Answer:  CATCH SOME RAYS

(A more modern idiom, and a little more subtle cartoon today.  There were no new clue words, but all of the jumbles are coming up as new today.  The answer letter layout made for a phenomenal jumble!  There was nothing obvious about it.  Fun cartoon.  The guy not even trying to fish was the big giveaway.  He of the no shirt, asking for the sunscreen!  Very amusing.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

In a world of peace and love, music would be the universal language.”   —   Henry David Thoreau

(It kind of is anyway.  Hopefully, that means there is more peace and love in this world than most of us might think.  Let’s strive to make it so.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  PERIODIC TABLE

(That’s a good, stinky pun.  Like Ammonium sulfide!  No new clue words today, but three new jumbles.  Hoyt has used “tarreh” before.  The answer letter layout was pretty awesome.  Too bad the cartoon gave away the answer, with the PERIODIC TABLE hanging right there on the wall.  I don’t think that *bonus clue* was necessary.  The clue/question and the cartoon’s convo was enough to solve it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  FANSEE

(Seasonal, and cute.  No new clue words, but two of the jumbles appear to be new.  We’ve seen both “vonle” and “mupel” before.  Nicely jumbled answer letter layout.  Great cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

We may find in the long run that tinned food is a deadlier weapon than the machine gun.   —   George Orwell

(Aah.  Such a Brit, that George!  But speaking of food, have any of our brilliant leaders tried offers of food, and other forms of humanitarian assistance, to North Korea, as opposed to all these threats and saber rattling?  Our corporate media spends SO much time either making fun of Kim Jung-un, and/or demonizing him, to the point where our nukes are at the ready, with 45’s finger itching to push the button.  I have long been a follower of global relations, and I can’t remember the last time we made an overt, positive gesture to the overly so-called “rogue nation”.  Start out by sending the dude a case of Snickers bars, for Christ’s sake!  Remember about 30 years ago, or so, people were asking:  “Don’t the Russians love their children too?”  Be well and do good, friends.  And, try not to buy into the hype.)   —   YUR

Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 04/23/17

Image result for Mel Brooks

Tragedy is when I cut my finger.  Comedy is when you fall into an open sewer.”   —   Mel Brooks

(I’m pretty sure we’ve had a Mel Brooks quote in the past.  Such a talented and funny funny man.  Writer, actor, director and producer.  Mel does it all.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
