Jumble Spoiler – 05/25/21

Biltmore Outdoor Summer Concerts 2020

Visual Description:  Thunderstorm delay.

RUGDO  =  GOURD,  CCIKL  =  CLICK,  GNNINI  =  INNING,  TDOSED  =  ODDEST   —   Giving us:  GRDCICINNOEST

Clue/Question:  The band’s outdoor performance was ready to start, but the weather was – – –

Outdoor Concert and Movie VenuesAnswer:  DISCONCERTING

(A most excellent stinky pun!  A little rain never hurt anyone, but you really do not want to mess around when it comes to lightening.  At an outdoor venue like this it going to be difficult to find adequate shelter.  If they drove to it their best bet is probably to go to their cars.  It should pass fairly quickly.  Hopefully, it’s not part of something bigger, like a tornado!

No new clue words today.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “tdosed” in the past.  That was probably the toughest of the jumbles though.  The answer letter layout was a thrilling thirteen letter jumble.  I first toyed with the word possibly ending in RING, but as I checked off those letters, and rewrote the leftovers, I was able to see the final answer.

Fine cartoon of an outdoor concert.  Not using that word should’ve been a big tip off to me, but I didn’t initially pick up on it.  It looks like Jeff has named the band The Weather Kings.  At least that’s how I’m reading it.  That’s made up as far as I know, and I can’t figure out what other Kings they might be.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    As I use English through a translator, I understand little of your word games. The truth is that the concert could not be given and the truth is that a storm with lightning is very dangerous. I’m going to find out more about the band that I don’t know. Greetings Yur.

    UR,

    As I CILCKed on the tube to catch the first INNING of the ball game with some healthy GOURDs to munch on, the ODDEST grammatical thought popped in my head…
    Some of your Puzzlers may have first thought of having “disconcerning” as the answer before they realized there was a “t” to deal with…
    Actually, “disconcerning” is not a word* – at least not a correct one…Of course “DISCONCERTING” is legit…meaning:
    embarrassing, confusing, frustrating (as in upsetting) and “disturbing the composure of”, depending on the context…….The boys were real smooth with “…CONCERT…” in the answer!!, very “unCONCERTing”, HaHa, Oh Yea

    Let the show roll on~~~…Byyyyy…….k
