Jumble Spoiler – 09/07/19

Visual Description:  Le Pont Neuf, de Rive Droit?

NUYFN  =  FUNNY,  PIRGE  =  GRIPE,  CIFLEK  =  FICKLE,  SECASC  =  ACCES  —   Giving us:  NNIEIES

Clue/Question:  No one could swim across the Paris river underwater.  That would be – – –

Answer:  INSEINE

(Sacré bleu!  Quel un calembour malodorant!  Almost as stinky as my high school French!  With a little help from Google Translate, of course.  And, where is Crazy Eddie when you need him?  Actually, the store was called Crazy Eddie’s, but the wild man in the commercials was a DJ named Jerry Carroll.  The electronics store has been defunct for quite some time, and unless you lived in the Northeastern part of the U.S. you might not even know what the heck I’m talking about.  Is Uncle Rave “In-Seine”?  By now, you guys should know that I mainly write this stuff for my own amusement.  So, maybe I am a little fou – lish.

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  The two middle jumbles are coming up as new/nouvelle/nueva, but we’ve definitely seen “nuyfn” and “secasc” in days gone by.  The answer letter layout was a concise seven letter jumble.  It may have stumped you, if you are completely unfamiliar with the “City of Lights”.  I’ve yet to get there, but it’s on my bucket list.

I’m sure Jeff has been there.  Probably David L. Hoyt as well.  Jeff’s cartoon gives you a good idea of what you’d see from one side of the Seine to the other.  Actually, I don’t know which is rive gauche, or rive droit, or if the Eiffel Tower is on the Ile de la Cité, or anything really.  I’m just your mouthy uncle.  Remember?  Any Francophiles out there?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I knew as soon as I got the answer that Unc would call it a stinky pun. 😀
