Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 04/18/21

IMAGINE - John Lennon | John lennon quotes, Imagine john lennon, Soundtrack  to my life

To give a man full knowledge of morality, I would send him to no other book than the New Testament.”   —   John Locke

(Because . . . God knows . . . you wouldn’t want to send him the Old Testament!  Nothing but begetting, and smiting, and magical nonsense going on in that old thing.  At the very least, the N.T. concentrates more on love and forgiveness.  All offense, but I’d rather have a nice John Lennon quote, any day.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 04/18/21

Stockholm, Sweden. Scenic View Of Stockholm Skyline At Summer Ev Stock  Photo by Grigory_bruev

Visual Description:  No meatballs in brown gravy here!


Clue/Question:  The shop that sold cakes, pies, cookies, etc. in Stockholm was a – – –

Pre-Answer:  Two Words  (8-letters)  (6-letters)

Kanelbulle | Traditional Sweet Pastry From Sweden


(Okay.  How many of you were like me, and said:  what the heck is a kanelbulle?  Unless you’re related to Rose Nylund, of “The Golden Girls”, you probably didn’t have a clue either.  Thank goodness for the magic of Google!  From there you probably found out that they’re what most of us call cinnamon rolls!  I loves me a good cinnamon roll!  Or two, or three.  Probably why I’m a Type 2 Diabetic!

Shocker of all shockers!  David L. Hoyt has dropped on us a new clue word today, in “untuck”.  As much as I dislike UN words, I had no trouble coming up with this word.  All of the jumbles, with the exception of “sewbot”, came up as new.  I must have been in the groove, as none of them tripped me up today.  The answer letter layout formed a fantastic fourteen letter jumble.  Nothing really jumps out at you.  But with Stockholm in the clue/question, and the quotation marks surrounding the first final answer slots, I knew that it had to be a play on Swedish.  And, the cartoon made it very obvious that they were in a BAKERY.

Very tasty bakery scene cartoon.  I’ll take Jeff’s word that that’s what the Stockholm skyline looks like.  Eh!  No, I won’t!  I was going to give you a picture of Rose, but I’m giving you Stockholm instead.  Like it?  Looks beautiful, to me!  Now run out and buy some kanelbulles!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
