Visual Description:  The Crossroads of the World.


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


(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

    I thought BUNGEE was a new clue word because I did not remember it. Most times if I do not recall a word it does turn out to be new. I wish there was a “jumble” site where I could enter a word and see if it has been used. Every time I read or hear an “uncommon” word (that I do not remember used in Jumble) I write it down. Then I use a website where you enter a word and it lists how many words can match all the letters of the one I input. Today it was ALIGHT (only 1 match). A few other recent ones are USABLE, CRISIS, NIMBLE, CANON, and (ironic?) JUMBLE.

    I don’t know about my competitors. They could be keeping track of used clue words, or they could have their own “ralis95”, I just don’t know. So, I can’t say with any certitude if Uncle Rave’s Wordy Weblog is your only source for new words. But, I am A source, Gary. — YUR

    I only recently started checking another Jumble solution/fan post. It has a number of regular followers who comment every day. I just found out that the person in charge has been building their own clue word database for 5 years.
    This means you are THE source for new words and I say again I enjoy your views and comments. The other site may (or may not) have bigger audience but you are #1 in my book.

    Thanks so much, Gary. I really appreciate you saying that. I haven’t check any of them in ages, but something about the comments from some – maybe not all – of the “regular followers” seemed a little canned to me. Almost as if they’d set up dummy profiles, and were writing them their-self. Of course I have no way of knowing if my suspicions have any merit, but that was the general vibe I was getting. If that were the case, that would be kind of sad. I prefer the traffic that comes my way. — YUR

    BUNGEE came quickly. However my handy dandy Franklin Spelling Ace advised it was not a word. So, today, I pulled up our trusted blog and found I was OK w/BUNGEE. Good Jumble. I have visited NYC one time. Had a wonderful time, was all over the place. LL

    I’m really not surprised that your Franklin Spelling Ace did not have it, LindaLee. I haven’t researched it, but I don’t think BUNGEE has been a recognized word for all THAT long. I’m pretty sure it wasn’t used in “Beowulf”, or any of Shakespeare works, or in Samuel Pepys’ diaries! LOL! — YUR
