Jumble Answers for 05/23/2017

NIHKT = THINK

EOMSO = MOOSE

OTNINO = NOTION

TREWET = WETTER

CARTOON ANSWER:

THE TRUMPET PLAYER WITH THE BIG EGO WOULD OFTEN —

THNOOOONWTR = TOOT (HIS) OWN HORN

Good morning and happy Tuesday!  Another day, another Jumble so let’s get straight to work.  The first two words were no problem at all as I saw them instantly.  NOTION was, in my opinion, the most difficult anagram to decipher of the bunch.  So much so that I skipped it, solved WETTER and the cartoon and had to patch it together by backing into it.  The gentleman in the cartoon sure does have a braggadocious look and Jeff nailed it perfectly.  Mr. Knurek also wrote POi on the drum for a reason, but being musically challenged, I couldn’t figure it out.  Poi is a Hawaiian food so that couldn’t be it so my only other guess is that it’s a band he’s familiar with.  Fill us in if you can solve the riddle and get your gold star for the day!  I’ll see you tomorrow.  πŸ˜€ πŸ₯

  1. Do you think the moose had a notion to get wetter?
    I guess saying I was able to solve the clue words and solve the puzzle would also be “blowing my own horn” right?
    Would also like to know the reason for the “poi” reference.
    Great puzzle!

  2. I solved it in the exact same way you did, in that same order. Poi Dog Pandering band maybe.? I googled it and they use orchestral arrangements!

  3. One of the easiest in quite a while. After solving I always enjoy your comments as well those of others. Thx for the challenge. (I time myself for an added challenge. — 4 min max

  4. Good morning, Mike, good morning, Everyone. I had to struggle not to study this mornings cartoon before I “did my words”. The name Poi caught my eye, and it was like a moth to the flame. Words: 1-2 check. Notion? Two blinks, not one. ( I saw Nino and started thinking about my cousin)…4-check. The cartoon answer was a given. I’m going to start calling it a “gift”, the giveaway answers. Brag, big ego, trumpet, hot air…The dialogue is outstanding! But that cartoon. Even after looking It up, and finding the Jumbles nod to Poi Band Pondering, (a Poi Band)! and the Chicago (Cubs game) connection, I couldn’t get an image out of my head. I have to do some research. Our female is wearing the requisite purple dress, paired with what seems like black leather, both vest and boots. But today, her hair is ombrΓ© blonde and black! A little change up! It’s a start!

    • * I mis named Poi Dog as Poi Band. I remember what the cartoon reminded me of . For some reason, Sonny and Cher. (Without the instruments). The woman’s droll unimpressed response to the mans bravado, maybe. IDK. Maybe I just still have Cher in my head since the other night! LOL…πŸ™‹πŸ»

  5. I guess I’ll toot mine! Terribly easy today. Don’t recall seeing a word provided within the answer before, but you long time Jumblers probably have.

  6. You all know that I love my Wilco. But at the end of the day, Poi Dog Pondering has been a huge part of my life. I count myself lucky to have been able to listen to their music in my lifetime. I asked my wife to marry me at one of their concerts about 24 years ago, and we’re all still going strong. If you want to do yourself a favor, look up music from their Pomegranate or Volo Volo albums. Although I love their 7 album also. The Trumpet play, Max Crawford, works for the Cubs and handles their scoreboard. Susan Volez, the violin player, just reaches into your soul with every draw of her bow. There you go. That is why you see POi and WIlco shirts on Jumble Jeff in the cartoons.

  7. Good morning. Easy as apple pie. Would have thought it was a Monday puzzle. Only word that stalled me for an extra minute was notion. At first I thought it was intoon. Then realized it wasn’t spelled right. The cartoon answer was an instant solve. Didn’t even have to assemble the circled letters. Until tomorrow stay well.

  8. Easy time for me today too. Like others of you I paused at notion but already had figured out the cartoon so solved it without much effort. Happy Tuesday everyone.

  9. Like Mike and others, I also backed into notion. When our son practiced the trumpet, our little dog would often stand near him and howl. I don’t know if he was competing, protesting, or harmonizing.

  10. Hi Mike et al! I think I had about a 10 second solve of words & puzzle answer, didn’t even pause on notion, BUT when I double-checked myself before coming here and had too many β€œo’s” I knew it was not β€œblow your own horn” as I had written in but β€œtoot your own horn.”
    Mike, you have mentioned several times lately about enjoying reading books so….Mike, I heard about a guy who downloaded more than a thousand books onto his Kindle, and now he can’t lift it.
    Enjoy your Tuesday! See you tomorrow.

  11. Hi all – Just like everyone else, just a slight pause at (sometimes a not-so-great) NOTION, then instant solve.
    Hey Mike and Angela, check out today’s classic Doonsbury. Her game missed a period, but now it’s wrapping up the third (trimester):

      • I think you missed my answer; I recognized the song – but you said “Does anybody know what time it is”, so I replied “It’s not 25 or 6 to 4”. Right? πŸ™‚

      • Classic case of the difficulty of understanding toneless text. I think you’re still missing my joke, so let”s belabor this one more time and then drop it. Bear with me here. ’25 or 6 to 4′ is a time of day – 3:35 or 3:34 AM. You asked, in song, Does anybody really know what time it is? I recognized that, and answered (with another Chicago song), I know it (the TIME) is not 25 or 6 to 4, not I know it (the SONG) is not 25 or 6 to 4.
        Is that still unclear? 🎡If so I can’t imagine why 🎡 (Could not resist ANOTHER Chicago lyric, from your song!)
        Cheers! πŸ™‚

  13. Leila -Did you happen to see my comments yesterday about your wax cylinder recording, especially the UCSB website where you can listen to it being played?

  14. Steve, I did see what you told me about my wax cylinder but when you said that it is 102 years old, I especially wanted to thank you for that but it was almost 5 p.m. and time for me to start dinner & I never finished my thank-you to you. It isn’t quite as long as a book yet. We just got back from an appointment with Jerry’s cardio who now wants to do yet another test based on the results of one of the two he already did, so I am going to take a long nap, try to listen to my cylinder on that site you told me about, and finish my thank you which might be tomorrow. Thanks.

      find this information, especially if helps explain a tiny bit of your family’s history.

  15. Hey Angela – About looking for Cheers on tape – I think VHS tapes are 50Β’ each at my local thrift store, which is a non-profit run for the benefit of the San Francisco AIDS Foundation, and bears the incredibly appropriate name, “Out of the Closet.”
    See you in my tomorrow or your today. Enjoy the nothing!
