THE MOVIE SET IN THE PIZZA PARLOR SHOWED A – – –
SCFILEFIOLE = SLICE OF LIFE
Happy Tuesday, everyone! There weren’t any new clue words in today’s puzzle, but all of the anagrams were new. IGLOO has given me problems in the past, but it was instantly visible for some reason this morning. The peskiest of the pack ended up being DEFIED due to the double D’s and E’s. David decided to group all of the B’s together in BOBBLE but it too was instantly visible. SCOFF ended up being our oldest clue word with its last appearance on 6/11/15 and jumbled as FOCFS. Once solved, all of our clue words were in reverse alphabetical order.
Today’s cartoon brings us to an unamed pizza parlor where a scene for a movie is being filmed. We see a director in the rear of the panel that is coaching the actors on how to say their lines in an effort to give the scene an “everyday” feel. I wasn’t particularly impressed by the dialogue in the panel and thought that the flow was off by having both of the characters say “for me”.
The drawing itself was superb and contained quite a few extra details when compared to yesterday’s panel. The microphone dangling over the counter and the lighting panel on the wall lets us know that this is a big-budget production. The actor on the left is dressed in streetwear while Sal can be seen wearing an apron. The pizzas in the display case looked delicious with one pie being pepperoni and the other appearing to be mushroom and onion. My favorite detail overall was the cameraman filming the action. He has his hat on backwards so he can get a super close look into the camera and perfectly capture the scene taking place.
The final solve consisted of an 11-letter anagram with SLICE being instantly visible due to the visual clue in the cartoon. OF was the obvious two letter word leaving LIFE to be found in the remaining letters. Be sure to cast your vote down below for the word that gave you the most trouble and be sure to check back tomorrow to see the results. Have a terrific Tuesday, and I’ll see you tomorrow! 🍕
