Cryptoquote Spoiler – 08/02/19

Half the work that is done in the world is to make things appear what they are not.”   —   E.R. Beadle

(Elias Root Beadle was a reverend of the Presbyterian Church, in the 19th century.  It’s kind of a odd quote, but strangely true.  We welcome Rev. Beadle to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  SAME I LEVEL

(Perhaps the most overused word in the English language!  Usually, people like this are actually pretty insecure.  It’s a positive self-reinforcement kind of thing, to constantly toot your own horn.  This made for a good pun though.

We have another brand new clue word today, in “spoken”.  Our friend, ralis95, will have to update his world famous clue word database.  All of the jumbles are coming up as new today.  I had a little trouble coming up with “italic”, but I didn’t have to back into it.  The answer letter layout was a nicely cryptic ten letter jumble.  It gave nothing away.

Fine coffee shop cartoon.  Today’s Family Circus reminded me a little of some of our favorite seaside Jumbles.  There’s a sailboat on the horizon.  But, it’s not sinking.  Good, fun Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
