Jumble Spoiler – 10/13/20

 

May Cause Severe Tire Damage | Chris | Flickr

Visual Description:  Wrong way Corrigan!

DXUEE  =  EXUDE,  SOLSF  =  FLOSS,  TOOLNI  =  LOTION,  DNACEN  =  CANNED   —   Giving us:  EDEFOSLTOCANN

Clue/Question:  When he ran over the tire spikes, his front tire lost air in – – –

Tires inadvertently being damaged by security "shredders" at Aviano - News  - Stripes

Answer:  ONE SECOND FLAT  (right way)

(An excellent stinky pun!  Even though it’s deflating, it wasn’t depressing, at all.  Do you think Mr. Hasty got the point?  I bet it let a lot of the air out of his ego.  Really punctured his balloon.

No new clue words today.  Two of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “dxuee” and “solsf” in the past.  No stumpers today, for me.  The answer letter layout was a surprising thirteen letter jumble.  Nicely cryptic.  I thought it did a fine job hiding the final answer.  But, with the great cartoon, and the leading nature of the clue/question, it was a quick solve for me.

The two guys kinda look a little more specific than our usual cartoon characters.  But, I don’t know if Jeff was suggesting anything specific.  Very enjoyable Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    UR,

    With regard to your last paragraph, I might be wrong but I think they’re referencing the character Mike Ehrmantraut (from ‘Better Call Saul’…and before that ‘breaking bad’) as the parking lot attendant. Its a spitting image anyway.

    Always the best,
    Jamie

    I’ll buy that, Jamie! I’ve heard of the show, but I’ve never seen it. He definitely was not a standard male Jumble character. — YUR

    UR,

    Had fun with that “stinky pun”, didn’t ya?¿Ha

    I agree, very enjoyable Jumble…*
    I made the mistake of not looking at “tion” in
    TOOLNI…So “LOTION” came slowly for me…
    The text; “Wow! That was fast” handed-over the cool answer^…….

    Keep having fun…Lattttter…k

    Reliable sources are telling me that Jamie is correct, and that the toll taker is Mike, from “Better Call Saul” . . . at his small stall in the mall . . . right down the hall from the scrawl on the wall. Tha’s all y’all.
