Good Monday morning, Jumble fans! Last week we saw some challenging clue words with PARDON, SHREWD, and EMBLEM being the top 3 that were searched for. We know that David and Jeff typically start the week with puzzles that are on the easier side, so let’s take a look and see what’s in store for us today!
We start off the game with MORGO which sounds like the name of a super hero antagonist. It was easily deciphered as was the next word which was FANCY. SNEEZE took a few extra glances before it finally gave itself up. Even though it had a “Z”, it was jumbled so well that I had to stare at it just a little longer to figure it out. THORNY was no trouble at all which left me to choose SNEEZE as the most difficult anagram of the day.
The cartoon for today features a husband and wife that are in the market to purchase a new recliner. We see several other models in the panel but hubby seems to have made up his mind. When his wife looks at the price tag you can see the sticker shock setting in on her face. She tells her husband that the price is more than their bedroom set so he quickly decides that it’s wiser to stick with his old one.
The final solution to this Jumble was a blind solve which means that the aid of the clue letters wasn’t necessary for me to figure it out. I always write out the clue letters just to check my answer and they all matched up perfectly.
Will we see a baseball themed puzzle on Thursday to coincide with opening day? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. Have a marvelous Monday, and I’ll see you tomorrow!
