BULMA = ALBUM

PAYLP = APPLY

BASYHB = SHABBY

PUNDIA = UNPAID

CARTOON ANSWER:

THE FUTURE EYE DOCTORS WERE – – –

LPPSUI = PUPILS

Good Monday morning my friends and welcome back to another week of Jumble fun! The clue word choices by Mr. Hoyt were a little more challenging for a Monday, with all of them in perfect alphabetical order once solved. UNPAID took the longest for me to decipher, but the old trick of pairing the U and N together got me out of the jam.

We’ve been seeing Mr. Knurek use the classroom as the setting for many of his cartoons lately, and today’s panel features 5 students in a room with an instructor. As the instructor points to the giant eyeball on the table, she gives us some information in her dialogue that was key for the solve. Reading the 5-word sentence, I was able to blind solve this one for an instant finish and a very corne-a pun!

With the puzzle completed, I decided to take one good last look at the cartoon for some eye candy. The only detail that seemed interesting was the unique drawing that the young woman in the bottom right was making. On her paper (see image below) she appears to have drawn a pineapple. My best guess was that Jeff cleverly added this detail as a playful pun. Did you figure it out? P-EYE-N-APPLE?!?!?! Be sure to let us know what you think in the comments! Have a merry Monday and eye’ll see you tomorrow! 😊

  1. 🎢EYE’ll be SEEING you, in all the old familiar places…That this heart of mine embraces, all day through…EYE’ll find you in the morning sun, and when the night is new…EYE’ll be LOOKING at the moon…but EYE’ll be SEEING you….🎢

    πŸ‘€ πŸ‘€APPLYing to a Med School can cause a lot of stress
    One’s grades must be in order, not SHABBY scores or less.
    And loans are often accrued, and debts are often made
    One hopes to get established so these loans don’t go UNPAID.
    You’ll note the tablets used here, I’m sure this is the best
    Way to get all the notes in sync to study for a test.
    One sorts into an ALBUM to keep important facts
    Notice the guy who’s way in back…Does concentration lack?
    We hope they’ll be successful, we hope that they’ll fulfill
    Their dreams to become Doctors…but for now they’re just PUPILS! πŸ‘€ πŸ‘€

    Monday morning words. LENS take a LOOK. Has that one “UN” caused you to BLINK? Could it be you need EYE DROPS, or is it just that pesky old prefix causing you to TEAR up again? Is it …Number 1…or Number 2?…Which is better?.. Number 1? OR Number 2….? I OPT for Number 2! Ok, SEEing our way THROUGH, let’s move on to our cartoon. Jeff’s SHOWing us a classroom setting, with an EYE DOCTOR teaching. The five students are ABSORBED in the lesson. Well four of them, anyway. One just seems to be taking it LIGHTly. You can READ him like a book…”Is this going to be on the test”?? C’mon …I think he’s just making a SPECTACLE of himself, and I hope the teacher doesn’t LASH out at him…What’s his ANGLE anyway? He needs to just AQUEOUS to her, and pay attention! (I hope you’re enjoying my VITREOUS HUMOR)! … Anyway, LOOKING at the cartoon, on my EYEpad, EYE can see there’s not much to BROWS through. And you know I’m not a LAZY EYEd person!…I RETINA I’m one of the most DETAILed people there are! But this is pretty cut and DRY. Our question…Future Doctors were…PUPILS! EYE Caramba, how cute is that! Good one, Dave…! Easy, breezy, OPEN and SHUT case! Ok, EYE candy…As I said earlier, there’s not much to SEE. Just the PUPILS, the teacher, and the plastic model of an EYE. There really isn’t much REFRACTION here. There’s the teacher’s EYE-D badge, but it’s not such a SIGHT. But wait…Something does catch my EYE…The female student CLOSEst to the front? That’s not an APPLE on her tablet, it’s a P-EYEn-APPLE!…A TOPICAL fruit! And perhaps another pun! And how sweet is that? Well, that’s my EYE candy, and IRIS my case….! So, There you have it, Folks! Done!
    Have a great day, Everyone!! I do have a few more EYE jokes, but I think they’d just get CORNEA and CORNEA as I went along, so…EYE’ll just take my leave…SEE ‘ya ROUND! πŸ‘πŸ™‹πŸ»

