Jumble Answers for 12/16/2016







Good morning everyone and TGIF!  It was 4 degrees outside when I woke up this morning — but even that wasn’t enough to keep me from running outside (barefoot) to get my newspaper so I could do the Jumble.  The clue words were excellent today and quite unique.  I sprinted through them all except CLAMOR which made me look at it twice before I got it.  With all of them solved it was on to the cartoon.  Jeff really knocked it out of the park with this one!  I really enjoyed the chef looking at the Jumble in the newspaper and the dialogue between all of them.  I think there’s a name on the chefs jacket, and it appears to start with a J but it’s too small to make out.  Looking at my letters, I decided to start with odd letter which was J as well.  I saw JUMBLE immediately and LIAR was quick to find for a super funny pun that put a big smile on my face.  I forgot to mention that I’ve already finished Saturday’s puzzle and it’s a bit of a head scratcher.  Have an excellent day and I’ll see you tomorrow!  ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. Temperature outside is 18. But it didn’t freeze the brain this morning. However clamor did stump me for awhile. The answer jumped out at me and with the four letters leftover making lair I didn’t feel confident until I checked with your answers. Stay warm.

    • Morning Paul! The pun was genius and it was a great puzzle overall. My pellet stove was on it’s lowest setting last night and the house stayed 74 degrees all night long. For the headache (and backache) of getting pellets in the fall, it makes up for it on nights/days like this. Have a great day my friend!


  2. All words easy except for CLAMOR, solved the puzzle then backed into CLAMOR as I only needed the LA for the puzzle.
    Sorry to hear about the cold air up north. It’s 81 here now at 11:30 in sunny So Fla. I did my time in Ohio and love the warm air now.๐Ÿ‘Žโ˜ƒ๏ธ ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿปโ˜€๏ธ

  3. The Omaha World Herald in today’s paper 12-16-2016 lists the answer as Jumbl-liar (instead of the correct answer: JUMBLE-LIAR). It is obvious that someone made a mistake since the answer had 6 circles to fill in not 5……just saying!

    • Hi Lelia! We’re tough stock up here in NH. Anything over 50 degrees is t-shirt and shorts weather. You’re in the single digits for the Christmas countdown and I hope all is going well for your celebration. Have a great weekend!
