(Belated Saturday) Cryptoquote Spoiler – 12/19/20

Icknield Indagations: The Singular History of the Double Entendre

The habit of going to the bottom of things usually lands a man on top.”   —   Origin Obscure

(Today, this might be considered a sexist quote!  But, trying to make everything gender non-specific is just so ponderous.  I think it really should be getting to the bottom of things anyway.  Unless, there’s supposed to be a double entendre here.  At least, that’s how my warped mind thinks.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Hey UR…I don’t think it’s sexist at all. I think what the author’s saying is that man…(homo sapiens), striving to know the entire meaning of something is rewarded by the satisfaction of finding the truth. He/ she comes out on top. …But now you want to talk sexist? Your choice of cartoon? Uh…🤷🏻‍♀️ 😂😂
    Have a good one, R..lBe well and stay safe out there. 💃🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

    I fully caught the straight drift, kiddo. But, like I said, the more common phrase would be getting to the bottom of things. As far as the other/double meaning . . . well, maybe some day I’ll splain it to you! — YUR 😉

    LOL! No, that’s ok. I’m on TOP of things! 😉🙋🏻‍♀️

    …going to the “bottom” of things and landing “on top”.

    This is an unusually risqué passage for Cryptoquote.
    I hope they know what they’re doing.

    “Hey UR…I don’t think it’s sexist at all.”
    “But now you want to talk sexist? Your choice of cartoon? Uh…🤷🏻‍♀️ 😂😂”

    Gee, unc. did you just get spanked by Angela ? 😂

    “…getting to the bottom of things.”

    I got your drift, now.
    The phrase is traditionally “getting to the bottom”.

    …”going to the bottom” can be taken any number of ways, some of which are not fit for your blog and mixed company.

    Angela says, “I’m on TOP of things! 😉🙋🏻‍♀️”

    Unc, remind Angela that a lot of men read your blog.
    We don’t want that one quote to get out-of-hand. 😉

    I think it was just an unfortunate phrasing of the quote, lwc. — YUR

    She just didn’t understand at the time that I chose the cartoon to illustrate a point, lwc. — YUR

    There you go, lwc! — YUR
