Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 01/23/22

Legend of Loch Ness Monster Born - HISTORY

Visual Description:  Unsolved Mysteries!

LACLEO  =  LOCALE,  GRIONI  =  ORIGIN,  KPESON  =  SPOKEN,  MEETXP  =  EXEMPT,  MCOSHO  =  SMOOCH,  STUESL  =  TUSSLE   —   Giving us:  CEORNSENEMTSHUSL

Clue/Question:  The cheese shop in the Scottish Highlands sold – – –

Pre-Answer:  Three Words  (4-letters)  (4-letters)  (8-letters)

Highlander Loch Ness and Culloden Battlefield 8 Seater Tour from Inverness  2022

Answer:  LOCH NESS MUENSTER

(A wonderful pun!  Thankfully, muenster is NOT a stinky cheese, so I guess this is NOT a stinky pun?!  Plenty to like though.  I like the name of the cheese shop:  Legendairy Cheeses!  We’ve got a cheese shop not too far from me called The Second Mouse Cheese Shop.  Their slogan is really cute:  “The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese”!  I haven’t been there yet.  It’s across the river – Hudson – from me, so it’s a little out of my way.  Some day, when I’m over that way.

All familiar old clue words today.  Four of the jumbles came up as new, but we’ve definitely seen both “lacleo” and “meetxp” at one time, or another.  I had a little trouble coming up with “smooch”!  I haven’t smooched anyone in a while.  The answer letter layout was a splendid sixteen letter jumble.  Without the cartoon, and clue/question, this might have been a tough solve.

Great cartoon of tourists over in Scotland.  I’m sure the little town near Loch Ness is very touristy.  And, why not?  It’s one of the worlds favorite myths/legends.  A wonderful Sunday Jumble!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The Strange Tale of the Wizard of Marblehead | Mysterious Universe

Visual Description:  Ish Kabibble meets Merlin.

CNHIP  =  PINCH,  NLADB  =  BLAND,  NCAGEL  =  GLANCE,  SIALHV  =  LAVISH   —   Giving us: PINBNDGLELIS

Clue/Question:  The book the sorcerer used to learn magic and new incantations was – – –

A Beginner's Guide to Magic - Wizard Edition – SpellTheory

Answer:  SPELLBINDING

(Because a book has a binding.  And, this one is full of spells!  I get it.  It’s one of those literal/figurative puns.  I guess we haven’t had one of those in a little while.  They’re a little less stinky.

All of today’s clue words were on the world famous ralis95 clue word database.  But every one of the jumbles appear to be new!  None of them tripped me up though.  The answer letter layout was a very impressive twelve letter jumble.  By itself, there was nothing obvious about it.  But the cartoon and the dialog made for a quick solve.

The best part of today’s Jumble has to be the cartoon!  A great wizard, and a mesmerized apprentice.  An enchanting magic wand, and a massive book of spells.  I thought the raven book holder was a very nice touch.  But the potions and creepy ingredients on the shelves were also pretty cool.  Oh, and also the mortar and pestle on the table.  Great job setting the scene!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Delicatessen - Wikipedia

Visual Description:  Italian, or Kosher?

NTTSU  =  STUNT,  LYTES  =  STYLE,  YACENG  =  AGENCY,  DXEEEC  =  EXCEED   —   Giving us:  STTSLEAGENEEED

Clue/Question:  Some members of the U.S. House of Representatives ate lunch at the – – –

The Best Delicatessens In Austin

Answer:  DELEGATETESSEN

(So???  Is this stinky pun . . . full of bologna, or is it corny-beef on rye?  I think I smell sauerkraut though.  Or, perhaps that’s broccoli rabe, or a sharp provolone that I smell.  Lots of pungent and appetizing aromas at either/both kinds of delicatessens.  I’m fond of ordering prosciuttini, fresh mozzarella, and roasted peppers on an Italian roll.  Mmm, mmm, mmm!  That’s goo-ood eating!

All of today’s clue words are already on the ralis95 clue word database.  However, all of today’s jumbles appear to be new.  None of them stumped me though.  But . . . that answer letter layout!  That’s another story.  Fourteen letters of cryptic wonder!  What a jumble!  Nothing obvious about it, from my perspective.  It took more than a few looks to figure this one out.  A real toughie.  Well done, guys!

Fine cartoon of Congresspeople dining together at the deli.  A diverse looking group, indeed.  Just a wild guess, but I’m betting that they’re all Democrats.  There are a couple of African-American Republican Congresspeople, but neither of them are female.  And, if either dared to fraternize with Democrats their political careers would be over.  Our former President would make sure of that.  This is what we’ve come to people!  A totally dysfunctional government, for a totally polarized electorate.  Get off social media, folks.  It’s killing democracy.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Boeing 747: Why the jumbo jet was designed with a hump | Stuff.co.nz

Visual Description:  Good Morning Starshine!

