Jumble Answers for 02/11/2017

YTEPT = PETTY

SOKKI = KIOSK

UNMEHA = HUMANE

RICCSU = CIRCUS

CARTOON ANSWER:

HE WOULDN’T STOP COMPLAINING ABOUT THE WINE SO HIS WIFE WANTED HIM TO —

PTTKIOUANIRC = PUT A CORK IN IT

Good morning everyone and happy Saturday!  CIRCUS was the only word to give me some trouble this morning, however; I figured it out after a bit of self-jumbling.  With all of the clue words solved, it was on to the cartoon.  When talking about wine and noticing a corkscrew on the table, the answer came to me instantly.  There is writing on the wine bottle but I couldn’t see it clearly enough to venture a guess.  I’ll have to wait until the puzzle is published online so I can blow it up and take a gander.  I guess that’s the downside of getting it a day early in my newspaper!  Have a wonderful day and I’ll see you tomorrow.  πŸ™‚πŸ·

Update 8:41 pm: Here’s the wine bottle enlarged for your viewing pleasure. It would be hard to resist a glass of this robust red Jumble wine from 2017!!! πŸ˜‰

  1. Hey made it to another week end! Solved the puzzle surprisingly fast just looking at the picture. Feels good after 2 fails this week. 60 degrees today in Indiana, the snow birds will probably come back soon. Pebble Beach TV this weekend.

  2. Only word to give me pause was HUMANE. puzzle was easy with the C and K. Like Pudenda, it gave me renewed confidence after a couple of failures this week. I think my cold clogged my brain, 😀

  3. Ditto for me. I worked so long and hard on yesterday’s puzzle that by the time I came to comment, everyone had already commented and left. Today’s easy one was a welcome bonus for all that work. We finally hit 83 degrees in Phoenix yesterday, but it’s supposed to cool off today. Enjoy your day!

    • Good afternoon, Lelia. Yesterday’s puzzle now holds the record for most visitor views. The words were easy but the cartoon delivered the knockout punch. 83 sounds nice right about now. Enjoy the weekend. πŸ˜‰

  4. No problem with puzzle today words were easy and the clue was no problem as well unlike yesterday. In Conn had 16 inches of snow Thursday, another 2 overnight last night and tonight they predict more snow with freezing rain. Got to love New England weather

  5. Well I have no weather to explain my brain freeze this morning — got all the words no problem and then I got PUT A ROCK IN IT and just couldn’t let go of it, even tho I knew it was wrong — I thought I might have one of the wrong spelled wrong and it was SOCK — Hoping for better results next week. Have a good one.

  6. A quick and easy solve this morning. Off to begin the laundry room upgrade. Will repair spalled concrete floor, deteriorating skim coat on walls and ceiling, then reposition plumbing and electrical for reconfigured new appliances and utility sink. This will probably take me several weekends!

  7. No problem with tody’s puzzle. I drew a total blank yesterday. Got all the words and came up with “two” in the answer but just couldn’t get beyond that one word. Finally had to look up the answer last night. Frustrating. The sun is shining in San Francisco today . Good to see it after so many days of rain. Have a good weekend everyone.

    • Hi Betty! I was looking at a drought map of California in a news story online and it looks like the worst is just about over. Enjoy the sunshine and warm weather and good luck on tomorrow’s puzzle. πŸ‘πŸ»

  9. Good evening. Just got in from out all day. This morning I was able to get the words with circus giving me a little trouble. Tried to get the cartoon answer but the half hour I had was not enough. Didn’t like the added pressure. When I got home on the kitchen table was a note from my daughterinlaw that it was the fastest puzzle solution to date. Really knows how to hurt a guy. Hahathey never fail me. I accept my short comings and am amazed at how fast two of my family members solve it. Stay healthy. Sunday is the good one.

    • Good evening Paul! Your daughter in law is one smart cookie. Sometimes I’ll do my write up about the puzzle and talk about how difficult it was and all the other comments were how easy it was. I know it can be frustrating but that’s what makes this game so unique. I’m really looking forward to tomorrow’s puzzle, so until then be well and talk soon. πŸ™‚
