Jumble Answers for 07/24/2017








Good Monday morning everyone and welcome back to another week of Jumble fun! After cooking the kids a wonderful breakfast and getting them occupied with some rainy day activities, I can finally take a few minutes to enjoy the Jumble with my coffee. Excellent clue words this morning with APPEAR being the only word to give me few extra seconds of pause. Moving on to the cartoon, you didn’t need to be a brain sturgeon to figure this one out. It appears the setting for this one is a dive bar where a trio of fish are jamming away and entertaining the crowd with some old school rock. You could even say they’re putting their heart and sole into it! The letter layout was excellent but I had an idea as to what the solution was before starting the final solve. Interestingly enough, I saw that the letters could also spell out REGROUPS, but only GROUPERS made sense. My favorite part of the cartoon had to be the tuna fish can drums that I’ve added a photo of down below. Jeff gave us one hull of a drawing and I bet he’s fishing for some compliments, so I’ll just say it has me kraken up. Have a marvelous Monday and I’ll sea you tomorrow. πŸ™‚

  1. Good morning, Mike! Brain STURGEON! DIVE bar…! You’re KRILLing me! Whether he’s FISHING for the compliments or not, it’s the cutest puzzle! Pouring here….β›ˆπŸ™‹πŸ»

      • I “caught” “old school”, Mike. Very good from both you and Angela, and so early in the morning – don’t know how you do it.

        • It only takes 20 minutes a day, Steve. I wish I had these puzzles a day or two in advance. Then I’d go bananas with them! Finding a quiet time to post is the difficult part. Everyone is always needing something. πŸ™‚

          • Time to commandeer the she-shed! πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

            • Then it’d be a He-She Shed! That could be a RED HERRING! Make no BONES about it, that could cause a problem! His wife might hire an Attorney-at-LURE over it! πŸ˜‚πŸ™‹πŸ»

        • Thanks, Steve. It”s easier for me, I guess, because I don’t have BIGGER FISH to FRY, in the mornings, so I have the time to SPAWN some ideas. πŸ˜‚πŸ™‹πŸ»

  2. 🎢”Because there’s too many 🐠 FISH in the SEA…I said, there’s short ones, tall ones, fine ones, kind ones…Too many 🐟 FISH in the SEA…”🎢

    WHALE, WHALE, WHALE, WATER we have here? This SCAMPI happening! Something’s rEELy FISHY! Remember Hellen’s puzzle from yesterday? Remember that paper she spoke about? WHALE it looks like the DEVIL RAYed them do it! Printed the puzzle a day too soon! WALLEYE’ll be! Did this take the air out of my SCALES! I don’t think it was done on PORPOISE, but it SHORE threw me off my PERCH! I mean, I’m not looking to be FINicky or make ANEMONE over it, but ALBACORE to remember this! Kind of put a DAMPer on things…Opened up a whole new can of WORMS, no? Anyway, right aBAIT now, WATER we going to do? Let’s just move on, HOKI?

    So, today we SEA a GROUPER FISH, singing a TUNE-A, and the GROUPIES that follow them! COD it be any cuter? The words didn’t OFFER any challenge, (SOLEly because some of us saw them yesterday)! Nothing to GRIPE about, though..they APPEAR easy enough. The cartoon? Looks like MORAY, the lead guitarist has nothing to CARP about; he might be HOOKed, but he won’t be cooked! PORGY, on BASS seems KOI and just SKATEing along. And SALMON TUNA, the drummer, is KRAKEN me up with that look on his face! Could it be because he’s making a living on the backs of his relatives? Those drums are β€œChicken of the Ocean” Tuna cans! C’mon…Could there be a BATTER trio? If you find one, just let MINNOW! Looks like these guys are having the most FUNGUS among us, right? No TROUT about it, they’re a hit, you can tell by their FIN following. Obviously having no trouble HERRING them, the GILLS in the audience (who CODly enough are purple and mauve) MAHI on to something! “YELLOW”! …TAIL your friends…This is the GROUP to CATCH! And, we didn’t need any KELP for the solve, either…WAHOO! Another BRILLiant OFFERing from those Jumble GARus!

