since i have a little more spare time in my days, i've taken to doing the puzzles in the comics pages of the oregonian.
sudoku? bring it on.
word search? heck yeah.
crossword puzzle? if i feel like it, sure.
the jumble is that puzzle with four scrambled words, a cartoon, and a punch line for the cartoon that is formed from selected letters of the descrambled words. and i can't do it for the life of me.
the scrambled words are always presented as phonetic possibilities. and since i love picking up new languages, my brain just kinda accepts the scrambles as new words. burmia? verip? wish i knew what they meant in their native languages.
