Cryptoquote Solved – 03/02/23

What does a co-producer do on “Louie”? Steven Wright explains his role on  the FX series – The Comic's Comic

Someone asked me, if I were stranded on a desert island, what book would I bring:  ‘How to build a Boat’.”   —   Steven Wright

(Always a very funny guy!  I haven’t seen him on television in a while, but I hear he still does stand up comedy.  I see the Celebrity Cipher is continuing with their tributes to Jeff Beck.  They must be big music lovers over there!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Solved – 03/02/23

Elmer's Disappearing Purple School Glue Sticks, 0.21 oz, Pack of 2 – Baby e  Toys

Visual Description:  Adhering to their friendship.

HURTT  =  TRUTH,  SETRC  =  CREST,  IKEORO  =  ROOKIE,  GTLIPH  =  PLIGHT   —   Giving us:  TRTCESOKEIGHT

Clue/Question:  The containers in the two-pack of Elmer’s Glue were happy they could – – –

Dlisted | Hot Slut Of The Day!

Answer:  STICK TOGETHER

(They’re hoping that their binding friendship can endure!  Would today’s Jumble answer be considered more of a sticky pun?  Fix on that for a moment.  If they’re produced together, and shipped together, I think they can be secure in their staying affixed.  Other than some crafters, aren’t these glue sticks pretty much used by children anyway?  I don’t think these glues are meant to be permanent.  These two make fast friends though.  We had the regular Elmer’s white glue when I was a kid, but the main thing in elementary school was school paste.  I’m not 100% sure it was Elmer’s, but it sounds right.  I remember tasting it, as it smelled pretty good.  Some of you are thinking:  Oh, THAT explains everything!  LOL!

Of course, all of today’s clue words are on the world famous ralis95 clue word database.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, for me.  But Mr. Hoyt has definitely used “hurtt” in at least one previous Jumble.  The answer letter layout was a thirsty thirteen letter jumble.  Not “thirsty” in that nasty way that the kids are using the word these days though.  I thought it was nicely cryptic.  But the cartoon and the clue/question gave me a lot to latch onto.

Cute cartoon of the two-pack pals.  Once upon a time, Elmer’s was the male counterpart – husband – to Elsie the Borden cow!  But I hear they got a divorce in 1994.  Hey, old timers!  Remember LePage’s mucilage glue?  It came in a glass bottle with kind of a red rubber nipple/applicator.  Was this the stuff made from horse hooves, or was that something else?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
