CARTOON ANSWER: THE TRENDY YOUNG HULA DANCER WAS A – – –

SH RE P IT – HIPSTER

Good Morning, Everyone!      👣I GOT THE HIPPY HIPPY SHAKES 👣

🎶 For goodness sakes, I got the HIPPY HIPPY shakes…Yeah, I got the shakes…I got the HIPPY HIPPY shakes. Ooh, I can’t sit still…With the HIPPY HIPPY shakes.. Well, now you shake it to the left, you shake it to the right…You do the HIPPY shake shake…With all your might. Oh Baby…Yeah, come on and shake…Aw, it’s in the bag…Oh, the HIPPY HIPPY shake, oh yeah…🎶

👙👣She’s visiting Hawaii, she figures push come SHOVE
She’d like to get the most of it, and do the things she loves…
She’s always enjoyed dancing, it’s rhythm and the RHYME,
So she thought she’d try hula…she’d definitely make the time.
But one of the instructors, ABRUPT and quite annoyed,
Told her that body movement wasn’t something to avoid.
“You really can’t do hula, if your body stays INTACT,
You need to loosen up and move your arms and hips and back”
But she felt she could do it, with the coffee to her lips…ER…
I think a rude awakening will sway this city HIPSTER! 👣👙

Our words today…All old favorites, but with a definite new SPIN. I think perhaps of all four, RHYME may SHAKE you up a bit. Today, our cartoon brings us to the shores of HAWAII. We see a trendy city woman, attending a HULA dance class. With her steaming coffee in hand, and cell phone loosely placed in her pocket, the instructor is asking her…”So, HAWAII you here? You’re not dressed properly, your hands aren’t free, and I’m getting the impression that your idea of grass is different from mine.. Just HULA you think you are…” Oh POI! She’s not HULAing around, is she? Talk about Urban reBOOal! So our question asks…What was the City Kicker, looking to learn the HULA? Solution? She was a HIPSTER! Well, What do you SWAY? Good one, David! A real HAWAIIAN PUNCHline! Ok, eye candy…Palm trees, leis, HULA dancers...We’ve SCENE it before, so I don’t care ATOLL…Let’s go with our City Kickers’ plaid skirt and boots...Good REEF! Y-ORCHIDDING me, right? So, There you have it, Folks! Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And ISLE be seeing you…👣👙🙋🏻

CARTOON ANSWER:  IN THE LATE ’70s, PAUL DAVID HEWSON STARTED

GOING BY BONO AND – – –

INF DA SHA AE MME MLE = MADE A NAME (for) HIMSELF

Good Morning, Everyone!             🎶 NAME THAT TUNE….SMITH! 🎶

🎶I have climbed the highest mountains…I have run through the fields, Only to be with you…Only to be with you…I have kissed honey lips, Felt the healing in the fingertips….It burned like fire….This burning desire…But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for…But I still haven’t found…what I’m looking for…🎶

🎶 The SHADOW of those SUMMER nights with U2 playing soft…
The sound of Bono’s dulcet voice that takes ones heart aloft.
A fan of both the band and he there never was DISMAY
While listening throughout the years to what they had to say…
And besides the great music, Bono works for the INFLOW
Of money for the charities that he has come to know…
Philanthropy he’s noted for, he’s ACTIVE and he’s kind,
So many causes he has helped, you need him, you will find.
He’ll use his social MUSCLE..go above and go beyond
Which is the reason many of us of him, have grown fond.
For so very long I’ve been a fan, his music’s on my shelf…
And Bono has o’er all these years MADE A NAME FOR HIMSELF! 🎶

