Jumble Spoiler – 12/07/11

Visual Description:  Bros befo hoes, watchin’ da show!

IMGOZ  =  GIZMO,  AETBA  =  ABATE,  GNIJEL  =  JINGLE,  SCYOKT  =  STOCKY   —   Giving us:  GIAAEINEST

Clue/Question:  Instant replay was such a hit when introduced in 1963 that people wanted to . . .

Answer:  SEE IT AGAIN

(That kid, Hoyt, has really been bringing his A game for quite a while now!  Two new clue words, again, in “gizmo” and “stocky”, but all were very well jumbled.  And, the answer letter layout was superlative.  Jeff’s cartoon and the clue/question set up the answer, perhaps a little too well.  I can’t imagine many people having a lot of trouble getting the answer, despite all the great jumbling.  For a moment, I doubted that “gizmo” was an actual word.  It always sounded more like slang.  As it turns out, Merriam-Webster’s has its first known use as being 1943, which means it probably was not included, as a recognized word, until sometime later.    1963?  I guess I just never stopped to think about it, but instant replay has been around, essentially, my entire life.  Even so, a lot of referees and umpires still can’t seem to get the call right.  Be well, do good, and measure twice to cut once!)   —    YUR

PS.  WordPress keeps ducking my requests for an explanation of the missing features:  Zemanta and font color.  Maybe it’s time to blow this taco joint, and look for greener pastures.  Anybody have any suggestions?   —   YUR
