Cryptoquote Spoiler – 05/16/20

Picasso and Lee Miller Explored In Scottish National Portrait ...

All children are artists.  The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”   —   Pablo Picasso

(“He”, huh?  Well, I guess it’s pretty well known that Picasso was at least a male chauvinist.  Some say even a misogynist, but I don’t think so.  And, yes.  There is a big difference, despite what the current influencers might say.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  When Bigfoot was spotted near the village, it – – –

The Village Edge Painting by Nikolo Balkanski | Artmajeur

Answer:  CAUSED A SEEN

(Of course it did.  It’s not everyday that you see Bigfoot, especially so close to civilization.  It looks like he’s coming out of the woods, but maybe he just snuck out the backdoor of that corner pub.  He probably had a hankering for some good pub food, and a couple of pints.  Hey, he’s only human.  Or, humanoid.  Sorta.

None of today’s clue words are new.  But, three of the jumbles are coming up as new.  The only definite repeat is “tageen”.  I had a good amount of trouble coming up with “salsa”.  And that makes no sense, because I love salsa!  Maybe, it’s my Euro-centric, white boy upbringing.  Who knows?  But, I really failed to solve “tnhisc”, until I solved the final answer.  Yes, folks.  Yer ol’ uncle had to back into “snitch”.  That’s understandable though.   I’m widely known as a mensch.  A regular guy, who ain’t no rat.  Mama didn’t raise no snitches!  The answer letter layout was vowel heavy, eleven letter jumble.  I thought solving the final answer with out the S, N, and C was pretty nifty.  Someone pat me on the back!

Fine cartoon of a rural village.  The sign on the left side building appears to say some kind of Shoppe.  Maybe a Jumble Shoppe.  But, to me it looks like a pub.  Not sure if the bald guy is supposed to be David L. Hoyt, or just a generic bald guy.  Fun Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