Today’s words. What can we say? I think INFLOW may cause a few eye rolls…Not only being a compound word, which sometimes causes a tic or two, but it’s also not a commonly known word. And then we have ACTIVE. Definitely a common word, but David’s anagram is exceptionally good. MUSCLE? Muscling in? And maybe, to your DISMAY…Well, enough said! Let me know your thoughts…So, our cartoon and solution. We seem to be at a recording studio, in 1976, the dialogue telling us that BONO is announcing his new name. He settled on Bono, after going by a series of other nicknames. The first? Are your ready for this? Here goes: “Steinhegvanhuysenolegbangbangbang“…! No, I’m not kidding, and Yes, you heard it right! Boy, that would have played out well on a marquee, huh? Anyway, there’s plenty of information on line about both Bono, and his band, U2, for anyone who’d like to learn a little more. The dialogue goes on to show the other band members making a few remarks. (And since I’m going with the year being 1976 here, I may be wrong with the names, but Jeff can always correct me if I am). The line spoken by Dik Evans, about Cher is funny, since she was still using Bono as her last name at the time. Nice touch, Jeff. The Edge (Dave Evans), is the man speaking of wearing a cap, and in the foreground, is Larry Mullen, the drummer. Our question, paraphrased, asks…After Paul changed his name, he started to…MAKE A NAME for HIMSELF! I love it! Very clever, David, well done! ..And Jeff? U2! Great caricatures! In fact, I’m just going to give you the Eye Candy Award today…the whole panel is a keeper! (Although, if that is Bono’s navel I think I see? Well, Jeff…There goes my 🎶VERTIGO🎶)! And since the band is embarking on their EXPERIENCE + INNOCENCE TOUR, I’d say your usual 🎶MYSTERIOUS WAYS🎶 aren’t so mysterious this time around! So, There you have it Folks, Done. And I wish you all a really 🎶BEAUTIFUL DAY🎶…🎶🙋🏻

CARTOON ANSWER: THE OIL COMPANY WAS BEHIND SCHEDULE BECAUSE

OF TOO MANY PROJECTS – – –

IPPNIHINELETE = IN THE PIPELINE

Good Morning, Everyone!             ⛽️ PIPE DREAMS ⛽️

🎶At 5 in the morning, I get outta bed…They fork up the coffee, to clear my head…Go down to the kitchen to get some chow, The foreman says…”WELL we gotta leave now”…I got my safety glasses, hard hat and safety shoes…I got those every day, working on the PIPELINE blues….🎶

⛽️ You can look and see the money kind of showing on his face,
And the Oil Man is telling Joe to just pick up the pace.
Like the bottom of the NINTH here, there is no time to lose..
And INVERTing pipe and laying it is what the men did choose.
Called the HIPPO Oil Company because it’s large and mean…
A hippos got a barrel shape and barrels are their dream…
But to do it to the LETTER, means you gotta’ do it right,
And the projects start to pile up…an Oil Man’s worst plight.
But the greed and the ambition and the “gimme all that’s mine”…
O’er a barrel put our Oil Man, cause it’s all….IN THE PIPELINE!⛽️

OIL I know is, today’s anagrams are TOP NOTCH! Not hard, not CRUDE, but scrambled up just enough to make them PROJECT a little extra thought or two. *Thirteen LETTERS* can LAY anyone out! But if you write our LETTERs out in a LINE, WELL, they won’t have you over a BARREL! And that brings us to our cartoon. Today, we’re out at a construction SITE, where we see an OIL tycoon, MARK ITUP, telling his foreman, Joe, that the work on LAYING PIPELINES at this SITE needs to be wrapped up. There are other jobs that will need OIL his attention. Joe knows! And he’s trying his best…But there’s just too many PROJECTS…There’a a phrase that means “awaiting completion or processing; being developed“. That phrase is..IN THE PIPELINE. And our question is stating that the company is way behind schedule. And the only solution? Oh Wait..That IS the solution! To the puzzle at least..As far as the OIL PROJECT backlog goes?…WELL, that’s not our problem now, is it? Nope! Our job was just to solve this puzzle, and we have! So let’s look for eye candy…MARK ITUP has a nice bushy mustache, but I’m not paying any LIP service to it…I’ll just go with the OIL WELL icons on his 10 GALLON hat and his Bolo tie. They’re not great, but they’re OIL right. So, There you have it, Folks! Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And remember...OILS WELL that ends WELL! ⛽️🙋🏻