    So, the eye candy? There is someFIN about that SHELL being used as the cymbal that sPIKEd my interest. But just for the HALIBUT, I’m going with the drums that are “Chicken of the OCEAN” cans! LOL…HOOK me up and REEL me in folks, it’s ofFISHial! They SHRIMPly ROCKed my world!
    …I’m DOLPHINately going to CLAM up now, CUSK I’m pretty sure that by this time, you’ve HADDOCK up to here with my puns!…What can I CRAY..!
    CARPe diem, Everyone! πŸŽΆπŸ πŸ™‹πŸ»

    • I missed BRILL in your writeup at first because I didn’t know the fish, but now we know where the song “You’ve got me Hooked” came from — the famous BRILL building near Tin Pan Alley in NYC which produced Bacharach-David, Goffin-King, Lieber-Stoller, Weil-Mann, Al Kooper, and so many others.
      (I think those are correct).

      • Knowing your propensity for details, I’m SHORE you checked it out before you posted it. And you’re always PACIFIC about things. The BRILL is beautiful. I had clients in the building, and loved going there. And we could FILLET this page two times over discussing it’s history! πŸ™‹πŸ»

  3. LOL..”Just when I thought I was TROUT.., they REELed me back in”! I had a WHALE of a time with this, this morning! Made up for all the rain…β›ˆπŸ™‹πŸ»

  4. When the teen-age boy experienced a toenail FUNGUS, he received an OFFER to APPEAR in a television advertisement but all he did was GRIPE about the hours and the pay.
    No problems with clue words or solution and no pen needed.
    Outstanding write up Angela!

    • Good morning, Earl, thank you! I found it so much fun this morning! I had to stop myself, because I saw it was reaching the threat of a short story! LOL..I was wondering what you’d do with fungus…as usual, you didn’t disappoint! Buckets of rain here, all or nothing…Hope all is well. β›ˆπŸ™‹πŸ»

  5. LOL…Didn’t you tell me you had a LOX on your plate today? I’m not looking to STRING you along here, but you know me, I still got a BOATLOAD of them….I’m HOOKED! No deBAITing that point! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ πŸ™‹πŸ»

      • Sorry I took a while, I was stuck on the other LINE…Yea, TUNA today does seem a but TRIPE! I may be running to the store…and no, not ALBACOREne and FISH! So you have a half hour to KRILL? If we keep this up, by then we may be SHARK raving mad!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ™‹πŸ»

  6. OMC! (Oh My Cod!) ROTFL. πŸ˜‚
    Which one is Country Joe? And where are all the GROUP-IES? At least tip them a FIN on your way out the door, just for the HALIBUT.

    Jeff really outdid himself with the expression on the poor drummer’s face (worthy of Keith MOON-fish) as he flounders around, but it’s nicely explained by his having to get good sounds out of a scallop shell, fish food cans, and whatever that bass drum is. (I thought it was a big sushi roll at first, and that would have been even worse!) Wouldn’t that freak him out a bit? A bit CANnibalistic! That could have been a family member in there.

    My favorite fish cartoon – two caught fish are in a pail on the fisherman’s boat, and one says to the other, “You know, the ironic thing is that I was only eating because I was bored.”

    Here’s some British money for Earl, and a ray of hope for fishing and the weather for all you in the Northeast, I gather (“Stoned me”? Maybe they were fishing for rock cod):

    🎡” Half a mile from the county fair
    And the rain came pourin’ down
    Me and Billy standin’ there
    With a silver half a crown
    Hands are full of fishin’ rod
    And the tackle on our backs
    We just stood there gettin’ wet
    With our backs against the fence
    Oh, the water, Oh-oh, the water, Oh, the water
    Hope it don’t rain all day
    And it stoned me to my soul
    Stoned me just like Jelly Roll
    And it stoned me
    And it stoned me to my soul
    Stoned me just like goin’ home
    And it stoned me” 🎡

        • One would hope so! Either that or be enTANGLED in that mess all day! By the way, I opt to be Country Joe. He’s a paciFISHt like me! And he’s got such a way with words! Gotta love the alLURE of a witty songsmith!
