There ain’t no way to find out why a snorer can’t hear himself snore.”   —   Mark Twain

(And again, we saw this exact quote back in April of this year!  I don’t know what is going on over at Cryptoquote world, but I wish they would only give us really old re-runs, and not these recent ones.  It wasn’t even a difficult one.  We don’t even have anyone in particular to complain to.  It could be the property of Word-Game-World.com, so I’m going to provide their Contact Us url below.  Feel free to use it to log a complaint.  I think my earlier estimation was incorrect, folks.  I am deleting the link.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  BACKSTORY

(An achy stinky pun!  I wonder if tactile sensations could be equated with scents?  What would that be like?  Would various joys smell like fresh ground coffee, fresh baked bread, or lasagna, or cookies?  Would various aches and pains smell like skunk spray, burning rubbers and plastics, and good old number two?  We all know being in pain stinks.  But, what does it smell like?

No new clue words today.  However, all of the jumbles appear to be new.  None of them tripped me up though.  The answer letter layout was a fine nine letter jumble.  It was definitely sufficiently cryptic.  The cartoon’s dialog, and the overall omission of the word back, were the big clues.

Swell doctor/patient cartoon.  I’ve never been to a chiropractor in my entire life.  A negative bias was instilled in me at an early age, and as a result I only deal with orthopedists.  Chiropractors are much more regulated than they were when I was a kid, and their reputation has improved significantly.  I do respect holistic, or alternative forms of medicine, but I was raised on the more conventional.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