** CORRECTION: My Email went out early this morning reading *Fifteen consonants*. I have no idea what I may have been thinking. There aren’t even fifteen letters! I do way too much juggling! I’ve corrected it, and I apologize to any of you who may still be counting…! 😳🙋🏻

ZECIRO – COZIER

CARTOON ANSWER: HER CAT SLEPT ON HER SWEATER, AND NOW IT WAS – – 

AFESWRWRUOER = WORSE “FUR” WEAR

Good Morning, Everyone!       🐱 HAIR Today, Gone Tomorrow?…🐱

🎶 Baby, baby, WEAR did our love go? And all your promises of a love forevermore?…I’ve got this burning, burning, yearning feelin’ inside me…Ooh, deep inside me, and it hurts so bad…🎶

🐱 The cat tried to get COZIER though this could be a GAFFE
And maybe he should just have stayed on the couch’s other half.
But he was in the middle there…where the sweater she had left
And now our girl takes just one look and she’s feeling bereft…
She’d SWORN to be more careful, and put her clothes away,
But here we see forgetfulness is causing her to say…
“My outfit’s ruined, now how am I supposed to look so chic…
And this was the last sweater at the new WALRUS Boutique!
I’ll need to find another look, this sweater’s full of hair…
It just won’t do, cause like my couch, now its just WORSE “FUR” WEAR”! 🐱

Looking at today’s words, I’ve a strong feeling that GAFFE may cause a little head SCRATCHING. And COZIER some discomfort. Having recently used Gaffe in a story I’m working on, it caused me no PAWS, but it’s not an everyday word. And Cozier has that Zero thing going on…Nothing that couldn’t be solved, but again, perhaps a PAWS. Ok, let’s get to our cartoon, and see if we can SHED some light on today’s solution. Oh no! A CAT?…Not again! PAW Jeff...We see our girl, KAT, and she’s lamenting the loss of her new mauve sweater, with the PURRple trim. Her CAT, NIP, finding the sweater just lying around, decided it was the PURRfect place to fall asleep. But nothing could be WORSE. The sweater’s now full of FURry hair, and it’s ruined. And you know who’s the PURRpatrator! But, we see NIP just looking up, probably thinking…”WAUL it is FURniture, right? LITTERally? So I just found the ideal PAWSition and fell asleep…It was this or the carPET“. Whatever. All we know is that now, one of KAT’s newest PAWsessions is ruined…And our question asks…What’s the sweater now? WORSE “FUR” WEAR! WAUL, PAW KAT a NIP, and put it on David’s TAB..BY cause we’re done! Good one, Dave! So, eye candy. We have the SCRATCHING POST. And we can see the LITTER BOX in the other room, through the archway…But no, I don’t find either of them FURmidable. I’m going with the look on NIP’s face…What a PUSS! So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And keep in mind that it’s a good practice to hang up your clothes…Just beCLAWS…🐱🙋🏻

CARTOON ANSWER: AFTER SEEING THAT HIS HOUSEBOAT HAD BEEN

WRECKED IN THE STORM, HIS – – – 

SNTHRAKEA = HEART SANK

Good Morning, Everyone!       💔🛳 HEART….WAKE? 🛳💔n

🎶 Don’t know why…There’s no sun up in the sky, STORMY WEATHER…Since my man and I ain’t together, keeps rainin’ all the time. Can’t go on…Everything I had is gone...STORMY WEATHER…Since my man and I ain’t together…Keeps rainin’ all the time…Life is bare, gloom and misery everywhere…STORMY WEATHER...Just can’t get my poor self together…I’m weary all the time…Keeps rainin’ all the time….🎶

