Cryptoquote Solved – 06/24/22

The consummate curmudgeon at his summer house

The average dog is a nicer person than the average person.”   —   Andy Rooney

(I don’t think I could possibly get tired of this quote!  It is so true.  Andy Rooney was an “old man” my entire life.  It’s hard to even imagine him as a young man.  But I could almost always relate to him.  Like me, I don’t think he’d care for today’s level of “political correctness”.  What do they say about good intentions?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Solved – 06/24/22

Driver crashes car into barrier, apparently out of spite, police say

Visual Description:  Losing his touch?

KAWEA  =  AWAKE,  CHIRB  =  BIRCH,  PINTAC  =  CATNIP,  NSYAWK  =  SWANKY   —   Giving us:  WEIRHCTIWNK

Clue/Question:  After seeing the damage to the car, there would be a lot to – – –

Wreck-It Ralph Movie Review | Common Sense Media

Answer:  WRECKIN WITH

(Poor Ralph!  Why did that post back-up to his car like that?!!  I actually had a woman ask me that after she rear-ended me . . . at a stop light!  After she hit me, I put my car in Park and went out to check on her and her passengers, to see if anyone was hurt.  I expected some kind of apology, or at least an “oops!”  But, she screamed at me:  “Why you back up?”  I don’t think I’ve ever felt more incredulous in my entire life.  Seeing that there was no damage to either car, I just told her to have a nice day, and got back in my car and left.  I don’t like to ascribe to “popular stereotypes”, but that encounter definitely reinforced one.

The clue words are all long-time members of the ralis95 clue word database.  However, all four jumbles appear to be brand new.  Surprisingly, it took me a few looks to see “catnip”.  The others . . . right away.  The answer letter layout was an elusive eleven letter jumble.  I immediately thought of the word WRECK, but it took a little letter checking off before I saw the entire pun.  Nice job, Hoyt!

Great cartoon of an elderly couple after they backed into the post.  Not sure why anyone would need a tow truck in this situation though.  I guess it was kind of necessary in setting up the pun.  I’m a little surprised that Jeff is reinforcing another “popular stereotype”.  Ageism is not a pretty look, Jeff.  You should know your audience better!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Google Images is being seriously obtuse today!  It doesn’t seem to understand “rear-ending” or “backing into”.  Tons of front-end crashes involving posts though!      YUR
