Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 03/07/21

Horace Walpole, 'Gothick' Man of Letters | History Today

There are three persons you should never deceive:  your physician, your confessor, and your lawyer.”   —   Walpole

(We had this quote way back in 2010.  And, at that time I attributed it to Robert Walpole.  But now I believe it’s much more likely from his son, Horace.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 03/07/21

 

That Perfume Sales Person

Visual Description:  Suburban chemical warfare.

LNHICC  =  CLINCH,  GEEANG  =  ENGAGE,  SNIPTL  =  SPLINT,  SANIRI  =  RAISIN,  SLUUEF  =  USEFUL,  POSOEP  =  OPPOS  —   Giving us:  CNHNGPTRSISEPOE

Clue/Question:  Even though the perfume boutique was a stand-alone store, it was a – – –

Pre-Answer:  Two Words  (8-letters)  (7-letters)

PERFUME CONSPIRACY UNCOVERED

Answer:  SHOPPING SCENTER

(Maybe the stinkiest of all stinky puns!  But Uncle Rave, perfumes smell good!  Bleahh!  Too many perfumes, and such scents, turn me off instead of attract me.  Patchouli oil smells like bread mold to me!  The perfume Joy smells like bug spay to me.  I can’t stand it when my wife opens those magazine perfume sample things when I’m eating.  There are some lighter scents that I can tolerate.  But just as there’s the stereotype of some guys who seem to bathe in cheap cologne, there are just as many women out there who don’t seem to know when to say when, when it comes to their perfumes and colognes.  I believe some of them are trying to mask an underlying scent problem.  Here’s a few tips:  bathe regularly – with soap, use a little bit of powder, and use a deodorant if you’re prone to perspiring and body odor.  Not all women need deodorant, as strange as that might sound.  But please!  Go easy on those additional scents!  A little bit goes a long way.

We have seen all of today’s clue words before.  Five of the jumbles came up as new, for me.  Hoyt has used “sniptl” sometime before.  I had to skip over and come back to “geeang”.  Good thing I didn’t have to back into it, because I thought the answer letter layout was a challenging fifteen letter jumble.  Not sure I would have gotten the final answer without the second N, and the G.

Amusing cartoon from our buddy Jeff.  I’m going to guess that he’s not the biggest fan of perfumes too.  A lot of female poodles are named Fifi, it’s right next to a dog store, and the name on the kiosk is Le Pew, as in Pepé Le Pew.  In my opinion, those employees who spray their perfumes and colognes on unsuspecting strangers should be charged with assault.  I always give those women a wide berth!  Be well and do good, friends.  And, stay clean!)   —   YUR
