Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/27/20

Adrienne Rich, poet, essayist, feminist, provocateur - Baltimore Sun

When a woman tells the truth she is creating the possibility for more truth around her.”   —   Adrienne Rich

(I understand that she was a feminist – and a poet – but shouldn’t this really apply to women and men?  Was this her way of balancing the scales, considering so many quotes come from men, and start out “When a man . . .”?  Regardless, we welcome Ms. Adrienne Rich to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 10/27/20

TECHNIQUES – ARM WRESTLING FEDERATION OF TELANGANA

Visual Description:  A rasslin’ affair.

RETWH  =  THREW,  ALGEE  =  EAGLE,  LAHNIE  =  INHALE,  VINDIE  =  DIVINE   —   Giving us:  THEEAENLDVN

Clue/Question:  To see who was the best arm wrestler, they – – –

Why you're not big - All About powerlifting

Answer:  HELD AN EVENT

(Could they hold such an event, in our current state of the COVID pandemic?  I suppose they could pull it off, assuming they wear both surgical type masks, and some kind of latex gloves.  But, the masks would hide most of the entertaining grimaces.  That’s a big part of the fun!

There were no new clue words today.  They were all old standards.  Two of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen both “algee” and “vindie” in the past.  The answer letter layout was a fairly challenging eleven letter jumble.  After a couple of looks I spied the word HELD.  Then the rest fell into place.

Fun arm wrestling cartoon.  I’ve seen women arm wrestlers before, but not inter-gender matches.  Except there was that commercial where this mom is taking on all these burly guys, and beating their butts.  I can’t remember what it was selling though.  Anyone out there remember???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
