BIG BEN WAS BEING CONSTRUCTED BY WORKERS WHO HAD —-

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!
