Visual Description:  EMTs to the rescue!

ZRAHDA  =  HAZARD,  VINTAE  =  NATIVE,  PRUYYS  =  SYRUPY,  EEBARK  =  BEAKER,  LIPTER  =  TRIPLE,  LWEFOL  =  FELLOW   —   Giving us:  HADNTISYAETIEFW

Clue/Question:  He’d passed out while shopping, and they didn’t have the – – –

Pre-Answer:  Three Words  (8-letters)  (4-letters)  (3-letters)

Image result for have you no sense of decency

Answer:  FAINTEST IDEA WHY

(But, the EMTs have their fingers on the pulse of things.  They are used to working under pressure.  They will get to the heart of the matter in no time.  If need be, they can fast-track him to the ER.

All six of the clue words are familiar old friends.  But today, all of the jumbles have come up as new!  Usually, we have a mix of something old and something new.  The answer letter layout was an interesting fifteen letter jumble.  I thought it hid the final answer beautifully.  The cartoon and dialog were the big clues, for me.

Great mall scene cartoon.  I blame the wife!  The poor guy.  We can’t shop like you girls can!  We need to find a pretzel, or Cinn-a-bon, or ice cream every now and then.  His blood pressure is too low.  He’s hypoglycemic!   You girls are just trying to kill us.  Have you no sense of mercy, ladies???  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I had trouble with “triple” and “beaker”. Not the faintest idea why. I did get the solution quickly. I thought it was a great play on words and not one of the “stinky puns”. Could it be considered a “pun”? I consider any solution that uses quotes and/or hyphen to be a pun. Your thoughts, UR?

    I think that quotation marks, especially with hyphens, help to pin down the pun aspect of some answers. But, I think that all the Jumble answers are puns of some sort. I think Hoyt uses the quotes – and sometimes hyphens – for the more homophonic puns, Gary. — YUR

    BEAKER gave me fits. On the answer, I got IDEA and WHY right away and while unjumbling the remaining letters, FAINTEST popped in.

    Shopping is not for the faint of heart. Shopping is looking and browsing, it’s not about going into a store to find one thing and head out the door. That would be an errand! IMHO!!

    The guys continue to churn out grand puzzlers, our Unc continues to inform and entertain, and I’m always amazed and appreciative. LL

    I come from a long family line of fainters. The last two times I fainted were in a hospital, one visiting my dad at age 12, the other on a job interview at age 24. I’ve long since overcome my aversion to hospitals and medical situations. Back then they just stuck a bottle of smelling salts under your nose and told you to get up walk it off. And you did.

    The problem with fainting in a public place like a mall these days is they’re going to call an ambulance. And once you get to the ER, they’re going to run a bunch of fishing-expedition medical tests and send you a whopping bill that will cause you to faint again.

    Almost always, the problem causing a fainting episode is not a medical emergency. (See “vasovagal episode,” or alternatively low blood sugar or dehydration either of which is easily treated with a can of soda.) But every once in a while, the problem causing a patient to faint is a medical emergency that needs to go to an ER, like a stroke. You can refuse care and probably be fine, but you’re rolling the dice.

    LindaLee, You ladies treat shopping like it’s the decathlon, or something! LOL! We guys can’t possibly keep up!

    David, We’re on the same page! — YUR
