Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/01/20

Freedom from effort in the present merely means that there has been effort stored up in the past.”   —   Theodore Roosevelt

(Teddy was a straight talker, but he was far from crass, unlike some President that we know.  He also had vision, and a very strong sense of what was fair and just.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 10/01/20

Ulysses eBook: James Joyce: Amazon.in: Kindle Store

Visual Description:  A 1930’s cocktail party.

AGEMO  =  OMEGA,  NOYRI  =  IRONY,  GROJEG  =  JOGGER,  COIYID  =  IDIOCY   —   Giving us:  OERYJEDC

Clue/Question:  James wrote novels such as “Dubliners” and “Ulysses”, and his readers – – –

Talks to have James Joyce's remains returned to Ireland

Answer:  REJOYCED

(Wow!  A literary stinky pun.  I definitely can’t recall when I last – if ever – saw one of these.  I can see this as being the start of a whole new branch of Jumbles.  I’m sure that there are loads of authors’ names that can be played around with.  Burns, Carroll, Dickens, Donne, Frost, Harte, London, Poe, Wells and Wilde are some that could be punned around with.  Ooh.  Things could get interesting, folks.

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new.  We’ve definitely seen “agemo” before.  And, I’m sure it won’t be the . . . last time we see it too.  I saw them all this morning right away again.  The answer letter layout was a decent eight letter jumble.  I would never claim to be well-read, but I do know a pretty good amount of who wrote what.  So, I was able to get this final answer easily.

Fun period piece cartoon.  I suppose this could also be the 1920s, but the book “Ulysses” was banned in so many places, and was only made readily available in the U.S. in 1934.  J.J. was a man ahead of his time.  Nowadays Joyce is highly revered.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
