CARTOON ANSWER:

WHEN EDMUND HILLARY AND TENZING NORGAY REACHED EVEREST’S PEAK, IT WAS A —

TYOSRPOT = TOP STORY

Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday!  I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend and are well rested and ready for some Jumble fun.  No problem with any of the words today as they all came instantly into view and I trekked over to the cartoon within seconds.  After reading the dialogue and sentence, TOP STORY was my guess for the final solution and I wrote out the clue letters to see if my hunch was correct.  Sure enough, TOP was all together at the end of the letter layout leaving STORY for the finish.  The cartoon outshined the anagrams this morning, with Jeff giving us a quaint English scene of what appears to be a husband and wife having a cup of tea while looking over the morning newspaper.  Doing some research on the timeline of the Everest Expedition, Hillary and Norgay reached the summit on Friday May 29, 1953 and news of their success reached London just in time for Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation on June 2nd.  A well drawn portrait of the Queen hangs in the background of the cartoon adding to the historical accurateness of the event!  Jeff and David are always on top of their game, giving us not only a fun puzzle but a mini history lesson all wrapped into one.  Enjoy your Tuesday and I’ll see you tomorrow!  πŸ˜€

  1. Good morning, Mike. Ay up me ducks! πŸ‘‘ EARL, THIS ONE’S FOR YOU! πŸ‘‘
    Our resident Anglophile! (I always thought it should be ENGLOphile..Just sayin’).
    So, talk about tag lines…”God Save the Queen”, 🎢”Tea for Two”.🎢, “Because it’s There”, 🎢”Climb Every Mountain”🎢 “Made it Ma, Top of the World”, (“Blonde woman, purple top”…GA-roan, Even across the pond)?!, the list is endless! This cartoon is a “Six Degrees” delight! Oh, we’re not playing Six Degrees? Those 🎢”Blurred Lines”🎢 again…? (Lets not get stared on that one…Big Hit, Big Lawsuit, Big Divorce..BIG Mistake..) Sorry, it’s hard to stop..I need to REIGN this in. This is what happens when I ‘look’ at the cartoon first. OK, Words: 1-4, Good scrambles, easy breezy. CONQUERed it, no CHALLENGE! Puzzle answer: You had me at “P”…Paper, Peak, RiPPle, “HighP”. All the hype at the time. Jeff, as we say in Brooklyn, you ‘Done Good’. We know you wanted to do this y’day, to keep us ‘Day-Themers’ happy, but rightfully so, Memorial Day took preference. So Hillary and Norgay had to wait. Just like this news. They reached the summit on 05/29/1953, but the news didn’t reached London until 06/02. Why? Al Gore hadn’t invented the Internet yet! 06/02, the Queens Coronation Day. “Stop the Presses”! The papers had to SCALE back the typeset to fit the STORY. “All This and Everest Too”! This is so exciting, honing our word skills and getting a little history lesson to boot! One could easily LOSE THEIR HEAD! LOL..Here’s a little treat that I found at Allposters. Have a butchers! http://www.allposters.com/-sp/Everest-Conquered-Posters_i384743_.htm
    Ok, I’m totally knackered, why don’t I EVEREST?!! Cheerio, Ta Ta, and Bob’s Your Uncle! Have a great day! πŸ™‹πŸ»πŸ”

    • Angela– I posted before I read yours. As usual you rounded all the bases–an oblique reference to “rounders”, Which the Brits believe gave birth to baseball, a favorite of yours. Hate to give hints to my age but I remember both events in the cartoon and did not have to research them–something to be said for historical perspective. Loved the puzzle and your comments–thanks.

      • Hi Earl, Good morning. Thank you. I thought of you immediately when I saw this! Love the “rounders” reference,no explanation needed! I’ve heard about the British and baseball, NEPALling! Especially after being on the Abner Doubleday band wagon for so many years.Talk about jumping off a cliff! It’s one of the things on my list that I’ve decided were better left not knowing! Sometimes denial can be so refreshing, don’t you think? LOL Historical perspective? Priceless! Age? Irrelevant! Remembering? C’est l’etiquette! (Oh, wrong European country)! LOL..That’s’ the ticket! For me, it’s all in what we remember. I loved the puzzle also, as I do your comments. Pip, Pip, Cheerio! πŸ™‹πŸ»

    • After that writeup, you could consider me an Angela-phile. And in my opinion you did us all proud on the blog yesterday. Your lack of words spoke volumes. ❀️

      In my paper, the woman has white hair. The yellow may fade, but never the purple!
      I remember Everest when it was just a mound (and the Dead Sea was only sick! – rim-shot!)

      Got all the references, even Blurred Lines; pretty recent for me.

      • Hey Lefty, Good afternoon. No, the woman has blonde hair, ad nauseum. Even in a foreign land! Maybe this guy had a bad experience with a dark haired woman, and has vowed never to pay her homage again? IDK. I think you did say your paper uses cheap ink. Not so here in NY, top shelf all the way with us! Thank you for the complement re: y’day. Some days are just too sacred. I’m still reeling over Noodlebugs post. Blurred Lines, good musical effort, but damn near killed the fool. He just pushed that envelope a little too far. An Angela-phile? LOL..I like that, I like that a lot. Thanks for that. Did you check out the link? I think I got the exact paper Jeff had in mind. Boy, thank God for Al Gore, huh? LOL. So listen, what’s with you boys out there? Can’t you play nice? Cleared both benches, and on Memorial Day? And all that hair flying around? Gave me nightmares last night. All so ugly. Except for Zimmerman holding Harper back. To that I said..”Next..” LOL And yes, you know I know the history behind it. Still, that ball landed halfway up the first base line. Come on, Whatever happened to the brush back being just that, a brush back? So out of control. Your thoughts? (And don’t dare make any reference that every day should be Memorial Day regarding this post! Even if you’re thinking it)! LOL..πŸ™‹πŸ»

      • Strickland has a history of jerk behavior like that and he hurts his team every time. Retaliation 3 YEARS after the fact? And as one of the Nats pointed out, the Giants went on to WIN that series, and the World Series! Headlines in my papers – “At least you can’t call them punchless” and “Take me out to the BRAWLgame”.

