Cryptoquote Spoiler – 03/16/22

Patrick Stewart's role as Jean-Luc in Star Trek: Picard

I am not the archetypal leading man.  This is mainly for one reason:  as you may have noticed, I have no hair.”   —   Patrick Stewart

(It’s always good to have a sense of humor about oneself.  I was a little surprised that this appears to be the first Patrick Stewart quote here at the Cryptoquote, at least since I’ve been posting spoilers.  So today, we welcome the illustrious Sir Patrick Stewart to the Cryptoquote Club!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Happy birthday to Nancy Wilson, of Heart!

Jumble Spoiler – 03/16/22

Hikers could melt their shoes in the Grand Canyon! Warns National Weather  Service | Times of India Travel

Visual Description:  Experienced hikers.

ZOKOA  =  KAZOO,  RNKID  =  DRINK,  GWILGE  =  WIGGLE,  REEFRP  =  PREFER   —   Giving us:  KOODRNWIGLPREE

Clue/Question:  They knew to stay away from the rim of the canyon because they had – – –

Answer:  PRIOR KNOWLEDGE

(I got the answer alright, but not the joke!  Wait a minute.  The ledge in “knowledge”?  Is that it?  Why didn’t they just throw in a hyphen between the W and L?  That would’ve made for bigger yuks, in my book.  They had me Googling alternative definitions for PRIOR, fer chrissakes!

As expected, no new clue words today.  However, every one of the jumbles did come up as new, for me.  No real head scratchers though.  But the answer letter layout was a ferocious fourteen letter jumble!  Nicely cryptic.  But KNOWLEDGE did kinda jump out at me.

Another great Grand Canyon cartoon.  If I ever get to the Grand Canyon I’ll probably relegate myself to one of the safer, touristy observation areas.  It depends who I’m with, I suppose.  I liked the microscopic hikers working their way down the Canyon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
