CARTOON ANSWER:

WHEN NEIL DEGRASSE TYSON EXPLAINS STAR FORMATION, HE DOES A – – –

BLOASREJTL = STELLAR JOB


Happy Wednesday, Jumble fans! All of today’s clue words were old favorites and didn’t give me any problems whatsoever. CRUPES did require a quick second glance before coming into view so it’s my pick for the most difficult anagram of the day. If you’re a regular player of the Jumble you probably noticed that CRUPES looked familiar — and you’d be correct! It was last used on 3/6/18 where it was jumbled the exact same way.

The setting for today’s cartoon appears to be a lecture hall where a presentation is being given. The speaker was immediately recognizable as Neil deGrasse Tyson who is an astrophysicist, author, and science communicator. Mr. Tyson is one of pop culture’s most prominent scientists and speaks about cosmic curiosities in a way that “ordinary people” can understand. By reading the dialogue and sentence we discover that his presentation is focusing on red dwarf stars and the audience looks mesmerized by the facts that they are hearing.

The letter layout for the final solution was very impressive and I wouldn’t be surprised if it managed to stump some of you for a while. Knowing that Mr. Tyson presents scientific information in a manner which is easy to understand had me thinking that WORK or JOB would be somewhere in the solution. Sure enough, JOB jumped out at me leaving STELLAR to be found after a few quick self-jumbles of the remaining letters. Have a wonderful Wednesday, and I’ll see you tomorrow!
