Jumble Will Not Be Discontinued

Apparently, the Idaho Press Tribune has been hammered by readers who deciphered a message on their daily puzzle that Jumble was being discontinued. An IPT staffer writes: "Attention Jumble puzzle fans. April Fool's Day. The puzzle will not be discontinued. The creator of the popular Jumble word puzzle pulled a trick on us — and our readers — today, drawing a tiny message that says: "After today, Jumble will not be featured by newspapers." Trust us, the puzzle will be back tomorrow. We've already got it on the page." City Editor Addy Hatch of the Spokesman-Review and our newsroom have also fielded irate calls from Jumble players.

Question: Are you a Jumble puzzle player?
