Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 07/07/19

What the world needs is more geniuses with humility.  There are so few of us left.”   —   (Not YUR)  Oscar Levant

(This guy actually was a genius.  I’m just a wise-guy, wannabe – kinda dualistic – bonehead/genius.  A very clever quote, but a very easy Cryptoquote solve.  I always note the punctuation first, so I saw THERE ARE right off the bat.  And then THE.  I’ve visited his grave before, in Westwood Village Memorial Park.  Which is in LA, but NOT “downtown” Los Angeles, as was pointed out to me by one of my readers some time ago.  If you’re ever in LA, I highly recommend visiting WVMP, as it’s only an acre or so large, but has so many big name celebrities – of all ilk – buried there.  Forest Lawn Memorial Park is like 300 acres, and would take you multiple days to get through.  The picture I chose of Oscar shows the effects of his life of smoking.  He died of a heart attack, at only 65.  I may not be a genius, but I still have my own teeth, and don’t look like some sort of ghoul.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  The Tower of Big Ben . . . again.

DIOIGN  =  INDIGO,  GHUTTA  =  TAUGHT,  RUNEMA  =  MANURE,  CTIELI  =  ELICIT,  TOAANS  =  SONATA,  GLIEMN  =  MINGLE   —   Giving us:  IDGTAMAEIINTAMNE

Clue/Question:  They’d seen London’s famous clock tower on numerous occasions and enjoyed it – – –

Pre-Answer:  Four Words  (4-letters) (3-letters) (4-letters) (5-letters) 

Image result for tourists at Big Ben

Answer:  TIME AND TIME AGAIN

(Of course!  With a big, famous clock tower you just had to know that the word TIME was going to be part of the answer.  My initial reaction, after reading the clue/question, and before looking at the answer letter layout was:  EACH AND EVERY TIME.  Of course the letters didn’t allow for that particular answer, but it allowed me to see the actual answer.  Maybe they’ve used EACH AND EVERY TIME before.  Or, maybe we’ll see it in the future???

I just had to go out on a limb yesterday, and say that our friend Hoyt would NOT give us a new clue word today!  Well, he did it anyway.  Yup, somehow they have avoided using the world’s oldest fertilizer – “manure” – until today.  So, our good friend, ralis95, will have to add it to his world famous database!  Five of the six jumbles appear to be new, with “ghutta” having definitely been used some time in the past.  The answer letter layout was an impressive sixteen letter jumble.  Nothing given away there.  The final answer was set up perfectly by the clue/question and the cartoon, with its dialog.

Another top notch Big Ben cartoon, from our buddy, Jeff.  Ya gotta love his stereotypical tourists!  Some just pointing up, another taking a picture with his cell phone.  And, the main characters, especially the guy, with his Union Jack tee-shirt, Rolling Stones baseball cap, and a fanny-pack, taking a selfie using a selfie-stick!  Classic!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
