Jumble Answers for 09/18/2017








Good Monday morning everyone and welcome back to another week of Jumble fun!  SORRY is a fitting word for the first clue word today because I’m SORRY for sending out last Saturday’s answers by mistake!  All of the clue words were pretty straightforward with POETIC taking just a few extra seconds to decipher.  Moving along to the cartoon, we see an exterminator arriving on a call to a home that is infested with bugs.  You can clearly see three on the wall but I’m sure with that big tank of chemical spray, this woman’s nightmare will soon be solved.  The letter layout was fantastic and rather cryptic for a Monday morning solve.  PEST was the first word to come into view leaving BOOT A for the finish.  Have a merry Monday and I’ll see you tomorrow!  πŸ™‚

  1. Good morning, Mike. Love the post…Today you just MITE draw “The largest audience to witness the Jumble Answers, PERIOD…”! πŸ˜‚
    All the PEST…Sean Spicer πŸœπŸ™‹πŸ»

  2. 🎢’Cause I’d like to see you out in the moonlight, I’d like to kiss you way back in the sticks…I’d like to walk you through a field of wildflowers, And I’d like to check you for ticks…”🎢

    The crawly things I cannot bear
    Mine goes beyond a normal fear
    My “Bug Guy’s” here just like clockwork
    An ant alone, I’d go berserk.
    I’ve never seen a bug nor mouse…
    Cause you know me, I’ll burn the house…

    OK, so where do I BUGin? There’s some good MOTHerial here, and I’m ITCHing to start…Let’s get right to NIT…Today’s words: First glance? MOUSE of cards, knocked them right down. But, SPIDER little quirk today, Folks? SORRY and BERRY…R we to BEElieve two words, with double R’s? GNAT there’s anything wrong with that, but WASP up? And deBAIT?…(POETIC license). Great word choices, yet I’m afRAID there’s nothing new. But the solve, the pun? Forget a BAT it! “BOOT-A -PEST”? R you kidding me? I laughed so loud I woke the tenANTS! It’s pure genius! Dave, you’re the Albert ANTstein of punsters…RAT up there on top! This has to be one of your PEST! OK, the cartoon. We see the exterminator, and a woman. (She’s a blonde, dressed in purple. If only we could do a PEST mortem on that)! He’s wearing the biggest BOOTS, and carrying that canister SPRAYer, that weapon of MOUSE destruction. And then there’s these three little “things” crawling around, so WEEVIL looking. And SOOO close to the woman. How unnerving…BEETLE, my heart. Uh, let’s face it…as independANT as I am, as FLY as I try to BEE…Cartoon or no cartoon, these ANT-TICS of Jeff’s have me BUGging out! It’s making my skin CRAWL! Just the thought of these things encROACHing on my property is enough to make me lose my appetite this morning…And I was so HUNGARY!
    So, no breakfast, no eye candy…what to do? I think I MITE just grab my coffee and my copy of the “Great RATsby” and FLEA for a while. Oh, wait…no car around this morning. Should I walk, should I jog, should I ITCH hike? Whatever… I’ll just go find some place quiet…where no one will BUG me. Adios, MICE-chachos…Have a great day! πŸœπŸ•·πŸœπŸ™‹πŸ»

    • Wowsers! Definitely you are the master of Punmanship. Nobody does it better…in fact nobody does it as well. And your poems are pretty clever also. I would have to say that you are to words what Einstein was to science, Let’s see what my Dutch relatives have to say…..they say, “Dat meijse, Angela, erg slim is!” (That girl, Angela, is very clever!)

      • LOL…And you Sir, are the Master of Compliments! And I thank you very, very, much. So much so, that I’ve written you a little poem..
        When Eric Larson comes around, he always makes me smile…
        But then you give him a reply…and it sure takes awhile..
        You wait and wait, to no avail, he doesn’t holler back…
        An easily insulted one would surely cause a flack…
        I do appreciate the praise, I do so very much
        But how can I get through to him…unless I’m speaking Dutch?
        So I’ve resigned myself to feel that no more will I whine..
        If Eric Larson don’t respond, it’s his loss…it’s not mine!
        Sincerely, and with tongue planted firmly in cheek…
        I remain,
        Extremely appreciative. Thank you, kind Sir. ❀️ πŸ™‹πŸ»

  3. While the lecturer waxed POETIC about the DEBATE over the authorship of plays attributed to Wm. Shakespeare, the sleepy student in the back dropped his BERRY-flavored energy drink and turned the classroom into a SORRY, sticky “mess hall.”
    🎢A man walks down the street
    He says why am I soft in the middle
    The rest of my life is so hard
    I need a photo-opportunity
    I want a shot at redemption
    Don’t want to end up a cartoon
    In a cartoon graveyard
    Bone digger, Bone digger 🎢
    (Paul Simon’s. Just Call me Al)
    I’ll let these lyrics speak for the exterminator’s paunch.
    Easy solve today and if Angela can insert some musical notes in my lyrics, I would be grateful.

