Visual Description:  Shell-shocked coach on the hot-seat.

NEESS  =  SENSE,  ADEGA  =  ADAGE,  TREELT  =  LETTER,  CLEDOK  =  LOCKED   —   Giving us:  SSAALTO

Clue/Question:  When it came time to explain the team’s defeat, the coach was this.

Answer:  AT A LOSS

(. . . for words.  Not bad, but not all that tough.  No new clue words today, and none of them gave me any trouble.  We’ve seen the jumble CLEDOK before.  I like seeing the word “adage”.  It’s very appropriate for the Jumble.  The answer letter layout was fine.  It’s just that the answer was pretty obvious.  I see that Jeff is giving it to State again!  I bet in the movie 300 Jeff was the only one cheering for the Persians!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

A Chilling Jumble Spoiler – 12/14/11

Visual Description:  Explorer with a classic explorer’s pose, and his smarter assistant.

TBROO  =  ROBOT,  KCNHU  =  CHUNK,  CLEDOK  =  LOCKED,  TAREOT  =  ROTATE   —   Giving us:  ROOHNLKOT

Clue/Question:  When Amundsen finally reached the South Pole, all he could do was . . .

Answer:  LOOK NORTH

(Ahh!  This Jumble really hits home.  100 years ago today, Roald Amundsen became the first man to reach the South Pole.  Upon completing this monumental task Amundsen retired to The Bahamas!  Just kidding.  But, could you blame him?  I don’t know what he did next.  Disney Land/World wasn’t around yet, so no one sent him there.  I’m guessing that today’s joke is that: when you stand over the South Pole anyway you look is going to be considered North.  I never really gave it much thought.  Same would hold true if you stood directly over the North Pole.  Any way you look would be considered South.

Fairly challenging puzzle.  “Robot” and “chunk” were easy, but “chunk” seems to be new.  Both “locked” and “rotate” were difficult, but only “locked” is new.  Everything was well jumbled, and the answer letter layout was nicely cryptic.  I like the historically themed puzzles!  They’re a nice change of pace.  “Vaere godt og gjore godt, venner.”  Be well and do good, friends. – in Norwegian . . . sorta)   —   YUR
