Jumble Answers for 08/17/2016

AUGGE = GAUGE

LAASI = ALIAS

TRONHW = THROWN

CLASIO = SOCIAL

CARTOON ANSWER:

AUGALSTHNSOI = TOUGH AS NAILS

Good morning and happy Wednesday!  Before attempting to solve the puzzle, I like to check the visitor count to the website to get a sense of puzzle difficulty.  I was excited to see triple the amount of visitors as usual!  I started the game and the only clue word to give me a hiccup was SOCIAL.  The cartoon answer was what gave me all the trouble!  After reading the dialogue between the two men, I started searching for a word that had to do with a father/son relationship.  I thought sons at first, but it had to be five letters.  After a couple minutes of no luck I moved on to the two letter word.  It was a tough one as well as all the usual suspects were there (IN ON NO SO TO AS AT).  I just couldn’t find a word to put me on my way to finishing!  I did a quick scramble of the letters on my notepad and I saw nail.  I reasoned AS and TOUGH out of the remaining letters and had the S left over to make nail plural.  Did you solve it a different way?  Feel free to leave a comment and I’ll see you tomorrow!  πŸ˜€

  1. Took me awhile to figure out the answer; I always try to figure out words without any help. The scrambled words were easy, however, the letters for the answer did give me some problems, finally saw the word nails and “Tough as Nails” was my first thought and proved to be correct. I like doing Jumble as I feel it is good brain food. πŸ™‚