    • Voila! Your wish is my command! I’m afRAID the paunch is our bane, Earl. It WEIGHS heavy on us both! Your sentence today… IrrepROACHable! Hoping you have a great day! πŸœπŸ™‹πŸ»

      • Thanks for the help. Sorry if I encROACHed on your day for a MITE of aid but the Graceland song TICKled my warped sense of humor– especially the cartoon references.

        • Hey, Earl. You could never encROACH. I’m happy to help. RAT on with the song reference…AL’s I know is we MITE be stuck with the paunch like we’re stuck with the blondes in purple! It’s a LOUSEy situation, I know. Be MICE to get RID of them, but it looks like we’re TRAPPED! I know how much it BUGS you. If I had a choice, the lesser of two WEEVILS…? I’d opt to STOMP OUT the paunches too. So, what do you think? Should we keep NIT picking APHID today? Or just let it BEE? πŸœπŸ™‹πŸ»

        • LOL….Hmm. Now it’s my turn to consider the SAUCE! OK, I’ll alLOW it..Oh wait, that was y’day…What ever..I found it enterTRAINing just the same…Monday morning suits you well, Sir! …πŸ˜‚πŸ™‹πŸ»

        • MOOSE- One of my brothers needs me for a while…The one who tells me that lately, I’m “Never PRESENT”…Jeez, and I’m sooo good to him, too. Talk about looking a GIFT horse in the mouth…Anyway, The things we do for love…So I may be “silent” for awhile….(Hold the applause…) But “I’ll be BACH”…
          Just keep,a LISZT for me…(Who, coincidentally was Hungarian)! πŸ™‹πŸ»

        • MOOSE…I got in just in time to see Gardner out and the “Judge in Session”
          Magic # now at 6! Oh, this IS gonna happen …Have a good game! πŸ»πŸ™‹πŸ»

  4. Got the words in a flash. I *never* would have gotten the answer tho I must say it IS very clever.

    You guys are ready trippin’ today with your own word games. lol πŸ˜‰

    • Hey Denny..It’s really NIThing, if you LARVA what you’re doing!
      We don’t see you enough. I INSECTS you visit more often! Have a great night! πŸœπŸ™‹πŸ»

  5. Good morning. Nice puzzle for a Monday. The words came fairly quick except for poetic that took an extra minute to get. The cartoon answer took about ten minutes to get because I hate words that have puns for an answer. But I made up my mind I’d get it. Now onto tomorrow. Until then stay well. By the way,to get on I had to get in through the back door.

  6. I had ” a pest” before solving the words, but not “boot”. Like Mike, poetic took a little longer to solve, whereas the others were fairly immediate. Have a great day!

  7. I really like today’s and Friday’s puzzles. Friday, shot a 77. Saturday shot a 87, Today shot a 76. All on the same course, all under same weather conditions. Know why the Pros do not always make the “cut”.

  8. Angela—-I guess 🎢”Let it Be, Let it be……”🎢 would BEE the bigger way to go. Can’t help feeling a little WASPish when I see the pawn—-oops I mean paunch! Thanks for giving me a couple of giggles and an almost laugh-out-loud moment.

    • You’re very welcome, Earl. Almost? LOL…I laughed myself! πŸ˜‰ We all need a few laughs, in light of what goes on around us, right? 🎢”I Get By With a Little Help From My Friends…”🎢 Whatever it takes…WASPISH? πŸ˜‰ Enjoy your night! πŸ™‹πŸ»

      • An ALMOST laugh out loud moment! That will forever be my new definition of a TOUGH CROWD!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Don’t worry Angela, we know you got *plenty* more where those came from! πŸ‘πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

        • LOL..”🎢Almost Paradise …How could you ask for more…”🎢
          Long day. And you’ll never believe this…There’s a MOTH in here..You can’t make this stuff up…Circling the light. Either I SWAT him, or….I got the matches right here…😯 πŸ™‹πŸ»

          • ROTFL on both counts. My sides hurt! Can’t help with the moth, but with Earl and me, it’s just that Northern reserve you have to break through to EARN your laughs, like the Old Yankees. I considered it an honor when Leila told me I got Jerry to actually grin. πŸπŸ•―πŸ’‘

            “Got your matches RIGHT HEAH!”

            ❀️ “MOTH–RAA, we love you, MOTH–RAA!” ❀️ πŸ˜‚πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

            • Reserve? You are tawkin’ to me, right? The only thing reserved about me is my Johnnie Walker Gold Label! πŸ˜‰And I’m glad YOU find this funny, but it’s soooo not! Of all nights! Everyone’s at the Stadium, and I’m stuck here alone battling a Moth? The irony! So I turned off all the lights, and I’m hoping he’ll be drawn to the TV. ( Just my luck, he’s probably a Mets fan… ) Now I don’t even see him anymore..Sure, he’s probably already dining on my Cashmere…”Table for one, please..and I’ll have a glass of WATER..BUG glass of water..”. Yea, the heat probably made him thirsty…I hope he’s not drawn to the light of the iPad instead…then I’m really in trouble…And the blow torch’s in the garage..I’ll never make it….Imagine? Death by Moth? How MOTHifying πŸ˜₯
