Cryptoquote Solved – 07/19/22

Carl Sanburg National Historic Site

The moon is a friend for the lonesome to talk to.”   —   Carl Sandburg

(And, the sun is for dopes to stare at . . . even during an eclipse!  LOL!  Gotta love Sandburg though.  This country could use a guy like him these days.  Americans have pretty much forgotten how to work.  Very few want to farm, or do the kind of manual labor that it took to build this country.  We’ve all bought into our “special-ness” . . . and it’s killing us.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Solved – 07/19/22

SCHOOLBOY VS Monster Michael Todd | ARM WRESTLING 2021 - YouTube

Visual Description:  Mindless machismo.

WNRAD  =  DRAWN,  NAAPD  =  PANDA,  NITUGO  =  OUTING,  YNHHPE  =  HYPHEN   —   Giving us:  DANNDAOIGHHN

Clue/Question:  For this guy, having huge arms and winning arm wrestling matches – – –

20 YEARS OLD ARM WRESTLING CHAMPION - Otherground - MMA Underground Forums

Answer:  GO HAND IN HAND

(Strap in, folks!  It’s going to be a grunty ride!  I remember there were videos of this average looking guy defeating all these huge, muscle-bound dudes at arm wrestling.  He wasn’t scrawny, or anything, he was just strong all over; legs, core, shoulders, arms and hands, without being overly bulky.  He utilized his entire body, and had great technique.  Smart Davids CAN beat the Goliaths . . . sometimes!

Easily recognizable clue words today.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, to me.  But Mr. Hoyt has definitely used “nitugo” in previous Jumbles.  The answer letter layout was a toproll twelve letter jumble!  It did not give the final answer away.  But I figured that the two four-letter words would be HAND.  The pun/phrase came to me quickly.

Fine cartoon of the barroom scene competition.  One lady seems impressed, and the other one looks concerned.  It looks like this will be over soon, as is this commentary.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