🛳 He’s not CRANKY, he’s heart broken as he tried with all his might
To keep composure steady, as his heart strings pulled so TIGHT
And he watched as his boat sank and he teared up with a SNIFF,
As the memories were taken…replace them? Yea, as if…
His kids when they were Little LEAGUE and then when they were grown,
He saw his photos disappear and this he now bemoaned…
The storm had done such damage, now the water dark and dank
Just wiped away a lifetime and he watched as his HEART SANK…🛳

Today’s words can be filed UNDER been there, done that. Easily written DOWN, we’re ready to move on to our cartoon. Sadly today, what we SEA is not a happy sight. There’ll be no solution to this guys problem, even though our solution to the puzzle is easily SEAn. There’s been a STORM, and we SEA that’s it’s WRECKED havoc. Standing on a dock, watching his beloved houseboat SINK, we see a man and a woman. The diaLOG is telling us that the man has lost all his memories which were kept on the boat. Unfortunately, his WATERSHED moment is taking place right before his eyes. He stands there, hat in hand, crestFALLEN, as his arm crosses his broken HEART. Our question states that after seeing this, his…HEART SANK. What can I say about this puzzle? This SHIP has SAILED…Eye candy? There’s a lot of BLUE….and ironically, Jeff hasn’t given us his beloved SINKING sailboat today. Instead out on the horizon, we see a red-sailed boat, with three people aboard. They’ve WEATHERED the STORM…So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day Everyone! And I wish you all smooth SAILING….🛳🙋🏻

ERTHEASTNWSDO = SHORT AND SWEET 

Good Morning Everyone!          🍭 HOW SWEET IT IS 🍭

🎶 Who can take a sunrise (who can take a sunrise), Sprinkle it with dew (sprinkle it with dew), Cover it with choc’late and a miracle or two…The CANDY MAN (the CANDY MAN), Oh, the CANDY MAN can (the CANDY MAN can). The CANDY MAN can, Cause he mixes it with love, and makes the world taste good (makes the world taste good)🎶

🍭 Here are our words and solution for today. Don’t fill up on candy…

I’ll be back…”TOOT SWEET”! 🍭

🍭 Although the hair is colored blonde, I knew who it would be
And looking closer at her shirt…just as I thought “Lucy”
The famous episode, where she and Ethel get a job
And chocolates ERUPT on the belt as they just grab and lob…
Now WISDOM needn’t tell us, HEAVY hints are what we see,
This family is visiting a Candy Factory…
The Fathers disillusioned, he thought that there’d be more
He’s thinking this is nothing more than going to a store…
But kids have different outlooks, their views on candy STRONG
They wanted this, no matter what…or how the lines were long…
So happy as the children are, I think that Dad might tweet
And tell his friends…”Not worth the wait…the place is SHORT AND SWEET! 🍭

