Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 04/05/20

Did William Shakespeare Say He Was Always Happy Because He Didn't ...

A jest’s prosperity lies in the ear of him who hears it, never in the tongue of him that makes it.”   —   Shakespeare

(You can tell a really great joke, but if the material is even a little dated, or it’s too cerebral, most people just aren’t going to get it.  That’s why Bill wrote for the unwashed masses, and not the elites!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 04/05/20

Charles Schulz | Biography, Peanuts, & Facts | Britannica

Visual Description:  Being mentored by the master!

SERUUP  =  PURSUE,  WHGORT  =  GROWTH,  CURPES  =  SPRUCE,  FCLIEK  =  FICKLE,  AMENOB  =  BEMOAN,  HNIWIT  =  WITHIN   —  Giving us:  RSUGOPREFIKOANWTN

Clue/Question:  Cartoonist Charles M. Schulz was able to earn a good living by – – –

Pre-Answer:  Three Words  (7-letters)  (3-letters)  (7-letters) 

Charles M. Schulz | The Douglas P. Cooper Distinguished ...

Answer:  WORKING FOR PEANUTS

(Another great stinky pun!  Even though Charles has been dead for a little over twenty years, many newspapers still carry syndicated re-runs of “Peanuts”.  Not mine, but plenty do.  He’s an icon of the cartooning world, and “Peanuts” is part of our American experience.

None of today’s clue words are new, although I – once again – tried to make one, in “puruse”!  Good thing even my mistake contained the correct three circled letters.  I didn’t catch it until I tried to look it up in the world famous ralis95 clue word database.  I couldn’t believe that it wasn’t there, so when I paged down to the PUs I saw “pursue”.  Sometimes yer Uncle is a big dope.  Five of the six jumbles appear to be new, with only “curpes” having definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout was a massive seventeen letter jumble, which did a fantastic job of disguising the final answer.  At first, I thought the answer was going to be something FOR KNOWING, as awkward as that sounded.  Fortunately, with the remaining RSUPEAT I was able to gleam PEANUTS.  Then I saw the pun!  I might be Captain Obvious sometimes, but occasionally the obvious escapes me!

Great cartoon of Jeff meeting one of his idols.  Not sure if this actually occurred, but it certainly made for a fine cartoon.  Great Sunday Jumble, guys!  Everybody stay safe.  Listen to all the health experts.  Maintain a proper social distancing, until we can get back to the REAL normal.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  To get through this pandemic, Mel Brooks recommends watching less news, and singing this WWII song.      YUR
