Cryptoquote Spoiler – 06/23/21

Zibechi on Eduardo Galeano | Chiapas Support Committee

We are all mortal until the first kiss and the second glass of wine.”   —   Eduardo Galeano

(I definitely would have liked talking to Eduardo!  Falling in love, and getting tipsy-drunk, usually take us out of our right minds, and make all the dumbest ideas sound so smart.  I once worked with a guy from Uruguay.  Or, maybe it was Paraguay.  It’s been a while, folks.  And, of course I’ve forgotten his name.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 06/23/21

What Are the Sinuses? Pictures of Nasal Cavities

Visual Description:  A nose by any other name would smell as . . .

GTURN  =  GRUNT,  NYUTI  =  UNITY,  YRSPYU  =  SYRUPY,  SULSEN  =  UNLES  —   Giving us:  GUUISPNS

Clue/Question:  There was a nasal passages seminar, so the medical students said – – –

Sinus & Sinusitis | Dr Gan ENT Specialist Singapore

Answer:  SIGN US UP

(I don’t know if it was just my newspaper, but normally – I would think, at least – the first two words of today’s final answer would be one word, with quotation marks around it, and a hyphen between SIGN and US!  Were the boys trying to be a little less obvious today?  Maybe, because it’s only eight letters long?  It just rang as a little strange to me.

All of today’s clue words already reside on the ralis95 clue word database.  We have seen “gturn” sometime before, but the other three jumbles came up as new, for me.  I was able to see them all immediately.  Even “unless” didn’t trip me up.  And, I’ve mentioned a few times that I think UN words are a little cheesy.  The answer letter layout was an enigmatic eight letter jumble.  I mean the setup was pretty obvious, but the jumble wasn’t.

Cute cartoon of the med students signing up for the “Know Your Nose” seminar!  I don’t think I want to know why Jeff chose Dr. Green!  Sinus problems can be a real pain.  I’ve only experienced them a few times, while flying.  I definitely don’t envy those poor folks with chronic sinus issues!  Great Jumble though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
