Jumble Spoiler – 12/15/20

How to Make New Friends and Keep Them for Life

Visual Description:  The mocha cappuccino tête-à-tête.

OVFRA  =  FAVOR,  BBIER  =  BRIBE,  MLINEB  =  NIMBLE,  SWDAOH  =  SHADOW   —   Giving us:  FARBENEHDO

Clue/Question:  She was going to take a sign language class and decided to read about it – – –

Panera Bread

Answer:  BEFOREHAND

(Another pun that I – personally – cannot typify as stinky.  For me, fresh brewed coffee smells great, and fresh ground coffee smells even better!  But, today’s answer was definitely a groaner.

I check the world famous ralis95 clue word database daily, but I already knew that none of today’s clue words were new.  Two of the jumbles came up as new for me, but we have definitely seen “bbier” and “mlineb” before.  The answer letter layout was a tasty ten letter jumble.  I thought it disguised the final answer nicely.  I guess I never stopped to think that beforehand was a compound word!

Fine coffeehouse cartoon.  Some people are devoted to Starbucks, but I’m more of a Panera Bread kind of guy.  The smell of their baked goods, and soups is very enticing, and their coffee is smoother than Starbucks.  Starbucks roasts their beans too long, for my taste.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Hey UR…Spot on with the anagrams, but even the solve today has been used before, and not that long ago…March 14th. But take a closer look at the cartoon. The man standing in the backGROUND? Look familiar? 😉🙋🏻‍♀️

    LOL! Apropos pun! I’ve been – purposefully – trying to resist identifying every bald man in Jeff’s cartoons as David L. Hoyt! But, Jeff could be using him in his cartoons similar to how Hitchcock used to make cameo appearances in his films.

    Hmm! I don’t remember beforehand being an answer! — YUR

    Oh, it’s definitely him…the coffee gives it away…
    But I think there’d be a FRENZY if David showed up as much as Hitchcock did…He’s THE WRONG MAN for all that..he’s too humble. And anyway, too much repetition could make Jeff a SABOTEUR of his own cartoons. And I doubt David would ever BLACKMAIL Jeff into putting him in…There’d be too much SUSPICION…Kind of like giving a man enough ROPE to hang himself, you know? That would definitely be for the THE BIRDS. But I must admit, I’m always a little SPELLBOUND when I see David in a cartoon…it’s like peeking into a REAR WINDOW of the Jumble. Anyway, before I sound like a PSYCHO, I should go. We’ve a major snowstorm on the way, and I’m already feeling the horrible beginnings of my VERTIGO…I should take THE 39 STEPS necessary to corral it…So, THE LADY VANISHES…But know beyond a SHADOW OF A DOUBT…that Beforehand definitely was used before. If anything, I’m NOTORIOUS for being on top of these puzzles!

    LOL! Tks UR…I don’t know about a gift, but I CONFESS…I do love word play! Have a good one. Be well, stay safe and good luck with the snow! ❄️🙋🏻‍♀️