      • That’s it, 3 years! Yes, I think it was Harper himself who said something to the effect that it’s Strickland who gets to look at that ring every night. NY Daily News headline? “The MANE Event! ..Bryce goes ballistic on Giants hurler, but hair stays perfect”…ROTFL! Wayyyyy too much hair! Looking like a girls softball team! A total embarrassment. And Posey? I’m convinced he knew. Messed up, you got a what 60 yr old umpire running out there, and Posey nothing? The whole thing, just one big fiasco, and I agree, he makes you guys look so bad. I’m saying you guys..before you bite my head off like you did with the Ducks..who do you root for? You got 5 teams out there. A Baseball Bonanza. That I do envy you. βšΎοΈπŸ™‹πŸ»

        WE only have two baseball teams – don’t forget the North/South 500 mile distance again.
        I usually watch the Giants because the team and announcers have been better.
        I noticed “This date in History” a couple of days ago was the 50th anniversary of the owners approving the Giants and Dodgers move to CA. I can imagine it *still* hurts!

      • I don’t blame Posey. He’s vital to any chance the Giants have right now with Bumgarner out, he’s small, and he got a concussion from being beaned on opening day. Discretion/Valor like when the bullpen coaches tackled Jeremy Affelt to keep him from joining a brawl, then he goes out and closes out a World Series win.

      • Not saying I fault him, just that I think he knew..he had to know what pitch was coming. IDK. Maybe he was just pissed. Yes, I know about his med issues, but isn’t he like 6-6/1? He’s no smurf! Just all played out so bad. As we say in Brooklyn, “Not for nothin'”…it just looked so whack. I like Posey, not judging. βšΎοΈπŸ™‹πŸ»

        How about the Super Quiz yesterday? How fitting that your first regular weekday quiz was anagrams; like a super-Jumble. As for today’s, I only got the first two answers (not a big English Lit fan), but I needed a cold shower after the quiz. The pronouns were supposed to be underlined, but that detail didn’t make into the online version. They’re not making a very good first impression!

      • Steve, OMG! I died. It was a gift from the word Gods! Aced it. What was the top score 18? I think I got 20..extra credit for penmanship! LOL. Gotta admit, I was chomping at the bit wanting to post something about it. I would pay good money to have something like that every day. The first two? Huh? Shirley you jest! Didn’t you ever hear of Cliff Notes? LOL. Wasn’t every one of them made into a movie? I missed two, and ended up with a 15. I read it over twice, thinking I was missing something with the pronouns too. So, the imagery got to you, huh) πŸ˜‚

      • Not only that! You know when Mike changed the format and two ads started showing up after his writeup? I think WordPress is scanning the content of the posts for links, because my ads just changed to poster offers from AllPosts, and all but the Everest Newspaper one are for cheesecake models.

      • After I followed your link to the Allposters site to see the London newspaper poster, two identical ads from Allposters showed up just below Mike’s writeup; each one showed 6 posters for sale, the London one and 5 others (like the Farrah Faucett poster, capisce?).
        Actually, now I think it’s Google Chrome that’s doing it – I cleared my browsing data, and the ads reverted to more generic items. Sorry if I slandered WordPress.

  2. Hi, Mike, I’m leaving right now to take Jerry to the dermatologist but wanted to say two things real quick. First, fast solve today with a lovely cartoon picture of the couple sharing a pot of tea. Second, do you remember posting a picture of your yard showing a tree & some grass with a person in the picture and you telling us that the person is you and that you are holding your β€œtrusty cup of tea” or did I just make that up? I think it is adorable when you use the word β€œtrusty” so I’m hoping I didn’t make it up. Thanks.

    • Once again, Leila, I just have to smile at one of your posts (yesterday).
      I’d never seen any of the episodes of The Voice, and therefore I had absolutely no idea that your grandson Josh West had sung “Carry on Wayward Son.” I just picked it because I liked it and it seemed appropriate (and it has one of my all-time favorite lines,
      “And if I claim to be a wise man, it surely means that I don’t know”.)
      Just another of the strange coincidences that seem to happen between us I guess. I will note these, though:

      Given that you told me about playing Queen songs for your daughter and taking her to a concert, I was amused to see that one of the youtube commenters on Josh’s performance said “Give this guy a Queen song”! (I wouldn’t read all the other comments, though. Like all Internet comment sections, they can be mean).

      He sang Kansas’ “Wayward Son” and Boston’s “More Than a Feeling”? Now who in the world could be feeding a 17-year old these ancient songs, eh? πŸ™‚

      Maybe we’re related? Very unlikely, but I do have a “West” on my family tree. My maternal grandmother told me that her father’s name was G. Irving West.

      Have a good day.

  4. In the blink of an eye…They shoulda’ pulled your pitcher sooner. Us too. We had a 3 run read, bases sloppy with Mets…nothing. Now, we’re tied. Bottom 9th. This goes extra innings, I’m switching to the news. At least what’s bad there won’t be so personal. 🀐
