Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/17/20

Dr. Robert Anthony - The Truly Amazing Blog

If you are honest because honesty is the best policy, then your honesty is corrupt.”   —   Dr. Robert Anthony

(The author of a number of self-help books, like “Beyond Positive Thinking” and “Living Your Magic”.  I don’t know if I agree with this statement.  If there was an only in between honest and because, then I’d agree with it.  Regardless, we welcome the good doctor to the Cryptoquote Club today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 11/17/20

BROOM HILDA Collector Drinking Glass Mint Unused 1977 | #31382914

Visual Description:  Incendiary incantation.

SULYO  =  LOUSY,  RLIDL  =  DRILL,  TUABEY  =  BEAUTY,  LDEPEG  =  PLEDGE   —   Giving us:  LOSDRLBEUTPLEE

Clue/Question:  When Broom-Hilda’s magic backfired, it – – –

Frost Productions | Broom Hilda: Property Overview

Answer:  SPELLED TROUBLE

(It seems that Broom-Hilda’s spells rarely go the way she would like them to go.  She’s been around for about 50 years now.  I started reading the strip when I was a young teen.  My newspaper doesn’t carry it, but I always read it in the Democrat & Chronicle whenever I was taking care of my mom, up in Rochester.

There are no new clue words today.  But, there were three new jumbles.  We’ve seen that lousy “sulyo” before though.  All the clue words came quickly.  The answer letter layout was great fourteen letter jumble.  I saw SPELLED right away, and from ORLBEUT I was able to get out of TROUBLE.

Good old Broom-Hilda, and her two favorite buddies, Gaylord – the buzzard, and Irwin – the hairy troll.  She’s kinda like the Oscar Madison of witches.  Generally benign, but don’t piss her off!  I guess at 50 years you’d have to call Broom-Hilda a classic cartoon!  Nice job, Russel Myers!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Belated Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 11/15/20

Baker University - Tennis Falls at Missouri Baptist in Road Match

Visual Description:  Kathy gets smoked!

LRODAL  =  DOLLAR,  LNEENF  =  FENNEL,  PAYRTS  =  PASTRY,  NNIWUD  =  UNWIND,  ISTIMF  =  MISFIT,  SCOOMS  =  COSMOS   —   Giving us:  ORNNEPTRUNIFTOO

Clue/Question:  When she aced her opponent to win the tennis match, it was the – – –

Pre-Answer:  Four Words  (5-letters) (2-letters) (2-letters) (6-letters)

Women's college tennis: Montana's Termi-netter helps lead team over  Wildcats | Grizzlies | missoulian.com

Answer:  POINT OF NO RETURN

(That’s the definition of getting aced alright!  I’m glad to see Kathy taking it so well.  Well, I guess she’s a big girl.  And, big girls don’t cry!  Getting smoked is never fun though.  And, tomorrow is another day.

All of Sunday’s clue words are familiar old friends again.  Nevertheless, five of the jumbles do appear to be new.  The only jumble we’ve definitely seen before is “lneenf”.  I didn’t have any trouble getting the clue words, even “unwind”.  I’m still not crazy about UN clue words though.  The answer letter layout was a fantastic fifteen letter jumble.  Not obvious.  But, I was able to get the final answer right away.

Fine tennis court cartoon!  This looks like it was more than just a friendly match.  I don’t know if Kathy plays competitively, or if this is actually Jeff’s daughter, Sydney.  I usually associate her with swimming, but I guess she could play tennis too.  Fine Sunday Jumble!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I had to save this as a Draft yesterday, and when you open a Draft it brings up the newer format, and I can’t access/add Tags.  That’s where I add new jumbles!  So, there are five new jumbles that haven’t been added to my tags.  Maybe I’ll slip them in with Tuesday’s Jumble.     YUR
