POSLI = SPOIL

CHLSA = CLASH

COYDEM = COMEDY

ENKIOV = INVOKE

CARTOON ANSWER:

BIG BEN WAS BEING CONSTRUCTED BY WORKERS WHO HAD —-

OICLCDNKE = CLOCKED IN

Good morning everyone and happy Thursday!  All of the clue words were easily solved today with no trouble whatsoever.  I’m hesitant to pick SPOIL as the most difficult anagram to decipher, but what the heck, why not?!  Moving forward to the cartoon, we revisit Big Ben but this time from the inside.  Two men are having a conversation as to the whereabouts of their fellow bloke while another man in a top hat appears to be pointing with delight at the only visible bell in the frame.  I’d assume that Jeff intended for the man in the top hat to be the keeper of the clock by giving him the distinguished look of a very important individual.  The letter layout for the final solve was very cryptic and kept the solution well hidden.  CLOCK immediately came to mind as part of the answer.  Crossing out the letters left the rest of the solution to appear almost instantly.  Have a terrific Thursday and I’ll see you tomorrow!

OUNNI = UNION

SIVTA = VISTA

EREPEK = KEEPER

RACGLI = GARLIC

CARTOON ANSWER:

TO HELP THE YOUNG HUNTING DOG LEARN, THE EXPERIENCED HUNTING DOG —

NIOVSTEPEGAR = GAVE POINTERS

Good Wednesday morning everyone!  KEEPER was the only word that gave me some grief today.  I first solved it as PEEKER, which is an actual word, but it didn’t look right and seemed too obscure to be correct.  Today was a situation where I ended up backing into the word after solving the cartoon answer, but more on that in just a second.  Jeff gave us a wonderful cartoon with enough detail to make it an almost instant solve.  The adult dog can be seen demonstrating proper birding technique while giving the young pup a few verbal instructions as well.  I enjoyed the look of determination on the little guys face which indicates that he’s a little too over eager to get the duck than to show restraint and just point.  The rubber duck decoy was a brilliant addition to the cartoon which suggests that not only were no ducks harmed during training, but even if he does pounce, there would be no harm, no fowl!  Writing out the clue letters from the three words that I solved, I had enough letters to get me to the solution and back into the word I was unable to solve.  Have a wonderful Wednesday and I’ll see you tomorrow!

We’re getting close to the end of our shoutouts, but there are still a few more friends that need to be recognized.  Today’s shoutout belongs to Earl!  A relatively new member of the forum, Earl takes the time to use all of the clue words from the puzzle and transforms them into one brilliant sentence.  Day after day he amazes us with his skillful technique and it’s always a highlight of my morning to see how he uses them. Thank you for adding another dimension to an already fun puzzle, Earl, and enjoy your day!  🙂

LOAKA = KOALA

LRIGL = GRILL

FIMDEF = MIFFED

TERNEL = RELENT

CARTOON ANSWER:

KONG HAD TROUBLE FINDING A MEAL THAT WAS —

KOAGIIFFRNT = FIT FOR A KING

Good Tuesday morning everyone!  RELENT edged out MIFFED as my choice for the most challenging word today.  I’m not a fan of past tense words being used as clue words as the -ED ending turns a 6-letter word into another 4-letter word solve.  There are those days when the -ED ending is part of the word but it’s very rare.  Moving on to the cartoon, we’re outside of Chef Franc’s Restaurant (most likely on Mulberry Street in NYC) where Kong is looking spiffy, sporting a striped tie and a perfectly coiffed hairdo.  Ann can be seen looking fashionably dressed herself in a beautiful dress and heels.  As the chef explains that he’s unable to accommodate the couple, Ann attempts to assuage Kong by telling him that it’ll be all right.  One can only guess what happens next, and I hope the chef understands what happens when Kong gets angry!  The solution to the cartoon wasn’t overly difficult.  Writing out the clue letters, KING was an instant solve leaving FIT FOR A to flow naturally for me.  Have a terrific Tuesday and I’ll see you tomorrow!

Jumble Answers for 09/25/2017

CUHHT = HUTCH

MEECE = EMCEE

RAYALS = SALARY

TYUJLS = JUSTLY

CARTOON ANSWER:

WHEN THE FARMER GREETED THE HORSES AT FEEDING TIME, HE SAID…

HHEEARTY = “HAY” THERE

Good Monday morning my friends and welcome back to another week of Jumble fun!  Excellent clue word choices today with SALARY being my pick for the most difficult anagram to solve.  EMCEE would be the runner up.  We’ve seen it so many times in the past and the three E’s give it away instantly, but it still might snare the novice player.  Moving on to the cartoon, we see a farmer tending to his horses by offering up an early morning breakfast.  One horse is already chowing down while the other can be seen with a smile on his face.  I’ve never seen a horse smile, but I guess anything is possible down on the Jumble farm!  The key word for me in today’s Jumble dialogue and sentence was greeted.  The hay was the visual clue to tie it all together leaving this one an instant solve.  Writing out the clue letters, it was funny that it almost spelled HEARTY.  Have a marvelous Monday and I’ll see you tomorrow!

