🐷 This Little Piggy went to the Market, and this Little Piggy got snatched,
And after that he ended up where roofs are often thatched…
He went out being NEEDY, to shop a little bit…
And now he’s got his THROAT pierced with this great big Roasting Spit…
A walk along the Koloa’s GULCH, on his cell did he talk…
And now our Piggy’s ready to become Kalua pork!
Just strolling through the WILLOWs, relaxed as he did go…
He never thought he’d end up underground in an imu!
A lesson should be learnt here…cell phone put you in a fog?
Don’t be like this poor Piggy…because now…he WENT WHOLE HOG! 🐷
Today, it’s the 5-letter words that seem to be the SPIT FIRES. We’re seeing a new word in GULCH, and NEEDY, last seen on May 17th, 2017, was the one that caused the Early Morning Jumblers to take a second look. Seeing the letters “ED“, our minds tend to look at them to end a word, and it slowed down the completion time this morning. Our 6-letter words were easily recognizable, with THROAT going back as far as 2016, and WILLOW last appearing this past July.
Ok, now I’m going to SQUEAL on myself. Quickly glancing at today’s cartoon this morning, I settled on a LUAU, and went straight to writing about the Hawaiian tradition of ROASTING A PIG in an underground pit. I looked right at the support poles with the “Y” opening at top to secure the spit over the fire…and yet I still went aHEAD with the IMU method. So, feeling a little GILTy, and not wanting to make a RASHER decision and have it seem as if I was just BACON up the material I offered in my poem, I’ll include this link describing the WHOLE thing. https://tinyurl.com/y7ty7kgb. Truth be told, when I did go back to re-do it, and started looking at the pictures? …Well let’s just say it wasn’t that GReasy on the eyes, and that’s no HOGWASH. I really aBOARed the images. So…Our cartoon today takes us to a PIG ROAST, which we GRILL agree can be anywhere, since I even came across an article that said people were doing it in Brooklyn, NY! We see a Chef and a Sous Chef carrying the HAM of the hour, a WHOLE PIG toward the fire pit. The dialogue between the two Event Planners, is telling us that this “FEAST” will “pull out all the stops“..So, in answer to our question…They: WENT WHOLE-HOG!…WILD done, David! You SHOAT us a good one!
Ok, eye candy. The entire panel’s shaded light green, with black landscaping across the back. Our Chefs are completely dressed in white, wearing gray shoes. Our Pig PORCINES, both holding clipBOARds, are clad in burgundy vests over CRISP white shirts, and have black pants and bow ties to complete their outfits. A bright yellow Banner stands at the left background, reading “BIG PIG ROAST”. Yellow is also used to depict the fire, both in the flaming pit, and atop the two Tiki Torches under the Banner. Three tables are set up, the left one showing a Cornucopia with pineapples, bananas, grapes, and peaches, and the right sitting under a Blue Canopy, and holding a flowing Champagne Fountain, with 7 Flutes beside it. Atop the middle table is what looks to be an Ice Sculpture of a Porpoise. It could be a Watermelon carved sculpture instead, but with droplets seen dripping from the nose and tail of the creature, I’m taking for GRUNTed that it’s ice. Great details Jeff. But three tiny things SWILL do it for me this morning…One is the 5 ear piercings on the Sous Chef, the other is the two extinguisher caps of the Tiki Torches, and the last is the yellow glow illuminated against the gray stones surrounding the fire pit. You can see the fire CRACKLING! So, There you have it, Folks! Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And I wish you a PIECEful day that’s not LARD, or BOARing…but free of any rePORKcussions …🐷🙋🏻
