Jumble Spoiler – 10/02/20

How to Have Proper Etiquette in the Office Cubicle

Visual Description:  Cubicle humor.

NGLUC  =  CLUNG,  RAHDO  =  HOARD,  CLIPES  =  SPLICE,  GIKSIN  =  SKIING   —   Giving us:  LUNODSPESN

Clue/Question:  The accountant forgot to add the last number on the page and sat there – – –

VINTAGE SHARP WORKING CALCULATOR EL 1182 S Electronic Printing PAPER 120V  Table | eBay

Answer:  NONPLUSSED

(It works as a stinky pun.  But, now I’m perplexed.  The initial definition of “nonplussed” says:  unsure about what to say, think, or do”.  But, the *chiefly US* usage has it as:  “not bothered, surprised, or impressed by something”.  I don’t know about you guys, but to me those are not the same things.  The former is more confused, while the latter is more blasé.

We do have a new clue word today, and that word is “skiing”.  Our good friend, ralis95, will have to update his world famous database once again.  Perhaps we had it on a Sunday Jumble?  I’m not sure.  Three of the jumbles are new, with “rahdo” having definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout was a terrific ten letter jumble.  Beautifully cryptic.

Great office cubicle cartoon.  Reminds me of some of my days in institutional banking, and as a validation consultant.  Some of it I miss.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Hey UR…How’s it going? We have two repeat anagrams today, the second being CLIPES, from way back on September 25th, 2009. And oddly enough Skiing does look to be new…Strange though, right? It’s such a common word. And as to the solve…it caused quite a ruckus. I don’t get it though…I saw it right away…but for way too many people, it just didn’t ADD UP today. 😉 Hope all is well, UR…and stay safe out there…1️⃣🙋🏻‍♀️

    Hey Ange,

    I definitely remember seeing SPLICE before, but I’m surprised I didn’t have CLIPES in my Tags. Maybe I was in a rush that day . . . 11 years ago. I am seeing a few more queries for today’s answer. Love the calculator humor! Back at you, lady! — YUR

    Tks…And I wouldn’t mind going back 11 years…Life was TOTALly a lot easier to bear…Have a good night, UR. And wear your mask…😷🙋🏻‍♀️

    UR,

    If you didn’t know: “SKIING” is the only consecutive “ii”
    “regular” six letter word in Websters’ Unabridged Dictionary??¿^ Actually, I find that rather remarkable!☆

    As far as “NONPLUSSED”, for me, a “garbage” word…>”Forgit ’bout it”……. £

    Ugh, I threw in the towel on this one. I was stuck on UN-something! LL

    You were not alone, hon! It looks like I (the blog) received a higher number of queries than usual that day! I don’t think that “NONPLUSSED” is THE most common of words. The funny thing is that I got it right away, but struggled to get Saturday’s final answer! When it did come to me, I felt like such a dope!
