Cryptoquote Spoiler – 08/14/21

Elliot Page stars in his first cover as a man in 'Time' magazine - World  Stock Market

This world would be a whole lot better if we just made an effort to be less horrible to one another.”   —   Elliot Page

(But apparently there are BIG BUCKS in being horrible to our fellow man.  And, while those of us – who are not sociopaths – would not trade someone’s pain for profit, there are far too many out there who have no qualms about doing so.  This appears to be the first quote from Elliot – formerly Ellen – Page to be used at the Cryptoquote, so we welcome him to the Cryptoquote Club today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 08/14/21

All day sucker Stock Photos - Page 1 : Masterfile

Visual Description:  All-year sucker.

EHTTE  =  TEETH,  WNHOS  =  SHOWN,  RJNUIE  =  INJURE,  RUTMET  =  MUTTER   —   Giving us:  TEESHWIREMTE

Clue/Question:  She’d been given a large lollipop and was taking – – –

Answer:  HER SWEET TIME

(I know exactly how she feels.  When it’s hard to have your cake and eat it too – okay, so it can’t be done – you want to do all that you can to . . . make it last.  Storage is always an issue.  You can’t really lay it down, because it will stick to most surfaces.  You also need a lint free – cat hair free – environment to keep it in.  If you’re lucky, you might be able to convince Mom to find a safe space in the fridge.  Away from her cottage cheese – ugh – and Dad’s beer – yum!

We have certainly seen all of these clue words before.  No need to bother ralis95.  But we haven’t seen any of these jumbles before!  Maybe, before I started Tag-ging the newer jumbles, but definitely not in a long time.  None of them tripped me up any.  My daughter had a brief issue getting “injure”.  Probably because the clue word starts with a vowel.  The answer letter layout was a twinkling twelve letter jumble.  I thought it was pleasantly cryptic.

Fine cartoon of a little girl’s bedroom.  It looks like she’s still in her jammies and slippers.  Mom and Dad are having a nice little chuckle at the scene.  I liked the kitten cleaning his/herself, and the unicorn poster on the wall.  A fine Saturday morning Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
