Good Wednesday morning, Jumble friends! Regular players of the Jumble won’t find any problems with today’s clue words as they were all old favorites. If you found yourself stuck, it was most likely GLADE or SHREWD that required a second look. Overall, SHREWD would be my pick for the most difficult anagram of the day. We last saw it on 2/25 where the cartoon and surprise answer were very similar to today’s game. Either David is creating similar puzzles by pure coincidence or he’s having some serious car trouble!
Looking at the cartoon, the setting appears to be an auto repair shop but the plethora of tires in the background leads me to believe that this is actually a tire replacement shop. Kudos to Jeff for changing the setting ever so slightly to set it apart from that 2/25 puzzle! Looking at our characters, we see two employees that are polar opposites of one another. The man in the back seems like he’s the type of guy that wants to work smarter and not harder. With his safety glasses on, he informs his co-worker that he has found his toolbox. In a rush to get the job done, the other man decides to carry the lug wrenches all at once. I’m not sure why he thinks he needs so may different wrenches as lug nuts are pretty universal and are usually only different on after market tires!
After reading the dialogue and sentence and seeing all those LUG WRENCHES in the cartoon, the answer was a blind solve. I wrote out the clue letters just to check myself and the layout was wonderfully cryptic and hid the answer extremely well. Have a wonderful Wednesday and I’ll see you tomorrow!
