Cryptoquote Solved – 09/07/22

I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou - Audiobook - Audible.com:  English

A bird does not sing because it has an answer; it sings because it has a song.”   —   Maya Angelou

(Maybe . . . the song is the answer?  If it pleases you there’s no need to ask any more questions.  We saw Maya the other day in the Celebrity Cipher, quoting Margaret Mead.  And, it was neither one’s birthday!  A little strange.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Solved – 09/07/22

First Class vs. Coach: A Game of Square Inches - WSJ

Visual Description:  Non-pampered passengers opining.

CISYP  =  SPICY,  CGEOK  =  GECKO,  YDRIBH  =  HYBRID,  SCAWEH  =  CASHEW   —   Giving us:  SPIGEKHYRICSH

Clue/Question:  They chose to fly coach instead of first class after seeing the – – –

How to start a mid-air fight: Put a first class cabin on the plane |  Mashable

Answer:  SKYHIGH PRICES

(I always wondered why some people with money spend it so frivolously.  A $50.00 Timex is going to tell you the same time as a $6,500.00 Rolex – low end for each brand – and nobody is liable to mug you for the Timex.  Women’s handbags are another item that boggles the mind.  Craftsmanship and trendy name aside, is a designer handbag really worth THAT much more than the more generic pocketbook?  And, half a Mil, or more, for an automobile???  But a first class seat is such a transient luxury.  I’m seeing business class going for about 4 times what coach costs, and first class can be 10-15 times more than coach!  Pretty crazy, folks.

Of course we’ve seen all of today’s clue words before.  Two of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen both “cgeok” and “scaweh” in earlier Jumbles.  The answer letter layout was a thorough thirteen letter jumble.  Marvelously cryptic!  The combination of the cartoon’s dialog, the clue/question, and the hyphen in the final answer slots made for a quick solve.

Fun cartoon of the class division in an airline.  One flight attendant is serving a lounging first class passenger some champagne, and the closer attendant is shushing the passengers in coach!  Maybe he’s saying:  Stop complaining that you can’t feel your legs!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
