Jumble Answers for 03/20/2017








Good Monday morning my friends and welcome back to another week of Jumble fun!  I was breezing through the clue words this morning until I hit SPRUCE which tripped me up for about a minute.  With all of the clue words solved, I decided that I’d try to solve the cartoon without the aid of the clue letters.  HEAD was obvious and CHEF was the logical choice to complete the pun so I wrote it down and checked my guess with the letters.  After crossing out HEAD, CHEF was right there for the finish.  Another great cartoon by Jeff and I particularly enjoyed the way he had the baker’s look very nervous as the Headless Horseman towered over them with that very sharp knife in his left hand.  Have a great day and I’ll see you tomorrow!

  1. Good morning.Spruce took longer than the other three words and the cartoon combined. Knowing what letters I needed I finally got spruce. All and all it still took less than five minutes. Have a nice day.

  2. Good morning! Spruce almost got me also, I always tend to look at “er”. Was any one else reminded of the old Fabrege Organics shampoo commercial from the 80’s with y’days puzzle? πŸ™‹πŸ»

    • Ha Ha Ha, Angela! I don’t recall seeing that commercial in the 80’s as I was just a tot but you’re correct that it was PERFECT for yesterday’s puzzle. Here’s a link if anyone wants to take a peek:

      Have a great day! 😊


    • Why my friend doesn’t ask her husband how to use his cell phone,I’ll never know. But like her we would like to know how the shampoo commercial fits in with Sunday’s puzzle. That was all about sewing dresses for the bridal party. What are we missing?

      • Hi Paul. The commercial aired when Fabrege Organic shampoo was very popular. The woman said she liked it so much that “I told 2 friends and they told 2 friends….and so on and so on….”. Her face would keep multiplying with each “so on”. until the entire TV screen was filled with little faces. Over the years it’s sort of become a phrase used whenever one refers to something more than once. πŸ™‹πŸ» Have a great day!


  3. Good Morning all! SPRUCE was my challenge, as well. Mike, thanks for the Faberge Link. What a great trip back in time (was it really that long ago? … Big sigh). Happy Monday!

  4. Hi All, I solved the cartoon first and then backed into the words. Thanks for the link to the shampoo commercial. You’r great at giving us this kind of information. Have a great day, Mike.


  5. Hi! Easy Monday solve. Knew cartoon answer as I read it but when I did clue words I almost felt like I was cheating by knowing which letters I needed for words that I would otherwise have labored over because of how well they were jumbled, like SPRUCE & probably FORBID.
    Exhausted from such a wonderful birthday celebrating weekend. Both school-teacher daughters are on spring break this week so even more fun is in store for me.
    Have a marvelous rest of Monday, and see you tomorrow!!

    • Hi Lelia! I’m glad to hear that you had a wonderful weekend. I hope the weather was warm and sunny but not too hot. We went to see Beauty and the Beast at the movie theater and then went out to dinner (fried seafood). Take care and talk tomorrow. 😊
