Jumble Spoiler – 12/11/20

Anthony Hopkins' Net Worth Can Buy The West World — Wealthry

Visual Description:  British nonsense.

CITYH  =  ITCHY,  RYEDB  =  DERBY,  BRALER  =  BARREL,  NCTEEI  =  ENTIC  —   Giving us:  ICHEBBRLETE

Clue/Question:  When Queen Elizabeth II knighted Anthony Hopkins in 1993, she knighted a – – –

Dame Judi Dench celebrated turning 81 in the coolest way

Answer:  CELEBBRITHE

(So, I guess that would make Dame Judi Dench a “CELEB-BRIT-SHE”!  An amusing stinky pun, I suppose!  I think if ol’ Betty II read this blog she would most definitely NOT be amused.  The Royals take their pomposity veddy seriously!  Cheeky one, eh?  Blimey!  Pip pip, cheerio, . . . and tally ho!  Get along now.  Bob’s your uncle.

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  Two of the jumbles seem to be new, but we have certainly seen both “cityh” and “ryedb” before.  The answer letter layout made for an elegiac eleven letter jumble.  Don’t mind me.  I just dig the alliteration of it.  It was superbly cryptic though.

Fantastic cartoon of the regal ceremony!  That looks just like the back of Sir Anthony Hopkins head!  And, a very serviceable Q.E. II too.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Sir Anthony Hopkins and Dame Judi Dench are superb actors.  The “British nonsense” refers only to the act of “knighting”.   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 12/11/20

Those are happy who have been brought up in the habit of being content with humble fare.”   —   Dr. William Kitchiner

(I think this quote has great merit . . . at face value.  But, it also is very ironic when you consider that Dr. Kitchiner – a well known optician and food/cookbook writer of the early 19th century – has been credited as the creator of crisps – aka potato chips!  I guess you could call him one of the pioneers of modern obesity.  But, we welcome Dr. Kitchiner to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well – watch those chips – and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
