CARTOON ANSWER: AFTER A STRING OF BAD PERFORMANCES, THE TRAPEZE ARTIST’S FUTURE – – –
EUE TH CLG ABA NN HIN = HUNG IN THE BALANCE
Good Morning, Everyone! 🎪 CHECKS?…AND BALANCES? 🎪
🎶 He’d fly through the air with the greatest of ease…A DARING YOUNG MAN ON THE FLYING TRAPEZE…His movements were graceful, all girls he could please…And my love he purloined away. This young man by name was Signor Bona Slang…Tall, big, and handsome as well made as Chang…Where’er he appeared the Hall loudly rang, with ovations from all people there…🎶 “The Daring Young Man On The Flying Trapeze” – Eddie Cantor (circa) 1936-1946)
🎪 I think I’d EQUATE Trapeze work with boarding SUNKEN ships,
I’d have to have the CLERGY there to watch should I do flips.
My Vertigo would HINDER me, so if up there I’d be?
The reason would be baffling…a losing bet maybe?
I picture an AMOEBA, splattered along the floor,
There’s no remote thought comes to mind, and trust me, I am sure…
Forget the bet, I wouldn’t dare, and save the TROPHY too,
I like to swing, but not this way…you won’t see me persue.
In life we all have qualities, but of my any talents?
Nothing comes close to this right here: Oh, no…HUNG IN THE BALANCE! 🎪
What an eclectic group of words we’re seeing this morning. All Sweet Repeats, and I really think their previous anagrams were much more challenging than these, because I SWUNG through these…🎶with the greatest of ease...🎶!..And none of the Early Bird Jumblers found any of our words to be too IN TENTS, except maybe for AMOEBA. One of them did find it just a tad bit STICKY… And I did come ACROSS one little quirk, with CLERGY. It was anagrammed exactly as it is today, back on August 28th. The rest of our words? A mix between 2017-18, with AMOEBA bringing up the rear from July 22nd of 2016. Ok, enough time spent here…Let’s get on the the MAIN ATTRACTION!
Today, we find ourselves at the BIG TOP. I’d be LION if I tried to tell you where we are exactly, since CIRCUS to me was always Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey…but as we all know, they FELL through the cracks last year. So, let’s just say we’re looking at the Jumbler Tumblers. It has a nice RING to it, no? Standing CENTER RING we find a RINGMASTER and a performer who I believe to be a TIGHTROPE WALKER, since she’s seen holding a BALANCE BAR. The conversation is CENTERed on the fate of the male TRAPEZE ARTIST that we see FLYING overhead, with his female partner. It seems that his PERFORMANCE hasn’t been UP to par, and he’s just NET SWINGING it. It looks like his job may be UP IN THE AIR, unless he gets his ACT TOGETHER. It’s not an easy POSITION to be in, and he may end up being the FALL GUY…Anyway, with our question asking where his future was after all these SHORTcomings? It HUNG IN THE BALANCE! Good one, David! You’ve definitely GRABbed my attention!
Ok, eye candy…The panel is shaded in light Blue. The RINGMASTER, clad in the requisite Tuxedo and Top Hat, is scowling…You can see he’s definitely not CLOWNing around. Our Prima Little Schemer, clad in Purple, is shown smiling, gloating over the fact that, as she puts it..”You never see me falling”…Obviously, she’d never lend A HAND…Beyond them we can see the NET. But the Eye CATCHER today? Our TRAPEZE guy…With his tongue HANGING out? Take a real close look…He’s not gonna CATCHER this time either..🎶.A NETter one bites the dust🎶! So, There you have it, Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone..and remember…It may be fun being a TRAPEZE ARTIST…until you’re LET GO! 🎪🙋🏻
