CARTOON ANSWER: WHEN HE TAUGHT STUDENTS ABOUT THE BRIGHTEST STAR IN THE NIGHT SKY, HE WAS – – –
BRI OSS UTI AUIT = “SIRIUS” ABOUT IT
Good Morning, Everyone! 🌟 “SIRIUS”ly? 🌟
🎶 STARRY, STARRY night…Flaming flowers that brightly blaze, Swirling clouds in violet haze, Reflect in Vincent’s eyes of china blue…Colors changing hue…Morning fields of amber grain, Weathered faces lined in pain …Are soothed beneath the artist’s loving hand…🎶 “Vincent (Starry, Starry Night)” – Don McLean 1972
🌟 Out on a clear, BRISK evening, with the sky afire with light,
We see a group of stars OUTBID each other for what’s bright.
With a teacher who’s not BOSSY, but whose basic curriculum,
Involves being quite serious about what’s dear to him…
It’s obvious he knows his stuff, his actions do ACQUIT,
He wants these kids to know just where a special Star should fit…
So he stands outdoors and looks above, his mettle one of grit…
It comes to Stars, he’s earned his stripes, he’s “SIRIUS” ABOUT IT! 🌟
So, today David seems to have not taken our words too SIRIUSly. Not only are they all Sweet Repeats, they’re repeat Sweet Repeats. We’ve seen each of them more than once in the past, the most recent being BRISK which last appeared on April 7th. And the only word to LIGHTly DOG any of the Early Morning Jumblers today was ACQUIT. OUTBID TRAILed behind, with just one bid…Ok, on to our solution….
Today’s cartoon brings us outdoors under a STAR-LIT Sky. We see a Teacher, with four students, looking up at the clusters of Stars. He’s heard telling them about the Brightest Star, SIRIUS. Being a Star of the Constellation CANIS MAJOR, (Latin for “The Greater DOG“), gives it its’ nickname, “DOG STAR”. And as a little aside, the expression “Dog Days” of Summer, came about from the period when SIRIUS rises in conjunction with the Sun, July 3rd, through August 11th. Now how COOL is that? It’s bright, it’s huge…it’s a SIRIUS Star...and as a result…When our teacher’s talking? He’s “SIRIUS” ABOUT IT! Great pun, David! Once again…you’re our Shining Star!
Ok, eye candy…The SKY is darkened, with SIRIUS and the lesser Stars illuminated. The panel is totally shaded in Gray, it being night. Except for the blackened silhouetted Trees along the background, there’s really nothing to take a SHINE to…So I’ll just go with the young blond boy at left. He’s holding up his Cell Phone, and Jeff’s imposed the Stars themselves upon its’ screen…You GLOW, Jeff! Great deTAIL. What a BRIGHT idea! So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone…And remember…We’re all STARS…CONSTELLATION prize or not! 🌟🙋🏻
