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!
Today’s shoutout goes to Moose! When I started this blog a few years ago, Moose was the only soul that took the time to leave comments on my site. Much has changed in the years that followed and many folks have joined in the fun. I’ll be forever greatful to him for breaking the ice and showing others how much fun talking about the Jumble could be. Thanks for being such a wonderful friend and getting the ball rolling, Moose. Enjoy your day! 🙂