TUWOTI – OUTWIT

ASULRW – WALRUS

RIFYAL – FAIRLY

RUPYLE – PURELY

CAFEED – DEFACE

THILGC – GLITCH

CARTOON ANSWER:

AFTER BEING DEALT A ROYAL FLUSH, THE POKER PLAYER HAD A :

OTARSFAIPLEDCEGH – GREAT DEAL OF CHIPS

♦️I like the sound a shuffle makes, I even like the feel
Of holding cards within my hands before I make the deal
I like the glossy red and white, the pips a shiny black
I deal real fast, I call the cards, I’ve developed quite a knack
But sometimes if a new seats’s filled, I often get a glance
While dealing with my left hand while I play the game of chance
I shake it off, I’m not deterred, I let the cards unfurl…
‘Cause being “Lefty’s” not the rub…The rub’s that I’m a girl! ♦️

POKER playing! Where trying to PURELY OUTWIT your opponents can be FAIRLY easy, as long as there isn’t a GLITCH, like a DEFACEd deck of cards. I love a good game of POKER! And I loved today’s puzzle. The words were easy BETS, I could TELL the minute I CHECKed them OUT; and I BLINDly went through them real FAST. I just wanted to RUNNER RUNNER STRAIGHT to that cartoon, and get ALL IN. Jeff’s DRAWing gives us a POKER TABLE, and there’s NO LIMIT to it’s ACTION! The one player, wearing the Jumble CAP, is like…”COME, HAND me the CHIPS”! He’s just been DEALT a ROYAL FLUSH, and it’s PAYd OFF big! As he RAKEs in all the CHIPS, the other players are a little BURNed up, because he’s TOKEn everyone’s money! And he now has a “GREAT DEAL OF CHIPS”! And we have the solution! With a great pun, as a little SIDE POT! You hit the JACKPOT, Guys! Oh, eye candy. ODDS have it, that at least a PAIR of the players are “real” people. I don’t know who they REPRESENT, but maybe one of you can make the CALL. I just know that the pink Breast Cancer Awareness Ribbon is a HIT with me.
So, that’s it Folks, done!…I’d love to stay and discuss POKER, but I’m expecting a FULL HOUSE today, and I’m UNDER THE GUN. This POST is way too long, there’s no TIME to edit…and I’m still eating a donut that’s TOO RICH FOR MY BLOOD. And…my coffee’s RUN COLD…It’s just not STACKing up to be the greatest day. I think my BEST BET may be to FOLD…And you know that never SUITS me…I don’t even like to FOLD my laundry…
Have a great day, Everyone! I hope you’re all DEALT a WINNING HAND!
PS: WALRUS? It was a FLOP! 🎶”You gotta know when to hold ’em..know when to fold ’em…Know when to WALK AWAY”🎶

GGION = GOING

DYOLD = ODDLY

FEDDIE = DEFIED

CCESIN = SCENIC

CARTOON ANSWER:

TO GET INFORMATION BEFORE CUTTING HAIR, THE SALON OWNER DID —

INGOLDEDEIC = “DO” DILIGENCE

Good morning everyone and happy Friday!  David and Jeff gave us some really fun puzzles this week, and it looks like they saved the best for last!  The clue words were superb with DEFIED being the most challenging anagram for me to decipher.  SCENIC has been used numerous times in the past but it still gives me that extra moment of pause.  With all of the clue words solved, it was on to the best part — the cartoon!  Reading the dialogue and sentence, I started my solve by trying to identify the key words that would be needed to help get me across the finish line.  Picking up on info, style, and thorough had me thinking about words associated with a hair salon.  DO came instantly as my choice for the two letter word in quotes.  DILIGENCE seemed like a reasonable fit and I wrote out the clue letters just to make sure my guess was correct.  Everything fit neatly into place leaving this puzzle with it’s stylish pun a cut above the rest!  I wish everyone a wonderful weekend and I’ll see you tomorrow!

Today’s shoutout goes to Betty!  It’s always a pleasure hearing her insights into the puzzle and she always ends her comments by wishing everyone a wonderful day.  Thanks for being a regular on the forum, Betty, and your cheerful disposition always brightens my day.  😊

NIHYS = SHINY

VEGAL = GAVEL

TRIBET = BITTER

GRETER = REGRET

CARTOON ANSWER:

THE ALASKAN FISHING-BOAT CAPTAIN WAS DISORIENTED AND NEEDED TO GET HIS —

SINGAEBITRRT = “BERING STRAIT”

Good morning and happy Thursday everyone!  The clue words were excellent today and a real challenge for the first time this week.  GAVEL took a few extra seconds to figure out.  I originally thought it was “glave” for some odd reason but it didn’t look right and I found my mistake.  REGRET was the other stumper and it’s also my pick for the most difficult anagram.  The double E’s and R’s sure had me scratching my head!  Sailing on to the cartoon, we find ourselves inside the Captains Bridge where an interesting trio of salty sea folk are  discussing nautical nuances.  As they attempt to figure out exactly where they are, a few clues (as well as a nasty habit) are clearly visible to guide us in the right direction for the solve.  The letter layout for the final solution was very cryptic and gave nothing away.  Knowing a bit of geography was a big help in steering me right to the answer and an excellent punchline.  Have a terrific Thursday and I’ll see you tomorrow!
