Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/19/21

Obituary of David H. Comins | John F Tierney Funeral Home - Proudly...

People will accept your idea much more readily if you tell them Benjamin Franklin said it first.”   —   David H. Comins

(Very funny quote!  And, I’m sure to a certain extent it’s very true.  Mr. Comins passed away in June of 2016, at the age of 85.  It looks like he lived a productive and active life.  We welcome David H. Comins – posthumously – to the Cryptoquote Club today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 11/19/21

Snug Harbor Stories: A Wallace the Brave Collection! (Volume 2): Henry,  Will: 9781524851774: Amazon.com: Books

Visual Description:  The fishing expedition.

NUMDO  =  MOUND,  FRIDT  =  DRIFT,  GTUTAH  =  TAUGHT,  CULNMO  =  COLUMN   —   Giving us:  MUNDRIAUGHCOMN

Clue/Question:  What Wallace and Spud were doing on the boat.

Brave' new World: 'Wallace the Brave' comic starts Monday in the Tulsa  World | Entertainment | tulsaworld.com

Answer:  CHUMMING AROUND

(Great literal/figurative pun!  When I saw the length of the answer letter layout I was a little intimidated.  But I realized that they weren’t just fish, they were sharks.  And, I noticed the buckets, so the answer kind of jumped out at me.  Sorta like in “Jaws”.

None of the clue words struck me as new, and the ralis95 clue word database verified that for me.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “numdo” in the past.  I didn’t struggle to get any of them.  The answer letter layout was a fantastic fourteen letter jumble!  I thought it was brilliantly cryptic.  Nice job, guys.

Great cartoon by guest Jumbler Will Henry!  My paper does not carry “Wallace the Brave”, but it looks like a good strip.  Comics with kids and animals are usually pretty entertaining.  It looks like it generally takes place around a shore community.  So, go out and buy Will Henry’s books!  This has been a fun week of guest Jumblers.  Is this generally a one week deal, or might we see more guests next week?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
