Jumble Spoiler – 01/31/19

Visual Description:  Goldfish on steroids!

NYIKD  =  DINKY,  NORGP  =  PRONG,  INCSEK  =  SICKEN,  LAEVBI  =  VIABLE   —   Giving us:  IKOGENIB

Clue/Question:  The carp that hid behind the rock in the garden pool was – – –

Answer:  BEING KOI

(Three day old, dead fish, stinky pun!  But, that just means that it’s a good Jumble answer!  Right?  There might even be some folks out there who are not familiar with koi ponds.  Our friends at WordPress do not recognize the word “koi”, so that is definitely saying something on the subject.

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, with “norgp” having definitely been used sometime before.  They were all easy solves, for me.  The answer letter layout was a nifty 8-letter jumble.  It has sort of a Japanese sound to it, don’t you think?  You might be interested to know that “ikogen” is the Japanese word for “fondness”.  If you’re a fan of the television show “Friends” you can store this little bit of trivia with the word “unagi”, which Ross thought meant “brain”, but actually means “eel”.  Some of you might even like some unagi with your koi!

The cartoon is an understated underwater masterpiece.  Besides the main koi couple and rocks, you also have some underwater plants, some lily pads, and some other koi being fed by . . . some air-breather.  It also looks like the lady koi has got her fins folded in front of her, further expressing her “I don’t think so” attitude.  Great stuff, guys.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