MMMOY  =  MOMMY,  SIJTO  =  JOIST,  JCOTBE  =  OBJECT,  BSEUUD  =  SUBDUE   —   Giving us:  MMMJOTOBJUBUE

Clue/Question:  The planes were chatting near the gates.  The nonsensical one was a – – –

Ask the Captain: Do planes have reverse?

Answer:  MUMBO JUMBO JET

(At least he looks calm.  You wouldn’t want to make him angry.  There are many times when it’s just more practical to patronize some folk.  And, there really is no reason to question some things.  Oliver knew this when he wrote “Good Morning Starshine”, just as The Chiffons did when they wrote “He’s So Fine”, and Francis Albert did with “Strangers in the Night”.  Okay, initially many people did question “Doo lang, doo lang, doo lang” and “scooby dooby doo”, but we all kinda learned to roll with it.  Can you kids come up with some other songs with silly lyrics???

As per usual, there were no new clue words today.  However, three of the jumbles have come up as new for me.  But we’ve definitely seen “sijto” some time ago.  I’ve finally gotten used to the fairly obscure word “joist”!  The jumble that took me a few looks was “bseuud”.  But I was able to “subdue” the answer without having to back into it.  The answer letter layout was a thrilling thirteen letter jumble.  But when I saw the bulbous dome of the 747 the word JUMBO jumped out at me!  So, that made for a quick solve.  Apparently, the word mumbo is not recognized in the U.K., as WordPress seems to think it’s an error.  They must not use the phrase mumbo-jumbo, as even combined they think it’s an error!  Bollocks, I say!

Cute cartoon of animated aeroplanes.  They all appear to be jets.  Is the 747 a jumbo jet, or a Jumble jet?  Maybe our guys are rich enough to own their own 747.  Kinda like John Travolta.  I’m not sure I’d care to fly on a jet piloted by Vinnie Barbarino!  “There’s the runway, Captain.  What?  The runway.  It’s time to land the plane!  Where?  Right down there!  Oh, yeah.”  Not a real confidence builder.  Fun Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

DARUF  =  FRAUD,  CATTR  =  TRACT,  RARPOL  =  PARLOR,  TURAOH  =  AUTHOR   —   Giving us:  FADTRAPAOTHO

Clue/Question:  Her sombrero blew off onto the beach but was picked up – – –

Travel to Cancun: Documents, Requirements and Restrictions

Answer:  AT THE DROP OF A HAT

(Boy!  A real Johnny-on-the-spot there!  Lucky for her that he’s been stalking her???  Can you blame the guy?  Hey!  I wonder why his hat is staying on?!  A snugger fit maybe?  Who knows!  Some places say the Jumble pun phrase comes from signaling the start of a race, by either dropping a hat, or sweeping it in a downward motion.  I don’t know if that’s accurate, but I’d buy that.

All of today’s clue words are currently on the ralis95 clue word database.  Two of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “daruf” and “cattr” in previous Jumbles.  No trouble today unscrambling any of them.  The answer letter layout was terrific twelve letter jumble.  Wonderfully cryptic.  The final answer slots layout was the big clue for me.

Fun cartoon of people on the beach.  Somewhere in Mexico, no doubt.  Cabo San Lucas?  Puerto Vallarta?  Cancun?  Acapulco?  I don’t know, as I’ve yet to visit Mexico.  It looks warm and sunny though.  Of course I liked the classic sinking sailboat on the horizon, over our hero’s shoulder!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

EOYRF  =  FOYER,  VALGE  =  GAVEL,  STATET  =  ATTEST,  LHUEMI  =  HELIUM   —   Giving us:  FERGAETTTLI

Clue/Question:  They re-surfaced the pool table, and – – –

How Much Does It Cost to Refelt a Pool Table (DIY and Professional Costs)?  - Man Cave Advisor

Answer:  IT FELT GREAT

(A clean slate!  Covered by a brand new, fresh, smooth layer of felt.  All the other tables are green with envy.  Or burgundy, or blue . . . or any number of colors these days.  It’s not like the old days, when just about every pool table was green.  But felt is felt.

All of today’s clue words are already on the ralis95 clue word database.  But it looks like all of the jumbles are new.  The only one I struggled with was “lhuemi”.  I took the easy way out, and backed into “helium”.  There was enough of the answer letter layout, without the LI, for me to solve the final answer.  The final answer slots made that easy for me.  But it’s an excellent eleven letter jumble.

Fun cartoon of some billiards devotees at their favorite pool hall.  And the proud owner of the establishment!  I like the overhead lights too!  Just not sure what that is on the guy’s baseball cap.  It looks kind of like a slug!  Not sure of the relevance of that.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PYUSO  =  SOUPY,  HISSU  =  SUSHI,  SAYEIL  =  EASILY,  CAMPTI  =  IMPACT   —   Giving us:  SPSIESMT

Clue/Question:  The staircase wasn’t going to be finished on schedule because of the – – –

Betty White Challenge' to support Minnesota animal shelters

Answer:  MISSTEPS

(A real Monday morning groaner!  This is one of the ways you know it’s Monday.  But a stinky pun is better than no pun at all.  It looks like someone miscalculated when they took the job.  They underestimated how much wood they would need.  A real faux pas!

