Jumble Answers for 11/26/2017










Good Morning, Everyone! Β  πŸ“š ADVERSE….VERSE? Β To ‘V’ or not To ‘V’? πŸ“š

🎢POETRY in motion, see her gentle sway, A wave out on the ocean, could never move that way…🎢

  • πŸ“šπŸ“š I can’t imagine being in a deadlock match like this
    And having such resentment towards a fellow poetress.
    While competition’s healthy, and winning’s everyones goal
    I don’t think such an AVENUE is where I’d play a role.
    Something unSAVORY’s going on, and I’m surprised to see
    That even though the crowds upset, that’s one happy emcee.
    His being in the DRIVERs seat, you’d think he’d want to try
    To keep contestants friendly, and seeing eye to eye…
    I’ve been in competitions, and the SYSTEM didn’t go
    At all like this, where entrants look like they could come to blows…
    I’ve written poems for children, SESAME Street’s a favorite theme..
    I’ve written blue material, a voyeurs perfect dream.
    I’ve written about SUMMER days and winters cold as ice…
    But when reading work in public? I’ve always acted nice.
    So I just can’t imagine this, I mean what could be worse…?
    To make these women fight like this…It must be quite a purse! πŸ“šπŸ“š

Sunday words. 6 and 6. With anagrams to CHALLENGE the best of us.
We’re not seeing anything new, but we are seeing some serious WORD PLAY today. And we have enough Vs and Ss to choke a VERSE! Ok, our cartoon. Jeff puts us at a poetry competition, TITLED “Poetry Slam Championship”. With the key word being SLAM! The two female contestants are going at it TATE and NEELE! The audience appears stunned! There’s WYLIEing and NASHing of teeth! Over Poetry? Such adVERSEity? I just don’t get it…I mean, let’s be BLUNT. If they’ve done their best, just get out there and REED. It’s not like they’re going out there BLIND, you know? No need to get so WILDE over it, right? But these two are at each other’s THOREAUts! Anyway, the dialogue shows us them trying to UPDIKE, I mean upstage each other, in VERSE, no less. And the whole time the emcee is smiling. Doesn’t he notice the competition is CUMMINGS apart at the seams? Doesn’t he see that this has turned into a fight? Poet against Poet…“VERSES VERSUS VERSES”? HA! How’s that for a pun? Very well WRITTEN, Dave. Another WINNER! Ok, eye candy. I have to go with the emcees’ grin…I just can’t COTTON to it!!
So, there you have it folks, DUNN!
Have a great day, Everyone!….And METAPHORS be with you! πŸ“šπŸ™‹πŸ»

  1. Unlike yesterdays, this is a tough one. Had a problem with SESAME and SYSTEM, along with the solution. Have a good day.

    • LOL..Yea. That’s me… Lupo della notte! πŸ˜‰
      Have a great day, Moose. πŸ™‹πŸ»

      • β€œThe children of the night – what music they make!” Wolf and not owl, eh? Interesting! This talk of BΓ©la bagels is making me Hungary.

        • LOL. This is Poetry, not COUNTing! You need to LUGOSI someone about that Bagel! (Scary how I get you, huh)?
          Yep, Wolf. They’ve called me it ever since I was 4. I didn’t sleep much then either! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

        • Where’d you find it? Wikipedia or The Big Book of Italian Nicknames? πŸ˜‚πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

          • I actually guessed it right, but used Wikipedia to verify. πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

  2. The taxi DRIVER loved the SAVORY SESAME bagels on Seventh AVENUE and he devised an ingenious SYSTEM to eat them while driving during the SUMMER rush hour.
    Today’s clue words and solution surprised me for a Sunday—relatively easy time even though there were so many letters. All those Vs and Rs and Ss gave it away for me—that and the emphasis on poetry in the cartoon.
    BTW: For those who use an internet web site to do the Jumble—the one I go to for color has an error today—they have circled Y in SYSTEM. For those who only use that site, they will have problems.
    Well Dunne Angela for all the poetry puns in your pithy post. All that was lacking was “Open Sesame” from “Tales of Arabian Nights.”
    I”m off to enjoy a sesame bagel myself—sans cream cheese. Guilty pleasure .

    • Good morning, Earl. And you’re right about 7th Avenue, even if you’re being facetious. Can’t beat NYC bagels! Hands down, the best in America! Great sentence
      I’ve mentioned before the problems on the various on line sites regarding Sunday Jumbles. IDK why, but it seems to happen so frequently. That’s why I had advised going to them for “color”, but not content. I mentioned the best site, but I don’t want to keep repeating it, because I can understand Jeff and Daves’ concern for purchasing newspapers. Although from what I’ve noticed, a lot of readers don’t subscribe to a Sunday paper.
      I didn’t want to use SESAME again, since I had it in the poem, and I didn’t want to exSEED my allotted number! And as for the “poetry puns in my pithy post”, Thank you. I purposely tried to provide a plethora of poets that have provided me in the past with a profound, productive amount of verse, that played upon my imagination from puberty to present. Also note, my DUNN, is Stephen Dunn, an American poet.
      Enjoy your bagel! But sans cream cheese? You’re to be commended.
      Talk to you later. Have a great day! πŸ“šπŸ™‹πŸ»

