Jumble Spoiler – 03/27/20

Two men standing in the doorway of a log cabin. Date unknown ...

Visual Description:  Dealing with cabin fever?

IRPVE  =  VIPER,  FWREA  =  WAFER,  MYCLPO  =  COMPLY,  TURVIE  =  VIRTUE   —   Giving us:  VIPEWAEOMPVIRE

Clue/Question:  The on-demand documentary about wood pulp production was a – – –

Protecting And Restoring Forests To Save Civilization | TreeHugger

Answer: PAPER“-VIEW MOVIE

(Good thing this isn’t smell-o-vision, because the heat and chemicals used to pulp wood chips for making paper creates a big stink.  The reaction produces stinky sulfur gases called “total reduced sulfur” or TRS gases.  Oh, and also ammonia and other funky smelling chemicals.  Besides the stink, these gases can cause health issues.  I’d expect the worker in the documentary would be wearing some kind of mask.  You do not want to live downwind of one of these paper mills.

No new clue words today.  All old friends.  However, all of today’s jumbles do appear to be new.  I thought both “myclpo” and “turvie” were fairly challenging!  The answer letter layout was a massive fourteen letter jumble.  Not obvious, in and of itself.  The quotation marks and the hyphen led me fairly quickly to “PAPER-VIEW”.  The VIEOM got me to MOVIE.

Kind of an unusual cartoon.  A nice, big flat-screen TV above the roaring fireplace.  Clearly, the two men are in a cabin.  One of them appears to be a lumberjack, and the other either a park ranger, or a Mountie! I’m going to try to not read too much into the relationship.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
