Jumble Spoiler – 02/15/22

Are these the footprints of a Sasquatch? | | yakimaherald.com

Visual Description:  Unsolved mysteries?

IZOGM  =  GIZMO,  RTFEA  =  AFTER,  GJEGOR  =  JOGGER,  LETNER  =  RELENT   —   Giving us:  GOAFOET

Clue/Question:  Sasquatch prints had been found in the snow, and the TV News crew got some – – –

A Sasquatch Playing Saxophone? It Made Sense at This Virtual Event.

Answer:  FOOTAGE

(A semi-wild, stinky pun.  Bigfoot is probably THE North American myth.  I guess he’s loosely based on the Himalayan folklore of the Yeti.  Even though the idea of these kind of creatures is very entertaining, there is very little scientific proof of their existence.  They say the earliest reports were likely of some kind of brown bear walking on its hind legs, and the later reports were hoaxes, perpetrated by folks wanting to keep the legend alive.  There are no known apes in the western hemisphere.  There are some monkeys, but no apes.  And, for those who suppose that Bigfoot is some kind of missing link . . . well, it’s more likely that they are missing a few marbles!  Still, the notion of Bigfoot is fun.

I think no one will be surprised to hear that none of the clue words were new.  Three of the jumbles did come up as new, for me.  But we’ve definitely had “gjegor” some time in the past.  The answer letter layout was a sleek seven letter jumble.  Sufficiently cryptic.  Seeing the reporter and cameraman focusing on the “prints” made for an automatic solve.

Great cartoon of the small TV crew out in the snowy woods.  They both look like what we’ve come to expect of cameraman and reporter.  I like that they work for Jumble News!  Much more reputable than FOX!  But the icing on the cake is the Sasquatch . . . watching them, from behind a tree!  You see, they survive because they are just so clever!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 02/15/22

Horace - Roman Poet, Timeline, Facts - Horace Biography

O imitators, a servile race, how often have your attacks roused my bile and often my laughter.”   —   Horace

(Wow!  It took me quite a while to get past the fact that the “D” and the “E” weren’t necessarily the A and the I, or vice versa.  I had to remember that poets love to exclaim “O”.  Which makes me wonder, is there a real difference between “O” and Oh”?  I know I never use “O”, but then again . . . I ain’t no poet!  Initially, I guessed wrong on “E” and made it the I.  But after toying with the “D” as O, I began to see OFTEN, which helped me realize that the “H” was the T, which helped me see ATTACKS.  So, I changed the I’s to A’s.  But even after all of that, it took me some time to decode the other words.  This was the first time in a very, very long time that I wrote down the T’s so early.  I usually write them down second to last, just before writing in the E’s.  At least I was able to save the E’s for last!  Hardest one, for me, in quite some time!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Happy birthday to Stevie Benton of Drowning Pool!  (I’m not a big heavy metal fan, but there are some songs that I do like, and this is one of them.  Hard Rock for a hard Cryptoquote!)
