Cryptoquote Spoiler – 01/14/22

Thomas Edison, Charles Goodyear, and Elias Howe Jr. were patent trolls.

Results!  Why, man, I have gotten a lot of results.  I know several thousand things that won’t work.”   —   Thomas Edison

(Trial and error!  That’s how things get created/discovered, folks.  But observation also comes into play.  Observing other peoples failures first is probably a good starting point.  Especially when there is an element of danger, or even death, involved.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  POINT OF PRIDE

(This Jumble pun is a kind of alliterative barb.  I have to give the boys a tip of the hat for this one.  This Jumble has an air of originality to it.  I can’t remember when we last had a Jumble that featured cavemen too!  I suppose this pun could have worked just as well with Indigenous Americans making arrows, but you have to be very careful in how you depict them these days.  No matter how dignified you try to draw them someone is bound to cause a prickle.  That’s the world we live in these days, folks.

Another day where all of the clue words are on the the ralis95 clue word database, but all of their jumbles have come up as new, for me.  I guess I was in the zone, as none of them gave me any trouble.  The answer letter layout was a tremendous twelve letter jumble.  Sufficiently cryptic.  The humongous clue – of course – was the cartoon caveman touching the tine of the spear.

Very interesting cartoon depiction of the cavemen.  The customer is pretty standard.  But it looks like our craftsman is sporting the Pebbles Flintstone hairdo.  Many primitive cultures tolerated alternative lifestyles.  To them it just didn’t matter how someone chose to live their life.  I guess in some ways folks 40,000 years ago were pretty enlightened.  We’re still trying to get there.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
