Cryptoquote Spoiler – 06/23/17

Being an MP is the sort of job all working-class parents want for their children  –  clean, indoors and no heavy lifting.”   —   Diane Abbott

(Goddamn Limeys!  LOL!  My heritage is about half English, so – I claim that – I can speak this way!  And, If I can’t?  Too friggin’ bad.  This is the first Diane Abbott quote, since I’ve been posting the spoilers.  She’s not Theresa May, or Maggie Thatcher, or Q.E.II, so what would I know of this woman?  Rebecca Kornbluh isn’t British, is she???  I’m sure most of you know why I’m griping.  The third “word” in the quote *could* have been:  MP, QP, UP, XP or ZP.  Seeing as it followed the word “an”, English language “logic” would dictate that it would either be MP, UP – as in the word “up” – or XP.  You can safely rule out QP and ZP.  In “Murica” MP stands for Military Police, which is definitely not a clean, indoor kind of job.  We don’t say MC for Member of Congress, or MS for Member of the Senate, so MP, other than military police, means pretty much nothing to us Yanks!  I think Rebecca is dragging up quotes that throw conventional English language logic out on its ear!  Just to make them more challenging.  Just like that dopey Jewish Proverb from a couple of days ago, where the first and third sentences were needlessly in the form of a question, despite the fact that they both start with “THE”.  The quote stands on its own, even without the questioning inflection, so what’s the point?  LOL!  Maybe, in some ways, we threw down the challenge gauntlet.  And, she’s picked it up, and is running with it.  She’s giving us quotes that play fast and loose with conventional wisdom.  Let’s just live and learn.  These challenges are good for our brain synapses!  LOL.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
