Jumble Spoiler – 09/28/16

Image result for litter

Visual Description:  Stinky artistic license!

LORTL  =  TROLL,  LITUQ  =  QUILT,  FILRAY  =  FAIRLY,  GEELLA  =  ALLEGE   —   Giving us:  TLLTIRYALE

Clue/Question:  When he said the U.S. produces 200 million tons of trash annually, he meant it – – – 

Image result for litter

Answer:  LITTERALLY

(Cute, stretch of a pun.  None of the clue words were new, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  They’ve used “lortl” before.  I thought that “filray” was a great jumble.  It took me a couple of seconds to see “fairly”.  The answer letter layout was an excellent jumble!  Nothing obvious about it, at all.  If you really want to be “litter-al”, trash – properly disposed of – is NOT litter.  And, if you want to really get literal, not all litter is trash.  I wonder which came first though, the noun or the verb?  Hmm.  I’d kinda bet on the verb.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Image result for Godzilla

Answer:  STEP ON IT

(Not bad.  No new clue words today.  But, three of the jumbles are new.  They’ve used “norgp” before.  Super answer letter layout.  Really great jumble.  The cartoon was super distracting for me!  I always try to do these Jumbles very systematically, but I was so tempted to look at the cartoon and clue/question, because of Jeff’s great Godzilla!  Lots of fun today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Image result for Arnold Palmer

Visual Description:  Boxed in by the Big 10.

TAIPO  =  PATIO,  TOHUY  =  YOUTH,  SOPSIG  =  GOSSIP,  SARTYP  =  PASTRY   —   Giving us:  TIUHGPT

Clue/Question: After getting stuck in a middle seat at 30,000 feet,  she was – – –

Image result for Arnold Palmer

Answer:  UPTIGHT

(Maybe she can switch to the aisle seat.  Boy, those economy seats are really crammed together, aren’t they?  There were no new clue words, however all of the jumbles did come up as new.  Decent answer letter layout, for a seven letter answer.  Cute cartoon.  You can see the displeasure on the face of the captive audience.  Maybe she can pull a Moe Howard, and bonk their heads together!

Boy.  We were just wishing Arnie a Happy Birthday a couple of weeks ago, and now he has left us!  Such a shame.  Another one of my heroes bites the dust.  Arnold Palmer made golf what it is today.  His combination of skill and charisma transformed golf from a snooty, elitist game, to an every man’s populist sport.  He was Muhammad Ali before there even was a Muhammad Ali . . . but for golf.  People loved him, and he loved people.  I was one of the many lucky people to get his autograph.  A beloved American icon.  He will be greatly missed.  Rest in peace, Arnie!

Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  Amorous intentions.

USEARS  =  ASSURE,  BETDUG  =  BUDGET,  GRUFIE  =  FIGURE,  VEVIER  =  REVIVE,  LERONL  =  ENROLL,  ODLONE  =  NOODLE   —   Giving us:  SSGTFGREIENLNO

Clue/Question:  The bodybuilder knew he was in love after experiencing – – –

Pre-Answer:  Two Words   (6-letters)  (8-letters)

Image result for Weight lifting

Answer:  STRONG FEELINGS

(For about half a minute, I was looking for a more complicated answer.  Something with endorphins, or something.  But, then I quickly saw the pun!  No new clue words, but five of the six jumbles were new.  They’ve used “leronl” sometime in the past.  The answer letter layout was a fairly challenging jumble.  I don’t think it gave anything away.  The cartoon is great, and it reminds me that I need to get to the gym!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 09/24/16

Image result for 1890s

Visual Description:  Classic re-run . . . on a bun.

ARRLU  =  RURAL,  YONAN  =  ANNOY,  LERYME  =  MERELY,  MMOOCN  =  COMMON   —   Giving us:  RLANLOO

Clue/Question:  After putting sesame seeds on hamburger buns, his business was – – – 

Image result for sesame seed bun

Answer:  ON A ROLL

(Probably not this specific scenario, but this pun has been around for a while!  No new clue words, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  We have seen “yonan” – the Philly Barbarian? – before.  The answer letter layout was swell, for being seven letters long.  Nice old timey cartoon.  Looks like the 1890s/turn of the century.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 09/23/16

Visual Description:  North Tarrytown throwdown!

GIRTE  =  TIGER,  RODBO  =  BROOD,  TANGEM  =  MAGNET,  NAGHEC  =  CHANGE   —   Giving us:  TIEOODMANCHAG

Clue/Question:  The battle between Sleepy Hollow’s horsemen was – – –

Image result for jack-o-lanterns

Answer:  COMING TO A HEAD

(Fairly challenging Jumble answer!  All the clue words were pretty simple, old reliables.  But, at least all the jumbles were new.  I thought the answer letter layout was a marvelous jumble.  I didn’t find anything about it to be obvious, what-so-ever!  The cartoon was great.  Although, I was stuck with the reduced size version.  Besides the jack-o-lanterns doing a head-to-head, also the horses are doing a head-to-head!  Excellent!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Image result for MattressesVisual Description:  The extended Labor Day mattress sale!

VAWEE  =  WEAVE,  MERFA  =  FRAME,  CREMIT  =  METRIC,  CINTEF  =  INFECT   —   Giving us:  EAVFRAMIIFT

Clue/Question:  When asked if they had mattresses that weren’t so soft, the salesman said – – –

Image result for Autumn

Answer:  AFFIRMATIVE

(No new clue words today, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve seen “merfa” before.  It always takes me a couple seconds to see “metric”.  I blame Reagan!  The answer letter layout was nicely cryptic.  Nothing given away.  The cartoon conveys the story very well.  Happy Autumn, everybody!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
