(It can definitely be hard to find some specific things.  So often you just have to hack through the crap, to get to the good.  I believe this is the first of Mitch’s quotes to be used in the Cryptoquote, at least since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  So, today, we welcome Mr. Kapor to the Cryptoquote Club!  Seems like a really chill dude.  We need more people like Mitch Kapor.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 05/22/20

Movie Jumble.....Spicy Witch World

Visual Description:  Jumble:  The Movie!

HWLAS  =  SHAWL,  RVEOP  =  PROVE,  TTOKYN  =  KNOTTY,  BEENTA  =  BEATEN   —   Giving us:  APRKTTEA

Clue/Question:  The audition was for the lead role, and there were plenty of actors there to – – –

Joe Scarborough Gloats Over Donald Trump Win: Media Had a 'Blind Spot'

Answer:  TAKE PART

(Lead role, huh?  Was this cleared with Mr. David L. Hoyt?  I think Jeff Knurek must be getting a really big head!  Branching out into music, like he’s Kevin Bacon, or Gary Sinise, or shudder . . . Joe Scarborough!  And, now he thinks HE’S the lead role in Jumble:  The Movie???  Wow.  No words.  SMH.  JKLOL.  RSVP.  SASE.  LSMFT.  Only unrelated acronyms.

Would you believe that the real star of the show, David L. Hoyt, my cousin – seven times removed, has given us a brand new clue word today, in “shawl”?  Well, it’s not on my latest version of the ralis95 clue word database, so it must be new!  Right, Angela?  LOL!  All of today’s jumbles are coming up as new.  I had a little trouble with “hwlas”.  I’m noting that “knotty” spells out in alphabetical order.  And, I was almost “beaten” by “beenta”.  Way to hide in plain sight!  Atleast I didn’t have to back into it.  The answer letter layout was a great eight letter jumble.  Ya know, if the guys were really clever, they could’ve made it a pun on PARTAKE.  You know, with a hyphen and quotation marks.  “PART-TAKE”  Or, maybe they’ve done that one before?

Great audition cartoon!  At first glance, I though Tom Cruise was Mick Jagger!  But, I can definitely see Tom.  Great Samuel L. Jackson.  He could play the part of Hoyt.  Passable Tom Hanks.  He’s got a hint of Stephen Colbert in him.  Not sure if that’s Jack Black, or Zach Galifianakis, or one of Jeff’s Wilco buddies.  Look at Jeff on the phone, trying to convince me to audition to play him.  Dream on, buddy!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Sometimes Scarborough reminds me of Beeker from The Muppets!   —   YUR
