Cryptoquote Solved – 06/03/22

Best Donut Shops in Chicago: Where to Find the Best Donuts - Thrillist

You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy donuts.  And that’s kind of the same thing.”   —   Unknown

(This sounds, to me, like something Garfield would say, so I’m attributing this quote to Jim Davis!  Garfield is kind of a garbage disposal, and he’ll pretty much eat anything that’s edible, although his favorite food is lasagna.  Very closely followed by donuts!  So, I’m giving this one up to Jim Davis!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Solved – 06/03/22

Giant pandas may leave US zoos as trade war rages

Visual Description:  Brawling for bamboo.

MMEDO  =  MODEM,  NUAAF  =  FAUNA,  AUQINT  =  QUAINT,  POYDOR  =  DROOPY   —   Giving us:  MMAUNAINDOP

Clue/Question:  When the giant Asian bears fought over the last of the bamboo, it was – – –

Bamboo Stick Tug-Of-War Between Two Baby Pandas | iPanda - YouTube

Answer:  PANDAMONIUM

(Definitely NOT the most original Jumble pun!  But I guess it has been some time since we’ve seen “PANDA-MONIUM”.  I just know that someone will tell us when the guys last gave us this pun.  But nearly everyone loves pandas, so it is a cute pun.

All of the clue words are on the ralis95 clue word database.  However, all of today’s jumbles are coming up as new, for me.  The answer letter layout was a decent eleven letter jumble, but with the cartoon, and the quotation marks and hyphen in the final answer slots, this was really a no-brainer.

For me, the cartoon saved the day!  The two pandas wrestling are probably brothers, and it looks like Mom is trying to break them up.  It’s kinda like fighting over the last dinner roll/biscuit!  But the best part is the panda in the background who wants no part of this.  He’s probably the Dad, and he’s thinking that he’s too old for this stuff, and he’s even seeing if he can slip out the door.  Hilarious!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