How SWEET are our words today? Easy, breezy, REESE’S PIECEzy! So, on to our cartoon. Today we’re visiting a CANDY FACTORY, maybe somewhere on FIFTH AVENUE, and Jeff’s graphic gives us plenty to sink our teeth into! We see the host, dressed as a red and white PEPPERMINT CANDY MAN, complete with his HARD hat. Nice TWIST. He’s telling his audience, the GOODBARS, family of four, that the company was started because the owner loved candy. But since the Father, MR GOODBAR, MINT GOODBAR, is saying he thought there’d be “more” to the Factory’s story, it takes a big BITE out of the solution. We’re surrounded by Sweet Candy, the story is Short…It’s SHORT AND SWEET! HOT TAMALE! How SWEET is that? Ok, the eye CANDY! I’ve already mentioned Lucy and Ethel, and Jeff has embroidered their names on their shirts. They’re desperately trying to gain control of those chocolates. I go to PIECES every time I see that I Love Lucy episode! Just be TWIX you and I, I must have at least 50 views under my BELT! We see another worker, SCOOPing candy into a rotating machine. On the wall, is a photo of a Teddy Bear, a Candy Cane and a piece of Candy. Now, we come to our family. I guess it’s a BIT of a ROCKY ROAD for the Dad, he probably paid like 100 GRAND to get them all in, and it’s NUT thing like he expected. He’s thinking, “What WHOPPERS the ads for this place were”. The Mom, KIT KAT, seems to be taking it a lot BUTTER. FINGERS pointed upward, she seems pleased, U-NO? And now, the kids. BABY RUTH and JUNIOR MINT. Look at the JOY on that girls face! And why NUT? Her and her brother are looking at MOUNDS and MOUNDS of candy! And they’re free to go FISHing! She’s grabbing handfuls of those …WHAT-CHA-MA-CALL-ITs? Oh, right GUMMI BEARS, and he’s sucking on a CANDY CANE. He may need to take a FAST BREAK though, because it looks like he’s got STAR BURSTS in his eyes…Maybe he SKORed a little too much? Or maybe it’s because the Candy Canes are colored blue? Don’t SNICKER, they are! Anyway, I have to CHEWS, because it’s CRUNCH time. Almost AFTER EIGHT.! ..I’ll go with MR GOODBAR. Even though this was no PAYDAY for him…he’s still a SWEETHEART for putting up with it all! So, There you have it , Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And remember, there are so many RIESENS to be happy…TAKE 5 today, and just enJOY! 🍭🙋🏻

Good Morning, Everyone!     🙄 BECAUSE, SIGH…DON’T WANT TO…🙄

🎶Strollin’ with the one girl, SIGHINSIGH after SIGH…Nice work if you can get it, and you can get it if you try…🎶

🙄 So looking at our cartoon, we see a family here,
Two young boys and their Mother, and a Father in his chair.
He thought that he’d relax today, but seems his wife thinks other
It’s garden work for everyone, the boys hear from their Mother.
So BUCKLE down they both must do, perhaps she’ll pay them HOURLY?
Or maybe not, “Mood INDIGO” seems the song playing sourly…
They’d rather not make RADISH plots and pull the yard of weeds,
They wanted to play video games like SPLASH and Frenzy Feed…
But I think these two brothers’ LARGER wishes go denied…
And that’s why we see them upset, and see them “SIGHED”-BY-“SIGHED“! 🙄

I think my poem may lack sparkle today, but our words surely don’t. I’m sure David’s PULLED them from his hat before, but these anagrams just shine. My choice for the two that caused the most SIGHS? RADISH and LARGER. I saw Regale and something beginning with SH. But I blinked and they came SPROUTING out. Our cartoon: Today we see a family of four, Mother, Father and two young sons. The Father, wanting to simply LILAC in his recliner has just found out that he’s about to be UPROOTED from his reverie, and called to garden duty. His TULIPS are telling us that he’s not thrilled. The sons, STANDING TOGETHER, SIDE by SIDE, upon  hearing the news, cry out in unison…”But we thought WEED just hang out”. Hmm. This is not a ROSY situation. So, BLOOM do we think will win out here? It remains to be SEED. But our question is asking…How did the siblings express their displeasure? See those sLUMPing shoulders? See the looks of “HOE NO” on their faces? They…”SIGHED” BY SIGHED“! Well PANSY that! Good one, David, you old RAKE! (I know you really aren’t, but this IS a gardening puzzle…SOW let’s make beLEAF it’s a compleMINT ok)? A little hint here before we look for eye candy…If the SIDE BY SIDE pun didn’t come to you ASTER looking at the cartoon, and you wrote OUT the letters, SOIL you need to do, is PULL OUT BY, and then split up the double letters into two ROWS…I think today, the cartoon did give us a LARGER hint than usual. Ok, the candy…Not MULCH to see today…The only thing I’m getting a READ on is the newspaper in the Fathers hands…Let’s DIG IN…It has the Jumble with The Family CROCUS, oh, typo…Circus below it. It has a Boggle Brain Busters in the next ROW OVER. Two down from that is Ziggy. The FRAME in the middle, is showing a man with SPIKEd hair, wearing glasses. I have no idea who he is..ORCHID you not. Maybe someone can take STOCK, DIG into it, and let me know. As for the eye candy, I’m looking at the boys hands. Has anyone else besides me noticed that every time we see someone standing with their arms down, the hands are always shown with the fingers pointed backwards and up? That’s my candy today…I’m POSEYing a question.  Jeff…What’s the DIRT on that? So, There you have it, Folks, Done. It’s 6AM here in NYC.

