THE BABY DELIVERED AT 30,000 FEET WAS —
INAROEBR = AIRBORNE
Good Monday morning my friends and welcome back to another week of Jumble fun! The first three clue words came quickly, but BUREAU had me stumped for a bit. Determined to solve it without pen and paper, I decided to make my morning coffee and revisit the puzzle with a fresh set of eyes. After pouring a freshly brewed cup of black coffee into my beloved Jumble mug, I sat down and had that eureka moment where the answer came into view instantly. It always amazes me how that little trick works and I regained my momentum and started the final solve.
The setting for the cartoon is an airplane cabin where a baby appears to have just been delivered. Mr. Hoyt makes an appearance as well with his head taking up just shy of a quarter of the panel. The look on his face is difficult to gauge but seems to be a blend of emotions ranging from shock to surprise. No doubt he probably wishes that he booked that first class ticket instead of economy! The letter layout for the answer was well jumbled and kept the solution very cryptic. Seeing BORN and AIR allowed me to blend the two words together for the final solution. Have a wonderful Monday and I’ll see you tomorrow! 🙂
