CARTOON ANSWER: WHEN THE OWLS MADE THEIR PLANS, THEY WERE- –

OHTICOSAN – – IN CAHOOTS

Good Morning, Everyone! Β “OWL BE SEEING YOU”!

🎢”But still you wonder, WHO’s cheatin’ WHO, And WHO’S bein’ true? WHO don’t even care anymore? It makes you wonder, WHO’S doin’ right by someone tonight, And WHOse car is parked next door…”🎢 First song that popped into my head…Not even close? HOO-WHO..? Hey, I just hear ’em, Folks, I don’t write ’em…
OWL kidding aside, I think you either “know” today’s answer phrase or you don’t. I’m only saying this because a few years back, saying this to one of my nephews, he cracked up with laughter. “In cahoots? What the he– is in cahoots”? And you know, for a second there I wasn’t sure myself! It just came FLYING out of my mouth…”You and your brother are in cahoots with this aren’t you”? So I called him this morning at 6AM, and asked him if he remembered. Three things: 1- He did. 2- He’s used it since then. 3- Most people reacted like he first did. (Well 4 actually, but….! Enough said)! Let’s get to our words…I feel confident in TALON YOUTH that we’ve seen these words before. Easy, breezy, done in one fell SWOOP. On to our cartoon: Two devious OWLS, planning to scare a squirrel. What are they figuring? Yelling “BEAK a BOO? Is this what OWLS do? Sit in TREES and wait for the NEST victim, plotting FOWL play? But aren’t OWLS nocturnal, and squirrels diurnal? Is this normal, or just a one-NIGHT STRAND? Some FLIGHT of fancy on Jeff’s part? And look at the grin on that squirrels face, NUThings fazing him! All bright-eyed and BUSHY TAILED! He’s has no clue…Wait a minute, WAIT -A- MINUTE….Are they going to eat him? BeCLAWS if they are…Oh, this is just NUTS! That poor squirrel. Look, I’m no fan of squirrels, going around CHOPPYing from tree to tree. But I don’t want to see these TU-LIP him apart, LIMB from LIMB! HOO’s idea was this? Jeff? Dave? Are you guys “IN CAHOOTS” with this?…BABOOM! The solve, Folks! OWL rest my case…Eye candy? That grin. An OWLbsolute HOOT!
Jumble Guys, cute puzzle. I’m not NUTS about it, but OWL live. Can’t FAUNA over it, but I’ll survive…and PREY the squirrel does too…
FINAL THOUGHT, if I may. If you get a chance today, check out LaDainian Tomlinson’s Hall of Fame acceptance speech from Saturday night. Moving, unifying, truly inspirational… 🎢”OWL you need is love…”🎢
Happy Monday, Everyone! OWL see you around… πŸ¦‰πŸ™‹πŸ»

  1. CHOPPY high water along the coast of the Netherlands led the YOUTH to rescue a rare STRAND of TULIP, ensuring its survival.
    No problems with word solving or the answer to today’s cartoon– probably because I am also familiar with the phrase in cahoots” which I learned watching very old westerns on television and films. At least I think that’s where I first heard it.
    Great post Angela, you had me hooting and wondering where “The Owl and the Pussycat” were.

    • Good morning, Earl. Thank you! Missed you y’day. I don’t know how you do it. And the Netherlands to boot! Or should I say to HOOT! Great sentence! I was Hooting a bit myself, especially after talking to my nephew! Boy after my own heart! ❀️ We “get” each other..poor kid! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ You know “The Owl and the Pussycat” crossed my mind, but then I figured I’d have to make cat puns besides the owls and squirrels….and trust me, I was NUTTY enough already!

    • Good morning, Paul. I do think it’s a phrase that you’d have to just know. I’m wondering if it’s something regional. Like Earl, I have no idea where I know it from, but it immediately came to mind. As long as we enjoy the challenge, we’re winners though, right? Enjoy your day. πŸΏπŸ™‹πŸ»

      • That’s an old expression that was used many years ago. But I really haven’t heard it since I was a wee bit of a lad. Plus from old westerns like someone said. It just came to my attention that you mentioned a Pete. By any chance you know someone at the bocce court There is three Petes there. Also an Angela but your too young to be her.

      • Hey Paul. Yes, we’re all agreeing that’s it not something you hear anymore nowadays. But I do like the sound of it!
        Paul, If you’re referring to the Peet I sometimes reply to Steve with? I tease him with that because he gets a morning coffee at a place called PEETS, and I chalk his “posting flurry” up to the caffeine! I usually only play Bocce with the men in my family, and they tell me I can improve! But they tell me a lot of things…If I took it all to heart, I’d be living alone on an island somewhere…! πŸ˜‚πŸ™‹πŸ»

  6. Fun puzzle today. I knew cahoots but like others don’t know when or where I learned it though like Earl, associate with old westerns.I too would question whether or not young folks are familiar with the word. I’ll have to ask my grandson. Maybe it will show up on the SAT. Have a good day everyone.

    • Good afternoon, Eric. SOORT SIR…. This is like a Rosetta Stone crash course! Thank you, once again. And truth be told, I was disappointed in my effort today, not much to work with. How much can one say about Cahoots? I bet the word has gotten repeated more times here today than it has in years!
