Jumble Answers for 02/06/2018








Good Tuesday morning everyone! The first two clue words were no trouble at all and instantly came into view. BURGER was jumbled very well, but with the anagram starting with GER, it took just a slight pause to suss it out. FIGURE is my pick for the most difficult anagram this morning, but it wasn’t overly challenging either. The fact that it had 3-vowels was probably why it took a few seconds longer than the rest. With all of my clue letters solved, it was time to move on to the cartoon.

Looking at Jeff’s panel, I first saw a husband and wife duo in a small boutique shop that caters to men’s clothing. The man is standing on a small raised platform with a tri-fold mirror surrounding him so he can easily view all angles of his new attire. Does this particular dressing room staple have a proper name? It escapes me if it does but I’m sure we’ve all seen or utilized one.

Reading the sentence and dialogue, the man asks his significant other if the clothing looks good on him. It was at this point that I discovered a unique detail in the cartoon that seems to indicate that these two people are not a couple. If you look closely at the woman’s neck, you’ll see a tailor’s tape measure hanging which leads me to believe that the woman is in fact an employee of the shop! You never know where Jeff is going to place such a small detail, and it’s what makes me such a big fan of his work.

The letter layout for the solve was a single word containing 8-letters. David started the anagram with an S and surprisingly had the UI coupled together a little further down. SUITABLE instantly came into view making this solve a no-brainer. Have a terrific Tuesday and I’ll see you tomorrow!

    • I didn’t get burger to last,so I didn’t have the “u and the i” paired so I didn’t see suit in the solution,but did see able ,so suitable finally came into view.

  1. 🎢And as long as I’ve got my SUIT and TIE, I’ma leave it all on the floor tonight. And you got fixed up to the nines..Let me show you a few things. All pressed up in BLACK and WHITE …You’re dressed in that dress I like…Love is swinging in the air tonight…Let me show you a few things..let me show you a few things…🎢

    πŸ‘”πŸ‘” “Black Tie Optional” we often see, on a lot of invitations
    And I don’t mind, because I love all kind of celebrations..
    But seeing him dressed in his tux, I have to tell the truth…
    How good he looks? A man’s a man when he puts on a suit…
    Today we’re all so casual, the BURGER and the jeans
    And it’s all good, this ain’t a STAND against it, by no means..
    But when my man puts on that suit, and STANDs there looking fine..
    I have to say, the pulse does skip, and that’s before the wine…!
    By now I FIGURE LARVA isn’t getting in this rhyme
    I’ve tried and there’s no way today, I’ve wasted too much time…
    So let’s just say no matter what he wears it’s all acceptable
    But in that suit? It’s just a thing…Yea, it’s just so, so..SUITABLE! πŸ‘”πŸ‘”

    I know I’ve seen today’s words adDRESSed before. Were they all here, or in Dave’s Just Jumble app? Not sure. Either way, great anagrams, IMO. Our puzzle. At first, I thought the man and woman were a couple. Out shopping, picking up some Formal Attire for our man. But looking closer, I see the measuring tape around the woman’s neck. So, they’re not together. But he sure will be once he gets DRESSED up in that Tux! He’ll go to his Black Tie Event, and may very well turn a few other guys GREEN with envy! Just sayin’! Ok, the dialogue tells us “it’s perfect”…and our question asks what kind of an outfit does he need…So…One’s that SUITABLE! Boom! Button up that top button, and tie that tie! We’re DRESSED for the day! Good one, Dave! Ok, let’s TIE this up…Eye candy..Not too much to see today. I like the cuffs…Made me look up…The 3-way mirror is a nice touch, but we’ve SEEN that before. No, it has to be that Tape Measure…Measuring the CUT of that SUIT…and the CUT of that man..! So, There you have it , Folks, Done!
    Have a great day, Everyone! And always remember…SUIT yourself! πŸ‘”πŸ™‹πŸ»

  2. Good morning. Thanks Mike again for your detail. Remember when I said I look but not really look at the picture. This time I did by studying it and although it took quite awhile,when I went for my second cup of coffee,the light bulb lit up and the image was of the worker pointing at his suit. I immediately yelled out the answer as if somebody was there to hear. Here I was all alone and no-one to share my triumph with. Poor me.! Lol. For me the words were easy but,larva was the one that gave me a slight pause. Until tomorrow stay well.

