Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 11/10/19 (Oh, ralis95!)

Visual Description:  Dick Clark, before botox and hair dye.


Clue/Question:  When it came to #1 songs in 1964, the Beatles were – – –

Pre-Answer:  Four Words  (5-letters) (3-letters) “(4-letters)-(4-letters)

(This was not a gimme!  When I first saw the question and answer letter layout I thought:  Uh oh!  For a few minutes I thought I might have to put it out there for one of you guys to solve.  I was trying to come up with a relevant song at first.  But, it ended up being a play on the Beatles’ early nickname:  The Fab Four.

Surprisingly, Hoyt gave us another new clue word today, in “puffin”.  So, it looks like more work for ralis95, and his world famous clue word database.  The other five were interesting clue words, but not new.  All six jumbles came up as new.  The answer letter layout was a super sixteen letter jumble.  Nothing obvious about it.  Somehow, I saw FIRST, and the rest fell into place.

I’m glad that the “American Bandstand” sign was behind Dick Clark, because my first impression was a young Bob Barker, with maybe a little Ernie Anastos thrown in!  Only people in the Metro NYC area know Ernie, but I’ll show you a photo.  But, I can see Dick Clark too!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    If you thought this final answer was hard to come up with, try coming up with the final answer for today’s *online* Jumble puzzle:
    (Note that if you’re viewing this puzzle after Sunday, November 10, 2019, there is no way to directly link you to that puzzle. You have to click the link above, then click the little calendar icon above the cartoon, and then click on “11-10-19.”)

    Anyway once you can see the Sunday puzzle online, you’ll notice that though Jeff’s cartoon is the same as the print version, the regular words are all different. The grid layout for the final answer is also different. When you solve the regular words in this online puzzle, you come up with letters that can be unscrambled to form a valid phrase, but it has nothing to do with the Beatles, the cartoon, or the hint. (I’d repeat the solution here, but I’d probably be spoiling next week’s Sunday final answer solution with a different cartoon.)

    Friday I said that the daily online Flash version was unsolvable, but we hadn’t had any major glitches in a Sunday online Jumble for a while. That streak ended today too.

    Good times.

    I guess not everyone can, but this is as good a reason as any to stay low tech! — YUR

    The jumble/clue words, the answer letter layout, and the final answer were LAST Sunday’s Jumble (11/03/19). Someone put up today’s cartoon, but forgot to clear out last weeks words and answer! Jeff and David will not be happy about this. But, this should be remedied easily. Thanks for letting someone know. I’ll try to forward this info to them via email.

    I did not get started on the Jumble until almost midnight and about to give up. I have only done that once this year. I kept thinking there must be a clue in the cartoon somewhere. Being a Beatles puzzle, I was sure FOUR was one of the words. I also felt the 3 letter word was AND. It bothered me that “number one songs” was here TWICE. Hmm, #1…FIRST! Now it all fit.

    I was sure PUFFIN was used before. I have mentioned another site for Jumble fans. I did look at it after I did my first comment here. That site said that PUFFIN was used on April 14, 2019 so I found your post and you did identify it as new (along with SMUGLY). Even stranger, the other site thought MALLET was new. I debated posting this but you seem to be (like me) open to being told of a mistake. I welcome the truth. BTW, a friend of mine in Rome posted a photo of her and her grandson together at the Savoy just yesterday.

    Not to beat a dead horse, but over a cup of tea I thought that it is possible there was a problem with the database which would explain why you thought it was new.

    Thanks, Gary! I looked at the post pf 04/14/19, and both PUFFIN and SMUGLY were identified as new clue words. I checked the Subject line, and I did add “Oh, ralis95!” to it. This is what I thought was the way to get him to look at his email, because he does not do the Sunday Jumble. I suppose he just could have overlooked that email, as neither PUFFIN or SMUGLY are on the June version of his database. I know he’s getting up there, and with advancing age comes more and more health issues, so things like the clue word database could easily take a backseat to more pressing matters. The copy of the database he sends me is Read Only, so all I can do is what I’ve been doing. I don’t know the source of the other site’s clue word database, so I can’t comment on MALLET.

    I’m glad The Savoy is still operating, and it’s still popular. I guess it’s an institution in Rome! A few years ago I went to The Northside, in East Rochester NY, with my mother. Neither one of us had eaten there in years, and boy were we disappointed. The service was slow, and the food was unrewarding. I guess not every place stays the same. — YUR

    No, Gary. I really think it was just a communication issue. As far as I know, ralis95 is still a “Follower”, so he should be getting the emails, but like I said in my other reply he may have just missed it.
