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

    SLASH was a new word for me and the hardest part of this puzzle. I had to back into it, and that’s hard to do now playing online.

    I believe that the Flash version of Jumble online, which looks exactly as it does in print and made speed solving easy for good typists, has broken down. It stopped working for me on multiple websites a week or so ago. I was expecting that to happen later this year as Adobe plug will officially pull the plug for Flash in Windows by 12/31/2020, but Flash fail has come seven months early to Jumble.

    We still have the mobile version of Jumble available online, but that one is poorly designed and buggy and never worked as well as the Flash version, at least on Windows PCs. It’s a relatively frustrating, less fun way to play Jumble. You can’t see the entire puzzle until you’ve solved earlier parts of it, so backing in is harder or impossible. You also often have to repeatedly restart the puzzle and reenter what you previously entered to finish it, if you’ve made a typo or need to experiment with different letter combinations to solve the final answer. It gets old.

    So it’s a good time to be a print-consuming dinosaur! Unfortunately for me and Jumble I’m done with paper periodicals and have been for years.

    Really, David??? With the crap that you just described you still diss print? Did you just have your own digital moment, or does the online version actually have SLASH instead of SHAWL? — YUR

    Oh, sorry, you’re right, that was a “digital moment” common to those of us who stare at electronic pixels over ink ones. “Slash” is what I *wanted* to enter at first, and it even has the A in the right place, but SHAWL was the correct answer today, even online.

    There’s nothing wrong with print. It served the colonies and the cold warriors very well.

    It’s just me. I like trees better than piles of paper I skimmed once and then had to take out to the trash. In 2020 recycling has ended where I live. No market for it. They either had to landfill it or pay to warehouse it, hoping the market would recover, so they killed it. Probably coming soon to most.

    UR,

    It was a KNOTTY problem to be BEATEN out to
    TAKE PART in a possible Great Movie!!!

    I feel as if I have to PROVE myself all over again^^ In the meantime I’ ll just lower my head and shuffle along with my girlfriend’s SHAWL wrapped around me in the shame of it all!!☆