      • Thank you Mike. I accept the coveted Jumble award with great humility. Angela, kudos to you. Did you have any luck with the football boxes? I fumbled. I’ve been in baseball pools football pools,also lottery pools but never won. They say it’s better to give than receive but I would like to know how it feels on the other end.

      • Good Morning, Paul. Thank you, and back at ya, on your trophy! πŸ‘πŸ»
        I know where you’re coming from, Brooklyn…I’ve made many a “donation” myself…
        But, yes, Lady Luck did smile on me. I went in “liking” the Eagles. SO…Lets just say..Instead of me coming into Brooklyn and taking you out to Roll N Roaster? How ’bout we do Peter Luger’s instead? πŸ˜‰
        And you can never fumble far as I’m concerned…You’ll get ’em next time! πŸ™‹πŸ»


  3. Trying to FIGURE a way to attract millennials to the family BURGER STAND, the youngest member introduced bee LARVA to the ground meat.
    Cannot comment on anything right now. Had an appointment with my opthamologist and had drops which are still causing blurred vision. Had a friend post my sentence. Later everyone.

    • I knew you were going to use larva and burger in your sentence just as you did, Earl! I was going to make a comment in my observations on the words but just had that feeling…. Also, I didn’t see BURGER STAND together. Excellent as always! And many thanks to your friend for posting it while you’re recovering from your procedure. You’re dedication is phenomenal, my friend. πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ»

  4. Hi all – BURGER took an extra look after discarding other possibilities, and FIGURE appeared just as I was about to write down the letters. My first thought for the answer was that COLORFUL would fit, but the letters didn’t match nor did the clothes.
    Although when you look at the Grammys, Oscars etc. these days, I guess you can be colorful at a black tie event if you have the courage. Had to write the letters to get the answer. And of course in the Chronicle, two of the three jackets hanging on the rack are purple.

    Have a great day!

    Lelia, I’ll leave a note on IOW

    • You know, Steve…You should really speak to them about their “ink” because they never SEAM to get it right, do they?! Our saleswoman, of course, is clad in purple, (and there’s even a tinge of blonde in her hair…), but the only other purple is a jacket in the window, The rack holds two brown tones and a blue. But then again, the Chronicle does give good “INK” when it comes to their Sports section…So..maybe we just let sleeping dogs TIE, huh? Talk to you later, Grasshopper…πŸ‘”πŸ™‹πŸ»


  5. Hi, all! I read the cartoon question first, as usual, but didn’t think of a SUITABLE solve, so began with the words. First 2 easy, last 2 fun to figure out.

    I have cute stories about dragging Jerry out to buy new suits over the years so he could continue to be, in my eyes, the handsomest & best dressed guy in church, but my to-do list is a mile long today.

    Earl, I wondered how in the world you would combine burger & larva in the same sentence without our having to eat the larva, but you handled it well, as usual. Good for you for getting your eyes checked. I am overdue.

    Happy Tuesday, all.

  6. Angela,was it a straight bet or from the boxes that you won? That’s a mighty tempting offer but I have to decline, Thank You. Forgive me for saying this but I do not air my laundry in public. I’m old school,not on face book or whatever else the kids have nowadays to let the world know their every move. Just figured that when the weather got warmer and you were in Brooklyn you would stop by the bocce court. This way you could look and run or stick around for an introduction. No harm no foul. I say this with good intentions.

    • Paul…You may just be the sweetest man I know. You sure know how to let a girl down easy! You’re the consummate Gentleman! And I bet you’re the kind of man who wouldn’t let a woman pay for dinner anyway! No need to explain and/or apologize…all in good fun. For the record, I don’t do Facebook either. I just get a heads up when there’s pictures of the kids, and I take a look. All the rest…I could do without…So, no Peter Lugers for us, and we’ll just let the Bocce balls roll where they may. As for the game? I’m going to take a page from your book…And say a woman doesn’t kiss and tell…Or is that a Gentleman? I’ve never read the whole book!!πŸ˜… Let’s just say I covered all the bases…(Oh, wait, that’s Baseball)! Have a good night, Brooklyn..And rest assured, no harm, no foul, and you never fail to make me smile.
      You and I are always better than good…πŸ™‹πŸ»
