Clue/Question:  Can most people correctly pronounce the name of Iceland’s capital?

Answer:  ITS HARD TO SAY

(Especially for Americans, who can barely speak just English!  By and large, we’re an arrogant, lazy lot.  We kinda figure that everyone else should just learn English . . . dag nab it!  I’ve seen/heard a few different pronunciations of Reykjavik.  Sometimes it is with a silent J.  Sometimes the J is kind of pronounced like a EA, or a Y.  And, sometimes the Icelanders pronounce the K more like a G.  And, some claim that you’re supposed to roll the R a bit!  So, it can be a little funky to pronounce.

No new clue words today.  Two of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen both “debia” and “gitams” in the past.  I promise not to preach the proper pronunciation of “foyer” this time.  Some folk got a little uppity last time.  The answer letter layout was a fine twelve letter jumble.  Nothing obvious about it. 

Fine cartoon of the Icelandic airport.  I like the plane at the ramp, and the plane taking off.  Also, the folks with wheeling their carry-ons, and the Arrival/Departure board in the background.  Lots of fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
