Cryptoquote Spoiler – 12/23/20

Daily Mail Online

Christmas, that time of year when people descend into the bunker of the family.”   —   Byron Rogers

(Kind of an unusual way of putting it.  But, a bunker is a rather secure place.  And, most people feel most secure when they are with their family.  Byron is a Welshman, and a well respected journalist, essayist, historian and biographer.  This is his first quote to make it to the Cryptoquote, so we welcome him to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  A pescatarian’s dream.

DBEIA  =  ABIDE,  LEOHL  =  HELLO,  SWIGAJ  =  JIGSAW,  RFONEZ  =  FROZEN   —   Giving us:  AIDHOISAFON

Clue/Question:  The chef who specialized in cooking grouper, tuna, cod, etc. was an – – –

fish, knife, fresh, food, restaurant, kitchen, nutrition, eat, cut, raw |  Pikist

Answer:  AFISHIONADO

(Definitely, a stinky pun!  Not three day old fish stinky, but stinky nonetheless.  Tell you what though.  I knew what the answer should be, but I had a bit of a problem sorting out the spelling of part three.  I guess I don’t use the word aficionado all that often.

All four of the clue words are tried and true, but three of the jumbles came up as new, for me.  We have definitely had “dbeia” before.  I got three of the clue words right away, but they had me at “hello” . . . for a few seconds.  The answer letter layout was a heavenly eleven letter jumble.  It hid the final answer very nicely.  The quotation marks and hyphens were big helps.

Great cartoon of a chef’s kitchen.  It looks like we’re looking at a variety of fish here.  I prefer fish that doesn’t look like fish, and also isn’t too fishy.  Swordfish, fillet of sole, tuna steaks, that kind of thing.  I also like fish and chips though.  When I cook fish, my specialty is fish sticks a la Mrs. Paul!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
