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

    I started in a rabbit hole! I thought the answer was ???? US IN. And I could make no sense of the remaining letters for the first word. Then I saw the light!

    Also, my screen for responding is like 1/2 a line. I can’t tell what I’m writing! So excuse any errors! Hey!! LL

    Okay, Unc !

    So now I know the lay of the land. The “founding posters” get the special love.

    It’s always good to know where you stand in the pecking order. 🙂

    LOL, lwc! As an old fashioned *male chauvinist*, I’m always going to favor the ladies, lwc. But, what you may lack in seniority, I believe you make up for in comment frequency. Unfortunately, with the *upgraded* WordPress, I no longer see who the leading commenters are. It used to be on my Stats page, but they did away with that stat. C’est la vie! — YUR

    I Recall awhile back there was some kind of hiccup with my WordPress when I found my account kicked-off the site. It took me awhile to get back on.

    I thought I’d done something wrong until you mentioned they’d changed the service to your account and then I realized it wasn’t me, it was WordPress doing something to your service.

    I’m still not clear on the changes, but I feel things were easier before.

    I resent it when I get handy and intimate with my all of my systems, like Microsoft, Word, Google, e@mail and software services, then some egghead decides to change everything without my consent. I’m too old to relearn everything just cause some young pup wants to show-off what he/she can do.

    I wonder if anyone else agrees, or is it just me. the “old fogy”.

    I’m sure that most of us above the age of 60 can relate, lwc! And, they always try to tell/sell us that it is “more intuitive” and easier to use! BS! I’ve finally gotten used to the new create a post page, but it still infuriates me daily! This new one frequently takes me down to a new line, when I didn’t want it to, forcing me to make corrections. And, the “Editor” kind of comes and goes as I’m trying to color, or embolden some of the text. VERY annoying! — YUR

    Unc, thanks for hanging in there with WP. And, thank you.

    Hey lwc! Good to see you. LL

    I missed part of your post earlier lwc. You aren’t an old fogy in my book. Why do they have to change simple things. I think it gamers. They make the update like a game that we have to figure out. Drives me bananas. I cringe every time I see my phone or computer has an update. Why oh why, on my phone, must they continually change things around or undo the way I’ve fixed my phone. I’m ready to go back to having my phone on the kitchen wall….but then, the only people that call me are the scammers robo callers trying to sell me something. GRRRRR. Old fogy, indeed not. It just all too much to take in, and as Unc said, it’s not always for the better. LL

    Hello, Linda Lee, I just saw your posts on Unc’s site.

    If a bunch of knucklehead, Confederate flag-waving scoundrels can rampage through our national capitol, then maybe a bunch of gray-headed ladies and bald-headed, gray-bearded men can drag these young punk programmers out from their cubicles, knock their heads together until they learn that they don’t need to keep changing our programs.

    Our motto would be, “Look, young punks, leave our programs alone.”

    I copied that line from Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick In The Wall”.

    Thanks, anyone reading for allowing me to rant. 😢

    You are always welcome to rant here, lwc! — YUR

    lecture, we could truncate that to…LEAVE OUR PROGRAMS ALONE!! I think it chants better that way. ☺️
