(Belated) Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 01/24/21

Double celebration for Clown Round - Suffolk Artlink

Visual Description:  Clowny Children’s Clinic.

TWIHSC  =  SWITCH,  DIONGI  =  INDIGO,  CREBHA  =  BREACH,  PUOAEQ  =  OPAQUE,  NDYEOK  =  DONKEY,  NLFELA  =  FALLEN   —   Giving us:  STCIIGBRAOPDKEFA

Clue/Question:  The entertaining children’s doctor had a – – –

Pre-Answer:  Three Words  (3-letters)  (2-letters)  (11-letters)

Fun and laughter just what the doctor ordered

Answer:  BAG OF PEDIATRICKS

(Very sneaky Jumble pun!  I think this might have been an easier solve had there been a hyphen between PEDIA and TRICKS.  I got BAG OF right away, but I couldn’t do anything with STCIIRPDKEA.  So, I wrote out the consonants and the vowels, separately, in alpha order.  My daughter and I both thought TRICK had to be part of it, but didn’t see how, for a while.  Finally, looking at the DPSAEI, it finally hit home.  Yes, my daughter got it first!

No new clue words.  Five new jumbles, but we have seen “diongi” before.  They were all great jumbles, but I was able to get them right away.  The answer letter layout was a super sixteen letter jumble.  For me, it disguised the final answer very well.

Amusing cartoon.  It put me in mind of “Patch Adams”, starring Robin Williams.  This summer Robin will be gone seven years!  Hard to believe.  He was such a talent.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cato The Elder Quotes. QuotesGram

We cannot control the evil tongues of others, but a good life enables us to despise them.”   —   Cato

(This kind of struck me funny, so I looked up the quote.  Every entry that came back had the word DISREGARD instead of DESPISE.  That definitely makes more sense to me!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 01/30/21

I Toured the 'Brady Bunch' House and It Did Not Go As Planned | by Joel  Stein | GEN

Visual Description:  A dad *torturing* his kids.

CUTHH  =  HUTCH,  TUCOL  =  CLOUT,  EMNOYK  =  MONKEY,  BMFLUE  =  FUMBL  —   Giving us:  HUHCTMONFBL

Clue/Question:  When it came to TV episodes of the Brady family, there were a – – –

Greg, Peter & Bobby Brady - Sitcoms Online Photo Galleries

Answer:  BUNCH OF THEM

(One of the dopier – yet now iconic – sitcoms of all time!  Maybe because it was one of the first sitcoms that was more kid driven.  Maybe because of the very catchy theme song.  Personally, I was a big fan of Marcia Brady!  That Maureen McCormick was hottie, fo sho!  It’s kind of sad that all of the adult actors from the show have died.  Fortunately, all of the kid actors are still with us.

There were no new clue words today.  Two of the jumbles came up as new, but I can confirm that we’ve seen “cuthh” and “tucol” before.  I don’t think they were tough today.  The answer letter layout was a beautiful eleven letter jumble.  The clue/question and the dad were the big giveaway for me.

Fun cartoon of the old show.  I like how Jeff drew the horse statue, and the vase, from the show!  If you Google:  “interior of the Brady Bunch house” you’ll see that the horse statue is in a lot of shots of the living room.  He also gave the little girl on the couch a doll that looks like Mrs. Beasley, from the show “Family Affair”.  Great job, guys!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
