VONWE  =  WOVEN,  SFHER  =  FRESH,  DARPEA  =  PARADE,  LOYESL  =  SOLELY   —   Giving us:  WVNFRHAREOE

Clue/Question:  The deer had a baby, and they just loved to – – –

Answer:  FAWN OVER HER

(Awe!  An endearing, stinky pun!  But, all baby dear are adorable, not just the females.  I know Clarice thought that Rudolph was pretty cuu-uute!  That is probably still my favorite Christmas time cartoon.  That, and “A Charlie Brown Christmas”.  But, that is more for the great Vince Guaraldi jazz piano pieces than anything else.  I still have the soundtrack on CD, and play it every Christmas season.

It’s looking like there are two new clue words today, and for all practical purposes there are.  But, the jumbles are indicating that we have seen one of them before.  The word “woven” does not appear on the world famous ralis95 clue word database, but the jumble “vonwe” is showing up in my Tags, indicating that it has been used before.  It likely appeared in a Sunday Jumble before I worked out the “Oh, ralis95” notification in the Sunday spoiler subject line.  The other new clue word is “solely”.  The three other jumbles came up as new.  The answer letter layout made for a nice eleven letter jumble.  Nothing obvious about it.

Cute nature scene cartoon.  Not sure why he gave spots to the adult deer though.  Spots are usually just on the fawns.  At least for white tailed deer.  They lose them as they mature.  No biggie though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  WON“-DOLLAR BILLS

(I hope no one let the dash/hyphen throw them.  It was kind of extraneous.  But, it’s still a good stinky pun.

There were no new clue words today, but they were words we haven’t seen in a while.  All of the jumbles came up as new.  It took me a little while to see “loaded”.  The answer letter layout was a nicely cryptic fourteen letter jumble.  I was kinda seeing WON right off, but I got distracted.  Then, I saw DOLLARS, and forgot about WON.  I wrote out BLOWSLIN, finally saw WON again, then figured out BILLS, and the pun!

It’s nice to see Jeff giving equal time to the ladies!  Maybe he figured I wouldn’t get up on my soapbox, about the evils of gambling, if they were women!  LOL!  I got no beef with friendly games.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  One tough mama!

LYUGL  =  GULLY,  DAAPN  =  PANDA,  MLUFEB  =  FUMBLE,  YAAAPP  =  PAPAYA   —   Giving us:  ULLPNFBEPAA

Clue/Question:  When faced with danger, the mother bird was – – –

Image result for tough alley cat

Answer:  UNFLAPPABLE

(That’s a cute, stinky pun!  Maybe she’ll get her own Netflix show.  The Unflappable Mother Bird!  I wonder if Ellie Kemper can play a bird?  I hear she can do squirrels.  Hmm.  It’s a little out there, folks.  But, I’m not just blathering.

None of today’s clue words can be considered new, in any respect.  Three of the jumbles could claim that, with “daapn” hving definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout was a superior eleven letter jumble.  I wouldn’t be surprised if some of you struggled to get the final answer.  Although, I saw it right away.

Cute nature cartoon.  That old Tom looks pretty tough.  I guess mom could dive bomb the cat, as he attempts to climb the tree.   Without her, the chicks don’t stand a chance.  Another fun perspective cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  “Fake News” pooch!

KARME  =  MAKER,  OBATO  =  TABOO,  TNUGIO  =  OUTING,  AEQURS  =  SQUARE   —   Giving us:  AROTNAE

Clue/Question:  When it came to destroying the morning newspaper, their dog was – – –

Answer:  ON A TEAR

(Or a shred . . . and a slobber!  Hey, everyone’s a critic these days.  Even dogs!  The dog is probably upset that newspapers no longer use proof readers, and they rely on Spellcheck . . . which only does as the name implies.  It does not care about duplicate words, missing words, the wrong homophone, words out of order, etc., etc.  I always feel a little embarrassed, as well as angry, when I read these obvious mistakes.

There were no new clue words today.  Three of the jumbles did come up as new, with “obato” having definitely been used before.  Surprisingly, it took me a couple of looks to see both “maker” and “outing”.  Good jumbles!  The answer letter layout was a well-made seven letter jumble.  But, it was kind of hard hiding a fairly obvious answer.

