You can find this little fun word game, to combat early dementia and senility in us baby boomers, in several daily publications.
The way it works is a letter stands for another letter. For example: AXYDLBAAXR is LONGFELLOW (does not apply to today's cryptogram).
Beware, the game is very addictive. If this is your first time, don't be intimidated.
PLEASE DO NOT post the answer in general comments, but DO post your time and any tips you might give the group on how you solve these puzzles as puzzle solvers love to hear how you made out.
You can certainly send your solution to my private reply, or if you need a hint for todays Cryptogram.
If you need a little help you can copy the cryptogram and paste it to Hals Helper below:
You can then work on the puzzle without using pen and paper.
THE IN THING NOW IS TO SCROLL DOWN TO MAGNUM44S HELPFUL HINT BEFORE YOU SOLVE THE PUZZLE.
Solution to our last puzzle:
FREEDOM FROM EFFORT IN THE PRESENT MERELY MEANS THAT THERE HAS BEEN EFFORT STORED UP IN THE PAST. THEODORE ROOSEVELT
5 minutes. I was all over the place trying to solve this. I have no clue than to get the meaning of the single letter.
Really? I’m surprised, take a stab at the first word and it’s just typing. On a scale of 1-10, about 2.
Notice that the number of the eleventh and the last words does not agree with their referend, the fifth word. Probably to avoid implying the gender of the fifth word, a common rhetorical device.
I deserve a break today on that rhetorical stuff. 2 min.
You want fries with that?
Pretty much as fast as I could type it...now I’m hungry for a hamburger
Can I Has Cheezeburger?
The trigraph opening both lines gave it up instantly.
Yeah, I just was not familiar with that name :-)
I just saw the film - although it’s risky to conflate fictional portrayals with real life I’m not sure the author wasn’t above creating some of these motivational slogans out of whole cloth merely to line his own pockets.
