TUYPT = PUTTY

SUDEO = DOUSE

GOCCAN = COGNAC

BNILEM = NIMBLE

CARTOON ANSWER:

WHEN THE COUPLE TRIED OUT THEIR NEW FURNITURE WHILE WATCHING TV, THEY WATCHED A —

TSOCIM = SITCOM

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Stellar clue words this morning with the first two coming instantly while the last two gave me some time to think.  COGNAC by far was the most difficult for me to decipher and I had to use my pen and notepad to get the job done.  Eleven self-jumbles later, I arrived at the solution and was truly surprised that it put up such a fight.  With it completed and out of the way, I started on NIMBLE which ended up only taking a few extra glances before coming to me.  Moving along to the cartoon, it’s off to Chicago we go where we meet a delightful couple relaxing on their couch while watching television.  At first I thought the male half was Jumble artist Jeff Knurek, however; the lack of a Wilco shirt leads me to believe it was someone else.  The beautiful Chicago skyline can be seen through the window in the background with the Willis (Sears) Tower visible.  Reading the dialogue, I was excited that there was a mention of Seinfeld as it was and probably always will be my favorite television show.  I knew which episode they were watching instantly by the reference to a “Bro” and it is also one of my favorite episodes.  If you’re wondering what a Bro is, think of it as a male version of a female undergarment that is also three letters!  The cartoon answer came quickly as it was only 6-letters and very obvious.  Did you notice the large “J” on the back of the TV?  A great detail that I almost missed as I was trying to figure out how I was going to delicately explain what a Bro was.  I’ll be off on a trip for the next couple of days so I’ll post the answers as soon as I get a chance.  Have a wonderful Wednesday and I’ll see you soon!  πŸ˜€

  1. 🎢”Because you know, I’m all about that Bass, ’bout that bass…no treble..”🎢
    Seinfeld, “The Show About NOTHING..” With that now iconic theme song. The finger snaps, the clicks, the pops, and all that funky Bass. And if you listened closely, the subtle nuances with different episodes. (Yes, there were). Perfectly PROGRAMmed for the grit and noise of the Upper West Side. And then you go find out, there was no “Bass”, it was a synthesizer! And the sounds were all “mouthed” by the composer! Huh? So now what..? “The Song About NOTHING…”? Was I JERRYmandered? Was it all a smokeSCREEN? Please, PUTty my mind at ease..Say it ain’t so, Joe”..or Jerry! Alas, I DOUSEd my sorrows in a COGNAC COSMOpolitan. (And NIMBLE, I got NOTHING)! (Alas?)…Since I’m already at the cartoon, I’ll SETTEE-L it. The guy looks like Jeff, so I’ll go with the Salesforce Tower in the skyline, with one antenna for TV, and the other for NOTHING! (Do we see a theme here…)? The wedding PICTURE, cute touch. Is that a J on the TV? For Jeff? But the eye candy for me? That tiny window latch. By GEORGE, what minute detail! And as for the solve, SITting on the couch, watching a COMedy! Easily explELAINEd! The words were all RERUNS. Easy as NBC! BROke into a grin at Cognac. (Wasn’t it 9, 10 days ago, that Earl and Steve couldn’t get on that Conga line with Cognac clouding their (tele)VISION)?
    So, great puzzle, great cartoon, great episode. The doorman, Sid Farkus, the mansiere, Estelle, Poppy and the COUCH, Mr. Pitt…”The Show About NOTHING”? FRANKly, No. “Must See TV”!
    Anyone for 🎢”Cha, Cha, Cha”🎢? πŸ“ΊπŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ™‹πŸ»

  2. The “sitcom” star was usually very NIMBLE, but after taking a medicinal douse of COGNAC, she became like PUTTY in the arms of her partner.
    No problem with today’s cluewords or the solution. Perhaps becaus recently I thought another word was cognac but did not have two “c”s.

    • Thanks for reminding me about conga,Angela. I’m off to the beach with nephews so no time to drag up my memories of old sitcoms–later if I can still fiction after a daywith an 8 year old and a ten year old— No “My Three. Sons”. Thank goodnessπŸ‘¬ 🌞

  6. Figured out the answer to the cartoon right away. No problem with the clue words with the exception of cognac. That took paper, pencil and lots of scrambling. Sue, there are two of us that never watched Seinfeld. Have a good Wednesday everyone.