Cute domestic scene cartoon.  Maybe David of Jeff’s parents, living in Florida, or Arizona.  It looks like the pooch has even gotten hold of one of Dad’s slippers!  Maybe the dog is still in his puppy stage and he’s teething.  He will grow out of it . . . eventually.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  The knead for seed . . . money.

GUGEO  =  GOUGE,  ANDKR  =  DRANK,  CHITEC  =  HECTIC,  SUSHIQ  =  SQUISH   —   Giving us:  OGEDRAHETUISH

Clue/Question:  She wanted to start her own bread company and planned to – – –

Answer:  RAISE THE DOUGH

(Nothing stinky about fresh baked bread!  One of life’s greatest aromas.  When you get to heaven you’re greeted by all your favorite pets.  And, the aromas of fresh baked bread, and freshly ground coffee fill the air.  Now that would be something to look forward to!

Surprisingly, there were no new clue words today.  I can’t remember when they last used “squish”.  All four jumbles came up as new.  The answer letter layout was a super thirteen letter jumble.  It gave nothing away.  I knew DOUGH had to be in the answer, but I initially thought that the middle word was HER.  That left me with EATIS.  I couldn’t do anything with that, but it helped me to see RAISE, so I changed HER to THE, and the pun was complete!

Nice kitchen scene cartoon.  Fun Jumble!  Great start to the week.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 09/15/19

Image result for 1983 Zenith television

Visual Description:  Back to the 1980s!

SARIPN  =  SPRAIN,  DUCLOY  =  CLOUDY,  SKOREH  =  KOSHER,  STMOCA  =  MASCOT,  BLEPEB  =  PEBBLE,  TUWOTI  =  OUTWI  —   Giving us:  SPRLOYKOEMOTPBEOT

Clue/Question:  When the Weather Channel debuted in 1982, it – – –

Pre-Answer:  Four Words  (4-letters)  (6-letters)  (2-letters)  (5-letters)

Image result for 1980s televisions with corded remotes

Answer:  TOOK PEOPLE BY STORM

(That’s a good, old-fashioned, groaner of a pun!  And, I love it!  There really were a lot of people who had this channel on all day long, when it first came out.  My aunt was one of them.  I guess it was kind of a novelty.

All of today’s clue words are old favorites.  However, five of the jumbles appear to be new.  We have definitely seen “tuwoti” sometime in the past.  None of them tripped me up.  The answer letter layout was a stupendous seventeen letter jumble.  It didn’t give anything away.  I was able to see BY STORM immediately.  And, with PLOKOEOTPE I was able to figure out TOOK PEOPLE.

Great cartoon of a 1980s scene.  I remember buying a great Zenith color TV, with a corded remote, around that same time.  Cordless remotes were not all that common until a couple of years later.  Telephones were definitely corded though!  Maybe this is Jeff, when he was in high school?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Image result for raccoons eating eggs

Visual Description:  Pilfering procyons!

GIWHE  =  WEIGH,  NUPDO  =  POUND,  GENOLR  =  LONGER,  CASLIO  =  SOCIAL   —   Giving us:  EGHPDOGESCA

Clue/Question:  After the raccoons raided the henhouse, they enjoyed their – – –

Image result for raccoons

Answer:  POACHED EGGS

(Now this is a classic stinky pun Jumble!  There’s no stretch of the imagination with this one.  Cut and dry, cute and funny.  I’m not a big fan of poached eggs, because I don’t like them runny.  But, I don’t care for them hard boiled either.  I prefer my eggs cooked outside of the shell.

No new clue words today.  All of the jumbles did come up as new though.  The only one to give me trouble was “genolr”.  But, it just took me a little longer.  The answer letter layout was a wonderful eleven letter jumble.  I don’t think it was obvious at all.  The biggest clue was probably the “I love them runny” line.

Really fun cartoon.  Very cute raccoons, and I like all the detail in the background.  The hens and chicks on the ground, the rooster on top of one of the henhouses, and the befuddled looking farmer.  A fine Saturday Jumble!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
