Scientists trace 2002 Sars virus to colony of cave-dwelling bats in China |  Sars | The Guardian

LIHEW  =  WHILE,  OWSNO  =  SWOON,  CLEALO  =  LOCALE,  LDHUED  =  HUDDLE   —   Giving us:  WHLEWOOLOALHDL

Clue/Question:  When bats turned the small cave’s chamber into a shrine, it was a – – –

Answer:  HALLOWED HOLLOW

(I love the alliterative stinky puns!  Puns and alliteration go together like . . . well, I don’t know, like cheesy amateurish poetry?  How’s that sound?  Like limericks, or rap/hip-hop music.  Didn’t the early Christians kind of hang out in grottoes and catacombs, back when the Roman Empire wasn’t cool with the new religion?  So, there must be some hallowed hollows out there!  Right?

All of today’s clue words are already on the ralis95 clue word database.  Two of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “lihew” and “owsno” in previous Jumbles.  The answer letter layout was a fantastic fourteen letter jumble.  Marvelously cryptic.  From the clue/question word “shrine” I was able to come up with HALLOWED.  And from the WHLOOL the word HOLLOW filled the void!

Fun cartoon of the bats in the cave.  Not sure if those are a couple of stalagmites on the cave’s floor, or piles of guano!  I really like the little altar they erected for where the Bat-Signal shows up!  I’m not sure what those two things in front of the altar are.  Damn you Gannett, for shrinking the Jumble!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
