Good morning everyone and happy Wednesday! The clue words all came instantly into view and were no problem at all. This is one one of those days where I’ll let our friendly Jumble panel pick the most difficult one. If I were a betting man, I’d be bullish on ICING.
The market is open and shares of JUMBLE are way up in early morning trading! David looks rather pleased as he monitors the exchange board with a smile. In case you weren’t able to make out the other three symbols, they were SDKO (Sudoku), XWORDS (Crosswords) and WRDSRCH (Wordsearch). Jeff illustrated the pit of this exchange perfectly with characters in trading jackets using handheld devices to conduct trades. Everyone seems calm and relaxed except for the man in the far right of the panel. With his hands up to his head and his mouth wide open, he seems shocked to see the value of his stock plummeting. My favorite detail in this piece was the dollar sign earring being worn by the woman partaking in the IBM trade. It could have easily been mistaken as part of her hair if you didn’t look close enough (see below).
The surprise answer consisted of 7-letters and I had a feeling that STOCK would be part of it. Writing out the letters, STOCK was indeed there leaving IN for the finish. There simply weren’t enough letters to make the letter layout difficult making this Jumble more suited for the novice player. Have a wonderful Wednesday and I’ll see you tomorrow! 🙂