No new clue words today.  Three of the jumbles did come up as new, but we’ve seen “hissu” in prior Jumbles.  It was the only jumble to trip me up some.  But I got it.  Hey, I don’t like much fish that is cooked, so it’s no wonder “sushi” doesn’t jump off the page for me.  The answer letter layout was a great eight letter jumble.  Beautifully cryptic.

Great cartoon of the bumbling carpenters.  Clearly, neither one of them are members of Mensa!  I hope at least one of them has a cell phone!  Without those lower steps I’m not sure how stable the staircase is.  I hope they have some way of getting out of there.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

DYOITD  =  ODDITY,  YOPOKS  =  SPOOKY,  RIMOFN  =  INFORM,  TUORPO  =  UPROOT,  LOOERI  =  ORIOLE,  OMEEVR  =  REMOVE   —   Giving us:  OTOKINFUOTOLRO

Clue/Question:  The hikers found the mountaintop scenic view area after being – – –

Pre-Answer:  Five Words  (2-letters)  THE  (7-letters)  (3-letters)  (2-letters)

The Palisades cliffs, a natural monument in New Jersey

Answer:  ON THE LOOKOUT FOR IT

(Loooking goood!  Who used to say that?  Somebody Latino, I’m pretty sure.  It was a long time ago.  Maybe it was Cheech Marin?  Maybe it was from an old SNL skit?  Does it ring any bells with any of you guys?  As you drive up the Palisades Interstate Parkway, from NYC – well, actually from Fort Lee, NJ – there are a couple of scenic overlooks that you can stop at.  The Palisades rise to a height of 540 feet on the west side of the Hudson River, giving people a great view.  The PIP is a very scenic drive.  You wouldn’t believe you’re only a couple of miles from one of the most populous cities in the world.  At least early on.  It runs 38.25 miles, up to the Bear Mountain Bridge.

No surprises on the clue word scene!  They’re all members of the ralis95 clue word database.  However, every one of the jumbles came up as new, for me.  I had to skip over “tuorpo”, and come back to it.  I saw the other five right off the bat though.  We had “oddity” last Sunday!  If David L. Hoyt is on the lookout for a “new” five-letter clue word he should use SPOOK.  It’s NOT on the list.  The answer letter layout was a forceful fourteen letter jumble.  I found nothing obvious about it.  The clue/question, and the great cartoon, set up the final answer very nicely.

Great cartoon of the scenic overlook.  It looks like they’re pretty high up there.  There seems to be a winding river down below.  Lots of fun!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

A History of Disney Bears | Rotoscopers

Answer:  BEAR OF BAD NEWS

(Aww!  He waited too long to go to the store, and now he’s disappointed his wifey!  For him, forgetting the honey means he’ll get no sugar tonight.  Anyway, this might be a good time for him to start hibernating.  A fine silly pun for a Saturday morning.

Once again, all of today’s clue words are already on the ralis95 clue word database, yet all of the jumbles seem to be coming up as new.  I was able to see them all immediately though.  The answer letter layout made for a thrilling thirteen letter jumble.  I thought it was wonderfully cryptic.  The final answer slots, and the quotation marks, made for a quick solve though.

Very cute cartoon of a domestic bear kitchen.  I’ve heard of lipstick on a pig, but never on a bear!  It looks like Papa Bear has put on the extra weight to make it through the winter.  I liked the little bear container of honey in Mama Bear’s paw!  Very entertaining.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The Flintstones Photo: Pebbles Flintstone | Pebbles flintstone, Flintstones,  Classic cartoon characters

Answer:  POINT OF PRIDE

(This Jumble pun is a kind of alliterative barb.  I have to give the boys a tip of the hat for this one.  This Jumble has an air of originality to it.  I can’t remember when we last had a Jumble that featured cavemen too!  I suppose this pun could have worked just as well with Indigenous Americans making arrows, but you have to be very careful in how you depict them these days.  No matter how dignified you try to draw them someone is bound to cause a prickle.  That’s the world we live in these days, folks.

Another day where all of the clue words are on the the ralis95 clue word database, but all of their jumbles have come up as new, for me.  I guess I was in the zone, as none of them gave me any trouble.  The answer letter layout was a tremendous twelve letter jumble.  Sufficiently cryptic.  The humongous clue – of course – was the cartoon caveman touching the tine of the spear.

Very interesting cartoon depiction of the cavemen.  The customer is pretty standard.  But it looks like our craftsman is sporting the Pebbles Flintstone hairdo.  Many primitive cultures tolerated alternative lifestyles.  To them it just didn’t matter how someone chose to live their life.  I guess in some ways folks 40,000 years ago were pretty enlightened.  We’re still trying to get there.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