  2. When the art historian went to APPLY for UNPAID leave to update his SHABBY photo ALBUM, he as told to do it on his own time.
    A Monday puzzle with a blind solve–great way to begin the week. Thanks Mike and Angela for the details, puns and sighting that spikey pineapple. You both deserve to have the best opthamlogist to keep that visual acuity
    Marvelous Monday everyone.🌲 ✨ 😏

    • Good morning, Earl. Thanks for the shout out! The P-EYEn APPLE did SPIKE my interest, the minute I SAW it! Good one!
      My ophthalmologist is ok…although I don’t go as often as I should. I DROP in every once in a VIAL. Short-SIGHTED on my part, I know. I should get more on the BALL about it…(Told you they’d get CORNEA and CORNEA)!
      Sorry your guy got the shaft…Maybe he should LOOK somewhere else…πŸ˜‚

  3. Hi – I did not notice anything on the paper until you mentioned it, Mike. Even with my magnifying glass, which I use sometimes, I wouldn’t have realized it was a pineapple, let alone a p-eye-n-apple. Great catch! Your eye puns had me smiling today, Angela. As for the answer, I first found slipup, which my dictionary has as slip-up, but other sources have as two words or one. Since it made no sense, I had to keep looking.

    • Hi, Caroline! I’m ecstatic that Jeff put that nugget in his drawing. I don’t recall the last time I’ve ever seen one so cleverly inserted. It really made my day. πŸ™‚

      As for the snowman, he is in the URL bar of web browser on my computer but doesn’t show up on my tablet for some reason. I don’t know how you access this website, but that may be the reason you’re not seeing him.

      • One of the best things about this blog, Mike, is your enthusiasm for the Jumble. I would never have appreciated it so much without you and others on here. I still don’t see the snowman, and noone’s built one in my neighborhood yet either, despite enough snow and lots of kids.

      • I can tell you from experience that the charm of handmade wreaths and such dissipates pretty quickly after an early morning of picking greens out of the snow in a farmer’s field at 20Β°. My brother and I did make our share of real snowmen, though.

  4. Good morning. Must admit you guys Dole’d out some interesting thoughts. You canned many a fine points. Just knew Monday would redeem a failed ending to last week. But I must admit it was just a tad harder than normal.album for me took a second look to get. The cartoon was not a blind solve,I needed the letters to get the answer. Until tomorrow stay well. Mike,without you telling me about the pineapple I never would have known without using the Magnifying glass.

  5. Easy time of it today. Unpaid took me the longest to solve. Even with my magnifying glass I can’t make out a pineapple. Eye guess eye’ll just have to accept the fact that you have better vision than I do or perhaps the picture in your paper is larger. Have a Happy Monday everyone.

  6. Hi all – The eyes have it, eh? Quick solve. That student in the back reminds me of a classmate of my dentist that he told me about. You know how teeth have standard numbers from one to … 32 is it? He said that during a final exam, they referred to a tooth number, and the classmate started working on the wrong side of the mouth! As he said, β€œInstant fail!”

    I hope your day is at least better than that!

  8. Hi, all! No surprises! This was our typically fast Monday solve that we have grown accustomed to and spoiled by.

    Thanks, Mike, for all the things you have also spoiled us with in your post, including your friendly salutation & closure, telling us about the details in the cartoon, and frequently posting a close-up picture of a detail or two. What a fun way to start our day (and week).

    Steve, IOW.

    • I’m glad that I’m part of your morning routine, Lelia! For the first couple of years, nobody ever commented, but I still posted day after day. When you’re passionate about something, it’s always fun, and I did it to mostly entertain myself. I never expected my tiny website to grow into something that helps nearly a quarter million people every month. 😊😊😊
