Jumble Answers for 03/28/2017








Good Tuesday morning everyone.  Kudos to Mr. Hoyt for jumbling DAMAGE so well — you almost tripped me up!  HOLLER would be my pick for the more difficult anagram of the group as it’s not a word that’s used too often.  The cartoon was solved quickly after noticing the price of the soda on the cash register display.  I’ve been staring at the woman’s nametag off and on this morning trying to figure out what her name is.  My best guess is FLORENCE but let me know if you have any other ideas.  Have a terrific Tuesday and I’ll see you tomorrow!

  1. Never saw the dollar clue but was a quick solve anyway. Holler means a totally different thing in Kentucky. Also, some people may get tripped up as POP is a regional term as is SODA and SOFT DRINK.

  2. Good morning. Another easy one with “damage” taking extra seconds. Ever since you got me to really look at the cartoon picture,it has been a lot easier to solve. Thank you for that. From your picture her name could be that but I’m not sure. Till tomorrow stay well. Hope the rest of the group are getting better.

    • I like how Jeff always puts tiny clues within his drawings. Sometimes they are blatantly obvious and other times you have to string them together. Enjoy the day my friend! ๐Ÿ™‚


  3. Good morning everyone. Easy breezy. The answer “popped” right out at me! Only blinked at HOLLER also. Mike, I agree it isn’t an everyday word, I think most people say “yelling” instead. I don’t think I’ve ever written the word holler or hollering. But I picked up on Harry’s reference too, Coal Miners Daughter immediately came to mind. Can’t make out the name on the tag either. Good health, good day to all. ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

  4. Pretty easy today. A slight hesitation on damage, but the other three took longer to write than to solve. Having lived coast to coast and points in between, I am familiar with fizzy drinks by all names on both sides of the holler!

  5. Had trouble with HOLLER. I guess I miss many of the clues as I view the newspaper on my iPad. Can’t see the $1.00 or the name tag either even when enlarging. Gave up the print copy to help the planet and also can’t stand the ink print all over my hands,clothes, etc. and saving a few $$$$. Plus I can take it anywhere i go.

    POP is a mid-western term and used it while growing up. Have been corrected many times since living in the south.

  6. Hi! Trip to doctor yesterday wore me out so I took it easy again today. Got cartoon answer first and backed into DAMAGE & HOLLER. Cartoon picture reminds me of taking an eleven to fifteen-year-old daughter to The Pop Shop for two-liter bottles for her Fri. nite slumber party. We also had to stock up on M&M’s and I had to bake my delicious brownies. Fortunately they usually ate healthy.
    I don’t remember ever writing the word HOLLER, but in the south we sang a song that contained the words, “You can’t holler down my rain barrel ’cause you won’t be good to me.”
    Mike, I am glad I looked back at comments for the tightrope walker because the ones I missed from you and Steve were so funny and such “guy” comments. Do you think they told him to “break a leg” before he went up; that was priceless. But Angela & I still feel sorry for the poor guy.
    See you tomorrow.
