Jumble Solved – 12/08/22

Matador gored in the butt by raging bull

Visual Description:  Beware the cape!


Clue/Question:  The bullfighter welcomed people to his home at his – – –

Matador gored through neck in very first bullfight


(E-eww!  And blech!  This is a pun only a mother, or father, could love.  It must have been suggested by a child.  It kinda works, but only in a childish way.  But there is a level of originality to it, so I’ll give the guys credit for that.

We have a four for four, for our matador.  All four clue words have been used before, but all four jumbles are new to our door.  It actually took me a couple of looks to see “gather”, but the other words came to me heretofore.  The answer letter layout was a great eight letter jumble.  Very nicely cryptic.  The layout of the final answer slots, with the hyphens, made for a quick solve though.  That and figuring they were going for a play on matador.

Great cartoon of the bullfighter’s entrance way.  He’s in his work clothes . . . I guess he just got home from work.  I liked the doormat, and his bull doorknocker.  And, off in the distance, you can see the shadow of a bull.  Is this some kind of ironic pet?  Or, is this a bull looking for revenge, for the killing of his father?  Kind of a bovine Inigo Montoya?  Hmm.  Bullfighting does not thrill me.  I’m not a fan of any “entertainment” – no matter how steeped in culture it is – where an animal is killed.  If I go, I’ll root for the bull!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I am with you Unc. Root for the under-bovine. Love to see those guys get stabbed right in their pompous asses.

    Griner is back on US soil this morning. Safe and sound. Meanwhile, we have a valiant *innocent* Marine still in Russian custody and an international terrorist let free by Sleepy Joe. Sounds about right.

    Good luck to Bogaerts in sunny Cali. The Sox were very wise not to match that inflated contract. Save your money for Devers please Chaim.

    Mazel Tov,

    I always say *Where there’s smoke there’s fire!*, Smitty. Our government, and mostly compliant media, always deny that one of our guys is/was a spy. It’s all in the game . . . as the song goes.

    But you know that Sleazy Donnie wouldn’t have lifted a finger to help Brittney. Either openly, or behind closed doors, he would have said something to the extent of: *She? is definitely not hot enough for me to bother with.* *Besides, she’s a dyke! So, the heck with her.* I doubt he would have done much to bring back Whelan either. He didn’t like bothering his good buddy, Vlad.

    Sox don’t seem to be willing to spend anymore. Good luck with that, Smitty.
