Happy Friday, my friends! Looking back at all of the wonderful puzzles this week, my favorite one was Monday’s “WADING-AREA” Jumble featuring a younger Walt Disney and his pal Donald Duck. It had a surprise answer in quotes and I was really excited to see that today’s game also had one — that’s two in one week!
If you’re visiting this website for the first time, my guess would be that you arrived here looking for the solution to PUNDIT. It was, in my opinion, the most challenging of the four. It’s a word not seen or used often unless you watch the larger news channels where it is occasionally mentioned while introducing someone that is a scholar or otherwise very knowledgeable in a particular subject or matter. EXUDE could also have been a struggle, but the X and the two E’s limited the amount of possible word combinations.
Moving along to the cartoon, it featured two women having a conversation while some type of dance party is occurring in the background. Reading the dialogue and sentence, we discover the women are teachers or volunteers who are checking the guest list of a prom. In the dialogue of the woman on the left, she makes mention of our well known Jumble hero, David L. Hoyt as well as a woman by the name of Claire Haasl. Fans of the Jumble will immediately recognize her name and know that David is dancing with his future wife. At first I wasn’t sure which man was David because I’ve never seen a picture of him with hair. Jeff did a great job of clearing that up by having the woman pointing to the couple on the right. And just look at his dance moves! His arm’s are flapping and and he’s really shaking and grooving! I wonder if it’s the song that’s playing that has him in such a good mood? Or maybe it’s the fact that he’s spending the evening with his love interest during one of the most cherished events in a students final year. I’d assume that it’s DEFINITELY the second choice!
The solve was a no-brainer after writing out the clue letters. The list that the woman were holding was the clue that pulled it all together for me. The letter layout was well done but starting it with an A made it way too easy.
Have a fantastic Friday, and I’ll see you tomorrow!