  7. Earl! Yes indeed, the cognac we ordered on 6/19 has finally arrived! Delivered by a CONGA line from the cargo hold of the UPS truck. A little early in the day for me, though (URP!)

    Good sir and Madame, I believe you are both mistaken about the Chicago skyline building. From the tapering sides, it is almost certainly the John Hancock Center on Northside. It was almost right outside my balcony when I lived on the 36th floor at the corner of Clark and North (C’mon Jeff, tell me I’m right!).

    I’ll join the list of those who almost never saw Seinfeld, although Angela knows that from our reading, some of THE REST OF US are MASTERS of the SPECTACULAR writing in the series.

    • Good morning, Steve. I didn’t go with a Chicago location. (Find one of my comments y’day about reading, Et tu, Steve…)! LOL. I thought the cartoon to be the Indianapolis skyline, and the Salesforce Tower. HAPPY FESTIVUS!…And, yes, I do try my best to be SPECTACULAR at playing MASTER! LOL…πŸ™‹πŸ»

      • Ok, now I understand. I was wondering why I couldn’t find a Salesforce tower in Chicago. You didn’t say Indy, and since Jeff has referenced Chicago so often with the Cubs, Wilco and all, I just assumed it. Not a problem of lack of attention, just lack of understanding! πŸ˜‰
        By the way, I missed #7 in the Asimov quiz.

  8. LOL…Dave lives in Chicago, no? I figured if that’s Jeff, he already knows where he lives. And it’s not a problem…just a concern! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I just got in from a meeting, haven’t done the quiz yet. But any quiz talk has to go on the other page,ok?

  9. Hi, Mike et al! Happy Wednesday! Instant puzzle answer, easy first 2 words. I count 7 self-jumbles for COGNAC but only 2 for NIMBLE.
    We never missed Seinfeld & were heart broken when it ended. The ending of only one other one made us that sad: Mash.
    Mike, have a safe trip!!!
    Enjoy your day.

  10. Hi, Steve! I knew that the prickly pear is edible, but I didn’t know it was called the Nopales. Thanks for helping me learn something new.
    Jerry read what you said about your late (sympathy) brother & said that he didn’t do anything like that. He said tell you that when he joined the Air Force, they sent him to Park Air Force Base in Oakland for Boot Camp. It didn’t have a runway because they used it only for initial training. From there he went to Texas for classes to be a jet mechanic, then to Nellis A.F. Base in Las Vegas where he stayed for 4 years.

    • Very interesting; I’d never heard of that base. My brother did his basic training at Lackland in San Antonio. I hope your family time was fun yesterday with or without cactus – see you tomorrow. πŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈπŸ™‚

  11. My normally NIMBLE mind was not clouded by COGNAC but was as dense as silly PUTTY this AM when I misused DOUSE for dose in my sentence. My FRIENDS please do not withhold CHEERS in the future as I am KEEPING UP APPEARANCES as best I can and dusring off DVDs of MY LITTLE MARGIE and for the floor walker to ask if I AM BEING SERVED.
    I’m guessing that those who read my sentences are too polite to point out my errors, leaving me to do it. Thanks all of youπŸ™ˆπŸ™ŠπŸ™‰

      • Angela–“My Little Margie” was a sitcom WAY back in the 50s and I don’t recall any of the stars. Keeping up appearances and Are you being served were BBC sit coms in the 80s I think– broadcast on some PBS stations.
        I was going to include All InThe Family in my post with the other US sit coms and then forgot,
        .And no I did not see the link sorry–not sure where it was.

  12. Hey Earl..I’m sitting out in the sun and I nodded off..! So relaxing outdoors,right? I looked it up. It starred Gale Storm, (which I think I recognize the name) and. Charles Farrell as her Father. Keeping up Apperances is on my Ch 13 and I believe it’s on either Friday or Saturday night. They’re old episode of course. All in the Family was great. If you go back to y’days page, (use the calendar on this page) you’ll see my reply to you and the link. On my end here, I can see the actual graphic, I’m not sure if it shows on your end also. Take a look, let me know if you see it. If not, I’ll just put it all back up here for you. Oh,sorry you got rained out. It’s beautiful here…maybe it’s coming, tho! πŸŒžπŸ™‹πŸ»
