Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/18/19

Everyone has a purpose in life.  Perhaps yours is watching television.”   —   David Letterman

(Letterman always cracks me up!  I’m not digging his current Santa/Rabbi look, but to each their own!  Even though I had a perfectly good newspaper in which to write out the various letters of this quote, I was able to solve today’s Cryptoquote just by sight!  Believe me, this does not happen often!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Last night, on The Late Show with David Letterman, our buddy Dave tried to float a quirky little conceptual joke that the audience just wasn’t having.  It obviously cracked him up, and he really hoped that the audience would warm up to it by repeating it.  Similar to his Oscar hosting joke on the silliness of Uma Thurman and Oprah Winfrey‘s names.  If you remember, he did it like he was introducing the two to each other.

“Uma . . . Oprah”  then  “Oprah . . . Uma”.  I actually thought it was brilliant, but the nimrods thought that he was trying to be cruel . . . or something.  Small minds!

Anyhow, last night’s lead zeppelin went like this: (paraphrasing)  I ran into a woman, who has worked for the show for years, and I said Hello, JAYNE.  Never realizing that she was actually JANE.  (Both times spelling the names out)  All this time I’d been calling her JAYNE, when her name is actually JANE.  Paul Shaffer didn’t even pick up on it, initially.  But, he tried his best to play along with Dave, when he saw where he was trying to go with it.  Dave tried/hoped that the audience would like it better the second and third time, but all you heard were crickets and some sporadic nervous tittering.

Now, for the coinky-dink aspect of it!  Just yesterday, in my Cryptoquote spoiler commentary, I brought up the subject of Jayne Mansfield.  But when I first wrote it I wrote it JANE Mansfield!  Spell check didn’t flag it.  Why would it?  But when I went to Google some info on her it kept asking me: Do you mean JAYNE Mansfield?  And, all this time I’d been calling her JANE Mansfield!

PS.  Last Saturday, we were watching Pulp fiction on CineMax.  Mia Wallace (Uma Thurman) confuses the Jayne Mansfield lookalike for a second Marilyn Monroe lookalike, until Vicent (John Travolta) sets her straight.
