute or two to see it.  Every now and then, the shorter answers can be as challenging as the long ones.  And, this was one of those times.  I bet some of you might have been thinking “COL-SLAW”.

Yesterday, I suffered some kind of brain-fart, and I imagined one of the five letter clue words to be QUIRKY, a six letter clue word.  I guess I was a little distracted when I was doing a search of the ralis95 clue word database.  Maybe I visually brought down the Y from HANDY . . . I don’t know.  But, even though it was NOT a new clue word for yesterday’s Jumble, as the actual clue word was simply QUIRK, it is an eligible new clue word for a future Jumble!  Today, like yesterday – ahem! – there are no new clue words.  And, three of the four jumbles have been used before, with only “arfitf” being new.  The answer letter layout was a clever jumble that disguised the final answer very nicely.

Fun cartoon of some hipster restaurant execs.  The seated woman looks like she’s opened a box of grass.  Someone is having some kind of burger – probably a veggie burger – on what looks to be a multi-grain bun.  There’s some kind of bean soup . . . possibly a chili.  No doubt it’s meatless.  And, the goateed, spectacled dude appears to have an order of celery sticks!  Looks like a little slice of hell to me!  I’ll take the greasy, artery clogging stuff any day, over the healthy stuff.  Life is too short.  Balance it out with a nice green side salad.  And, don’t fool yourself that washing it down with a diet soda is going to even things out!  Because it doesn’t.  If anything it just makes things worse.  Don’t eat fast food every day though.  Use a little common sense.  Everything in moderation, folks.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
