Cryptoquote Spoiler – 07/31/21

Clever Hans — The Horse That Could Count | by Erik Brown | Lessons from  History | Medium

A horse that can count to ten is a remarkable horse, not a remarkable mathematician.”   —   Samuel Johnson

(A horse is a horse . . . of course, of course!  But a remarkable mathematician probably isn’t as entertaining as the horse that can count to ten.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 07/31/21

Is Bottled Water Safe to Drink After Sitting in a Hot Car? | Cooking Light

Visual Description:  Going, going . . . gulp!

TOQAU  =  QUOTA,  LOIYD  =  DOILY,  SILAMD  =  DISMAL,  NHITZE  =  ZENITH   —   Giving us:  QUDLDIAEIT

Clue/Question:  When the bottled water company went out of business, everything was – – –

Should I stop drinking bottled water? | Health & wellbeing | The Guardian

Answer:  LIQUIDATED

(This pun is all wet!  And, it’s leaving my thirsty for more.  Let me make myself crystal clear, I’m not a fan of sparkling water.  I don’t find it refreshing.  Give me still, freshwater any day.  I don’t think I can get this spoiler flowing, so I’m going to put a cork in it.

No new clue words today.  But all of the jumbles appear to be new!  It took me a few seconds to see “zenith”.  The answer letter layout was a tenacious ten letter jumble.  Fairly cryptic.  But the QU made for a quick solve for me.

It’s kind of an unusual supermarket cartoon.  Or, is it the the bottling plant?  I do like the watername, “Molan Springs” though!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
