Jumble Spoiler – 07/28/21

Clue/Question:  The ladies who wanted to sing karaoke lined up – – –

7 Fun Facts You May Not Know About Karaoke — Golden Productions

Answer:  SINGGAL FILE

(Oh, yeah!  That’s a stinker, alright.  No bout a doubt it.  But how long before “gal” ends up on the scrap heap of formerly acceptable euphemisms and slang?  You just know that some extremist is going label the word as “sexist”, or somehow “demeaning”.  Of course, as with all of the other “cancelled” words – and such – there are good intentions behind them.  But as the old saying goes:  “The road to hell is paved with good intentions!”  And, that is a path that I – for one – choose not to travel.

All of today’s clue words already reside on the ralis95 clue word database.  However, every sing-gal jumble has come up as new, for me.  I did not see “final” . . . initially.  And, I’m sure that “nelcga” got some thinking that it was going to be a two syllable word.  The answer letter layout was a swell-egant eleven letter jumble.  Not obvious in the least.  As usual, the quotation marks and the hyphen were the big clues.

Great cartoon of Karaoke Night at the club.  I’ve never been brave enough to sing karaoke.  I sing great . . . in the shower, and when I’m driving . . . by myself.  But not so great on demand.  Which is a little strange, because I have sung in some musicals, WAY back in my college days.  Another issue for the shrinks, I guess!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
