Cryptoquote Spoiler – 05/13/21

Dogecoin plunges during Elon Musk's 'SNL' gig | Fox Business

Some people don’t like change, but you need to embrace change if the alternative is disaster.”   —   Elon Musk

(I remember a reader, from a few years back, who said that he was not a fan of Elon Musk’s because of how he sometimes acted and spoke.  I think that Elon may have spoken at the university where the reader worked at, and it left him a little cold.  I wonder if – now that Elon has revealed he has Asperger’s Syndrome – that reader has softened his opinion of him?   I just watched the SNL opening monologue that Musk did last Saturday, and I thought it was great.  But, apparently, not everyone did!  A story on MarketWatch criticizes him for using the term Asperger’s, and NOT mentioning that it’s on the the Autism Spectrum.  I think that anybody with half a brain realizes that Asperger’s IS on the autism spectrum, and that that spectrum is pretty wide.  But they didn’t really say what the preferred – politically “correct” – terminology is!  It did go on to say that another man was diagnosed with “the autism-spectrum-disorder condition commonly known as Asperger syndrome”, but that’s not exactly catchy.  That’s like “the artist formerly known as Prince” . . . on steroids!  Then the article goes on to PRAISE Greta Thunberg for calling her Asperger’s diagnosis her superpower!?!?  There’s either a double standard going on here, or I guess poor old Elon just can’t please some people.  Maybe they’re short selling Tesla!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 05/13/21

Visual Description:  Bros being bros!

OSBNI  =  BISON,  LYNVI  =  VINYL,  ASYLIE  =  EASILY,  RRLEAG  =  LARGER   —   Giving us:  BINVYLESILRGER

Clue/Question:  When the competitive identical twins celebrated their birthday, it was – – – 

MOMS CRAZY COOKING: Twins Birthday Party = TWO Cakes

Answer:  SIBLING REVELRY

(They likely started fighting in the womb.  And, it will probably continue til they’re in the tomb.  But they’ll do just about everything together.  Identical twins have a kind of inseparable bond.  I guess it’s because they started from a single egg.  I cannot imagine having a twin, let alone an identical one.  I’m pretty sure my parents were glad they didn’t have twins.  Although, my Dad was a twin.  But he was a fraternal twin.

All of today’s clue words are regulars to the Jumble game.  Surprisingly, all of the jumbles have come up as new.  It took me a few looks to see “larger”.  Don’t ask me why.  Just a good jumble, I guess.  The answer letter layout was a very ambitious fourteen letter jumble.  A little intimidating at first.  But there were enough clues in the cartoon and the clue/question to make for a swift solve.

Great birthday party cartoon!  I was going to guess that the brothers were thirteen, but then I counted the candles on both cakes.  They’re twelve!  I guess today’s final answer was a semi-homophonic pun.  Just different vowels.  A lot of great birthdays today.  I’ll just throw two at you:  Harvey Keitel is 82, and Stephen Colbert is 57!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
