Happy Monday, everyone! David and Jeff offered up a simple puzzle to start off our week of Jumble duties. I’m sure it was a much needed respite for those players who had a difficult time with the envelope pushing surprise answers that we saw during the final days of Guest Jumbler Week.
All of today’s clue words were familiar favorites with GITEN being the only repeat anagram. They were all instantly visible upon first glance so I’ll leave a poll down below where you you can pick the stumper of the day. The oldest word in the pack was VINYL and it was last used on 6/4/16 and scrambled as YILVN. After solving all of the words, they were in reverse alphabetical order.
With Guest Jumbler Week #6 in the books, it’s time to welcome back our familiar cast of characters that we know and love. In today’s panel we see two women having a conversation in a dressing room. The woman on the left has a surprised look on her face as she observes the luxurious surroundings of her friend. The woman on the right is described by the cartoon sentence as a “conceited actress” which explains the over abundance of mirrors.
My eyes were instantly drawn to the large tri-fold mirror sitting upon a small table. Upon it is a hand mirror as well as another picture frame mirror. I was surprised that the table didn’t have any drawers for hair brushes or accessories. Since we’re only getting a small glimpse of the room, I’m sure there are other areas where those items are kept. There is a portrait of the actress in an ornate frame hanging on the wall which was a bit creepy to see. My favorite detail within the cartoon was the bust of her face on a pedestal. It has the same pointy nose as the actress as well as a stiff botox injected upper lip!
The layout for the final solution was a 6-letter anagram. VANITY jumped out at me instantly making this one an quick solve. I’m sure we’ll have some challenging puzzles later this week and maybe even a Thanksgiving themed cartoon on Thursday. Have a marvelous Monday, and I’ll see you tomorrow!
