Cryptoquote Spoiler – 03/02/18

Never in the history of fashion has so little material been raised so high to reveal so much that needs to be covered so badly.”   —   Cecil Beaton

(Mr. Beaton is new to the Cryptoquote!  I’m just guessing that he was referring to the mini-skirt.  As a basic, pig-dog male, I generally liked mini-skirts.  Generally being the operative word.  I’m a leg man, but you absolutely have to have the right legs for mini-skirts.  Big chunky legs, and old wrinkly legs, just don’t cut it.  And, they shouldn’t be worn by kids.  I remember them being scandalous when they first came out.  But nowadays, with thong bathing suits, and such, they’re relatively tame, by comparison.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  GO OUT IN STYLE

(The guys have been hitting on all cylinders this week!  Another sublime Jumble!  All of today’s clue words are old favorites, although some we haven’t seen in a while.  Two of the jumbles appear to be new, with “sayet” and “stagek” having definitely been used before.  Admirable answer letter layout.  Nothing given away.  Plenty of style in the cartoon.  Especially the haircuts.  Yer uncle would definitely stick out like a sore thumb in that crowd, with his torn jeans, grass-stained sneakers, and Marines tee-shirt.  Talking in the third person can be fun!  I’ve never cared much for fashion, but I thoroughly enjoyed Ugly Betty.  I wouldn’t mind to see them reprise the show.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  WEARING OFF

(Some of these crazy outfits, besides being bizarre, can also – very often – be dangerous!  In the higher photo above, the poor girl is taking a tumble.  The combination of the crazy high, platform high-heels, and the flowing  wrap skirt/cape thing appear to be a bit much for her.

All of today’s clue words  are old favorites.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, with “kenal” having definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout made for an exquisite jumble!  It gave nothing away.  It looks like Jeff has a real flair for high fashion!  Who knows?  Maybe he’ll even give up his day job!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  POSED A THREAT

(Great groaner of a pun!  A real stinker!  There are no new clue words, and, for a change, only one of the jumbles is new.  Only “leerd” is new.  FYI:  The clue word “accept” is one of those words that spells out alphabetically.  The answer letter layout was an admirable jumble in its own right.  No giveaways.  And, the cartoon was trés chic!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