SHE INVESTED IN THE PIZZA PARLOR BECAUSE SHE WANTED A – –

COAPOFCIEINET – PIECE OF THE ACTION

Good Morning, Everyone!             🍕PIECE…AND TRY IT? 🍕

🎶(Take it)…Take another little PIZZA my heart, now Baby…(Break it), break another little bit of my heart, now Honey..(Have a)..have another little PIZZA my heart now, Baby….You know you’ve got it if it makes you feel good…

🍕 There’s nothing quite like pizza, especially in New York
Synonymous with who we are, just like the way we “tawk”.
Where some will look for COOKIEs, and others long for cake,
I’ll choose a pizza anytime…parlor or one I’ll make.
People from babes to NINETY cannot resist it’s lure…
And pizza parlors in NY are counted by the score.
The PROOF of a successful place is where the crowds you’ll see
Wrapped ’round the block like CONGA lines, abreast by two or three.
I don’t think I could say enough ’bout pizzas satisfaction…
I would invest just like our girl for a PIECE OF THE ACTION! 🍕

Looking at today’s words, I kept thinking about…how hungry I was! What can I say? I hear the word PIZZA and I become like one of Pavlov’s dogs…I could eat PIZZA every day, during any SEASON. As for the words themselves, despite being all old favorites, the anagrams are just enough of a challenge to whet any APPETITE. Ok, let’s see what our cartoon enFOLDS…Today Jeff places us at a PIZZA PARLOR, where we see three men and a woman. The dialogue tells us that the woman has recently invested in the place, and as she’s eating a SLICE of the PIE, she’s voicing her happiness over her decision. The proPIEetor, looking a little too CHEESY for my TASTE, is seen telling her he’s glad she now has a SLICE of the PIE; which with our question, was my first thought. PIE..Piece of the PIE. But, the INGREDIENTS just weren’t there. Two “C”s, one “P” just aren’t CUTTING it…But noticing the male patron standing there COOLING his heels, with money in his hands, and the word “invested” in our dialogue, TOSSED a new thought my way…, and I took a GAMBLE…She wanted a ….PIECE OF THE ACTION! Good one, David..I BET you thought we WOODn’t see that coming! Ok, eye candy…Glancing aROUND again, trying to see what I can TAKE OUT of the cartoon, I’m ROLLING my eyes at the proPIEetor. I mean, I’m no SQUARE, but between his long ombré beard being held with a band at the BOTTOM, and a very long earring STRETCHing down, well…KNEAD I go on? There seems to be MUSHROOM for improvement here…PERSONALly, I never SAUSAGE a look in a PIZZA place…It just seems to SERVE up an unSAVORY image. There’s the worker, seen SLICING up a new PIE. Wearing a hair net, and sporting a soul patch, he has his tongue hanging from the side of his mouth, and his ear is gauged with a ROUND plug. Didn’t they go out of style, DOUGH? Ear today, gone TOMATO? I think I’m just going to go with the only thing I can really get a HANDLE on today…Next to the him? Leaning against the counter? The HANDLE of the PEEL? (A flat, shovel-like implement, used for carrying PIZZA in and out of an OVEN). It’s the only thing that really aPEELs to me today…So, There you HALVE it , Folks! DONE. Have a GRATE day, Everyone! And remember…No matter how you SLICE it, in life there may always be someone trying to sTOP you from being yourself. Don’t be fOILed! ..The important thing is to consider the SAUCE. 🍕🙋🏻
