Cryptoquote Spoiler – 08/22/20

Sophia Loren | 13 of the 1950s' Most Iconic Hairstyles | POPSUGAR ...

If you haven’t cried, your eyes can’t be beautiful.”   —   Sophia Loren

(Those eyes must have done their fair share of crying!  What a beauty!  And, the only surviving female member of AFI’s 50 Greatest Screen Legends.  Sidney Poitier is the surviving male.  We welcome Ms. Loren to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 08/22/20

Watch: NYSE reopens to traders; Gov Andrew Cuomo rings bell - The ...

Visual Description:  At the opening bell?

OHTOP  =  PHOTO,  RUYHR  =  HURRY,  NEITVN  =  INVENT,  FASYEL  =  SAFELY   —   Giving us:  PHORRIETSAF

Clue/Question:  The company went public, which allowed investors to – – –

Boone Pickens, 90, Rang the Closing Bell at the NYSE Today - Oil ...

Answer:  SHARE THE PROFIT

(But, I suppose it could be the closing bell too!  It looks like they’re just about to ring it.  If so, Jumble closed up a robust 25 points!  While the former stalwart, Crossword, closed down either 15 or 19 points.  Ouch!  Hopefully, Will Shortz got in on the ground floor with Jumble.  This is probably a temporary setback for Crossword.  They’ve always been very resilient.

All of today’s clue words are members of the ralis95 Big Board of Clue Words.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, but we have definitely seen “ruyhr” in the past.  The answer letter layout was an enigmatic eleven letter jumble.  It gave nothing away.  It took some thought to get the final answer.

Fine stock exchange cartoon.  Not sure if that is Stacey Cunningham, or Adena Friedman.  I’m pretty sure it’s not Dr. Deborah Birx, AKA:  Scarf Lady!  Jeff and David definitely look happy.  I don’t think Will Shortz benefits from an Uncle Rave kind of blog, or the many imitators, like Jeff and David do.  Pity.  I still do the crossword puzzle, Will!  Oh, wait.  My paper carries the LA Times crossword.  Never mind!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
