Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/05/19

Image result for bee vs wasp sting

If the bee bites you once, it’s the bee’s fault.  If the bee bites you twice, it’s your fault.”   —   Source Obscure

(This is a truism that is filled with errors.  It is physically impossible for a bee to ‘bite’ more than once, because their stinger and venom sac, and part of their lower abdomen, get ripped out when the bee flies off . . . to die within minutes.  A wasp however can sting – not bite – you many times, as their stingers stay intact.  Bees sting only defensively, while wasps can be more aggressive.  But, if you don’t give a wasp a reason to sting you – like swatting at it – they’ll usually just leave you alone.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  The price she paid for an NYC cab ride to 45th and Broadway was – – –

Image result for the crossroad of the world Times Square

Answer:  FARE AND SQUARE

(Times Square, baby!  It is a thing to behold.  So many lights, so many people, and crazy crazy traffic.  I’ve seen it many times, both on foot, and in my car.  Unless you’re there to specifically see it, I would avoid it.  It takes a while to get through it.  But, I would recommend it to anyone who visits NYC as a tourist.  It’s quite a sight!

Hoyt has given us another new clue word today, in “bungee”.   The other three are old favorites.  Our buddy, ralis95, will have to update his world famous clue word database once again.  And, if David L. Hoyt is reading this, it looks like word BUNGLE is still outstanding.  All of the jumbles came up as new.  The answer letter layout was a cryptic thirteen letter jumble.  It gave nothing away.

It was the cartoon, its dialog, and the address in the clue/question, that leads you to the final answer.  It’s a good pun.  Great view from the backseat of a New York City taxi!  I haven’t ridden in one in ages, so I couldn’t tell you how far her $8 fare got her.  Fun Jumble though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