  3. Good morning. Great puzzle. Nothing was an instant read although they were not that hard either. I got them in order from 1-6. After playing around with the letters they all came into view. As to the cartoon answer I simplified it by separating the letters into their groups. This gave me the answer right away. Great job Angela and Earl. Angela and Lelia Ann I had trouble trying to get back to what you said. I gave up after awhile. No problem so don’t fret. Today’s blog like yesterday’s came up so there was no back door needed. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Good morning, Paul. It is a really great puzzle today.
      Thank you very much. I know why you had a problem getting back to the comments, but no harm, no foul. Glad you enjoyed the puzzle, and I hope you have a great day, my Friend! Talk to you later. πŸ“šπŸ™‹πŸ»

    • Hi Betty. It surely was. How’d you do with all the “animal exit lines”? I had a few people groaning… Tough crowd! LOL..Have a great day! πŸ“šπŸ™‹πŸ»

  4. Hi all – Got the words, and the answer was pretty easy after writing down the letters. I thought both contestants were a bit prosaic.
    β€œI’m a poet, and I don’t know it, but my feet show it; they’re Longfellows.” Ancient humor.

    SAVORY and SESAME? Ugh, no more food talk from me for awhile; I’m stuffed!

    I’ll be inside watching Denver play the Raiders in the rain and mud. Happy Sunday!

  5. Hey Steve. Forget the contestants, I just don’t get how the emcee didn’t see the (TS) Elephant in the room! (Came to me too late…)! πŸ˜‰
    What about 4 out of 6 words starting with an S? Not very VERSEatile, right?
    At least the rains better than a field covered in RHYME, no?
    Ok, Your turn! πŸ˜‰
    Have a good day, Bud! πŸ“šπŸ™‹πŸ»

    • My turn? It’s never cold enough here for the field to be covered in RHYME, and the MARINER’s season is long over. πŸ˜‰πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

      • LOL..,Good one, πŸ‘πŸ» Altgough a bit ANCIENT! πŸ˜‚
        And anyway…RHYME doesn’t pay… πŸ˜‚πŸ™‹πŸ»

        * The thread was off. I don’t know how…

  6. Angela, Everyone loved the Animal Exit lines and no one had heard all of the ones you came up with And, yes, there were a few groans from the audience. We all agreed that you are the plethora of puns expert.

    • LOL…Yes, Betty. There definitely were a few groan inducers thrown in there! Glad you enjoyed them. And thank you. Take care. πŸ™‹πŸ»

      • Angela “How you doin”-old Brooklyn proverb. (Said with heavy Brooklyn accent.). Unable to get today’s blog. That being Monday 11/27/17. But have no fear cause I can tell you here. No problem with the words,begun was the last word I got. As to the cartoon answer I had a different word which I knew was wrong. I had observe. I just knew that the answer started with “v” but I just could not get observe out of my head. Finally I checked and spell check came up with three listing for those letters. So———-if this was a state or city test I’d get credit for a right answer. That’s my story and I’m sticking with that. Take care.

        • I’m doing well, Paul. How you doin’? I’m sorry you’re having a problem again, I hope your daughter-in-law can help you out like last time. Verbose is hardly an everyday word. And you know once you get a word in your head…you’re DONE! As they say in Brooklyn! πŸ˜‰ I can see where you’d pick up on observe.
          And yea, if it were a NY State/City test? You’d get a go! Stick with it, my Friend! πŸ˜‰
          Have a great night, Paul πŸ™‹πŸ»

  7. Speaking of the Jumble… Most of you don’t know that David L. Hoyt has an education foundation whose mission is to promote and develop play-based and collaborative learning. David and his team have gone in to countless schools and libraries to play GIANT educational games that promote teamwork, problem solving skills and having FUN, while learning. I, Jumble Jeff Knurek, happen to be the president of the foundation. That being said, as many of you may know, this Tuesday, the 28th, is a Day of Giving. This day has been designated by many charities as a day to donate to worthy causes. The David L. Hoyt Education Foundation is one of those. I’m offering a very unique enticement for you Jumble fans to donate to the foundation. If you donate $50 dollars, I will send you a signed Jumble book. If you donate $250 I will send you an original inked Jumble drawing! Please know that I do not draw the Jumble on paper with pen anymore, so there are only a finite amount of these available. And if you were to really reach down and want to donate $500, David and I will create a custom Jumble for you. I will do my best to capture you and a family member in an inked drawing that will be all yours! How does that sound for the ultimate present for someone you love? Please follow the link to find out more about the foundation and the Day of Giving. When you make a eligible donation for one of the gifts, contact me at jeff@jumble.com and I’ll follow up with the items.

    • May I suggest that Jeff, Mike or Angela re-post this early Monday? There’s usually less traffic on Sundays and many people might not come back to see this.

  8. HI, all! Slept until noon, hoped not to spend too much time on the puzzle today because of needing more rest, glanced at it, and reading the first word of the puzzle I had VERSES. After reading the dialog, I had VERSES VERSUS VERSES. My aunt was an accomplished poetry writer; I have several published books of her poems.

    Four words came immediately. Backed into SESAME and SYSTEM knowing that I needed only their S’s and E’s.

    Gracious! I didn’t post this! I hope late is better than never.

    • Hi Lelia. Never too late. We’re open 24/7! The puzzle was fun and an easy clever solve today. Your aunt’s a poet, that’s great! Poets unite! I’m published also, and I applaud anyone who loves poetry. Too bad the kids today don’t seem to appreciate it like we did. Glad you got some rest. Have a great night! πŸ“šπŸ™‹πŸ»
