Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 02/28/21

Edward Teller on the ABM Treaty

No endeavor that is worthwhile is simple in prospect; if it is right, it will be simple in retrospect.”   —   Edward Teller

(Yeah, creating the hydrogen bomb was a piece of cake!  Apparently, Ed could be a bit of a crank.  A lot of geniuses seem to have so little patience with us mere mortals.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 02/28/21

Exclusive Look Inside Frank Gehry's Home | 2019-06-02 | Architectural Record

Visual Description:  Loifestoiles of the Rich and Famous!

OGAREF  =  FORAGE,  TGEENA  =  NEGATE,  HOSSOW  =  SWOOSH,  ARKETA  =  KARATE,  ROPAUR  =  UPROAR,  LNIEGM  =  MINGLE   —   Giving us:  FRGNESOOKAPAMIN

Clue/Question:  Whether you call it an estate, mansion, chateau, etc., depends on your – – –

Pre-Answer:  Three Words  “(5-letters)”  (2-letters)  (8-letters)

Bruce Wayne. Wayne Manor. 60s. Classic | Wayne manor, Amazing architecture, Architecture details

Answer: MANOR OF SPEAKING

(A beautifully narrowed down pun!  The only thing missing might have been villa, or stately home.  Both castle and palace are a few steps up from a manor.  I was not a big fan of the television show “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous”, but it was definitely popular for a while.  Yer Uncle was never into all that snooty nonsense.  Just gimme a beer and a bowl of pretzels, and I’m as happy as a clam.

I think that we’ve seen it before, but the clue word “swoosh” is coming up as new for me.  Perhaps we saw it in an earlier Sunday Jumble???  It looks like I’ll have to send ralis95 a separate email, so he can update his world famous clue word database.  All six of today’s jumbles are coming up as new, for me.  None of them stumped me today though.  The answer letter layout was a fun-tastic fifteen letter jumble.  Nothing given away there.

Amusing real estate cartoon.  I can’t imagine Jeff studying architecture though.  He’s certainly no Frank Gehry.  I do like the old guy’s ascot and double breasted jacket!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
