Happy Wednesday, my friends! If you’re a regular visitor here at JumbleAnswer.com, you’re noticing that the layout of the page has been updated for the new year. I hope you enjoy the simple and streamlined look and if you’d like to see anything modified, please let me know in the comments section and I’ll see what I can do.
We’re at the middle of the week and this is when the puzzles seem to get a bit trickier. The first three clue words came instantly with DISOWN being the only word to give me a challenge. Yesterday we saw WINDOW which was still fresh in my mind, so I tried my best to make a word starting with WI. When that didn’t pan out, a few quick self-jumbles in the margin of my newspaper led me to OWNDIS which brought the correct answer into view.
Looking at the cartoon, it was obvious to me that Wonder Woman was the unnamed superhero referenced in the sentence. With perfect form she can be seen swinging the bat with the point of impact action lines indicating that the ball was hit just as it was crossing the center of the plate. We all know that Wonder Woman wears a tiara, and Jeff modified it a bit for his piece turning it into a visor to fit the softball theme. Perfection!
The letter layout was very cryptic leaving the answer well hidden. Without an M for WOMAN or WOMEN, I tried WONDER instead. With the remaining letters, ONE-HIT came quickly to finish the puzzle for today.
Have a wonderful Wednesday, and I’ll see you tomorrow!
