Cryptoquote Solved – 05/27/22

The deadly art of the sniper: The men and women who killed hundreds and  were HATED by enemy troops | Daily Mail Online

A lesson taught with humor is a lesson retained.”   —   Dr. Ruth Westheimer

(Wow!  Dr. Ruth is still kicking it at 93!  And, I didn’t know this, but she was a Haganah sniper during the Nakba!  I wonder how may Palestinians – and/or Brits – did she kill?  I bet she doesn’t like to talk about it.  And, we all know she loves to talk!  She was always an amusing little spark plug, but now I think I like her a little less, because of this.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Solved – 05/27/22

Jumble Spoiler – 10/19/20 | Unclerave's Wordy Weblog

Visual Description:  Excedrin headache #39.

THHIC  =  HITCH,  TNNIH  =  NINTH,  LBTALE  =  BALLET,  BCPLIU  =  PUBLIC   —   Giving us:  IRHNNTBAETPUI

Clue/Question:  Being a ram and smashing horns so often was becoming a – – –

Bighorn Sheep Ramping Up for the Rut - YouTube

Answer:  PAIN IN THE BUTT

(A great stinky pun!  I don’t know how those rams can do all that head/horn butting!  They must really have thick skulls.  And maybe, like woodpeckers, have some kind of protective lining, or fluid, cushioning their brains.  What a way to get a date with a ewe though!  Are the girls even impressed though?  Or, is it that they pretty much don’t have any choice, when the loser is vanquished?

All of the clue words are well acquainted with rali95’s Jumble clue word database.  Two of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen both “thhic” and “tnnih” in previous Jumbles.  It took a few looks for me to see PUBLIC.  The answer letter layout was a thrilling thirteen letter jumble.  I thought it was phenomenally cryptic.  The final answer slots, and the leading nature of the clue/question made for a quick solve though.

Great cartoon of the battling battering rams!  Looks like there are other participants too.  And, someone is watching from atop the rocky crag.  Another challenger, or a prudish ewe, looking to get outta Dodge?  LOL!  Fun Friday Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
