Happy Wednesday, Jumble geniuses! Our Wednesday solve began with all of the anagrams being in reverse alphabetical order. They were all recycled favorites with LENKT having been used in the past. BBRASO was the only one to require a couple of extra glances to decipher which made it my pick for the most difficult anagram of the day. KNELT was also the oldest clue word of the group and was last used in gameplay on 12/21/17 and scrambled as KTLEN.
The first thing that I noticed about today’s cartoon was the A-frame curb sign that says “Free Checking Today”. The sign lets us know that this building is a bank and it’s where we meet our Jumble characters for today. We see four people on the sidewalk with one of them heading into the building. The two people on the left, identified by their nametags as Scott and Amie, are attempting to drum up business by letting people know about the special being offered by the bank.
There were a a few well placed details within the panel that made it visually interesting. The lines on the door and windows of the bank seem to indicate that the glass is squeaky clean and it gives the building a polished appearance. Scott is holding a stack of papers that I can only assume are flyers or applications for the free checking account. We catch a glimpse of the customer counter within the bank with a pen sticking out of its holder. Missing was the tiny chain that keeps people from walking off with the pen but this bank looks upscale so perhaps they’ve done away with the tacky detail!
The final solve consisted of an 11-letter anagram which is the same amount of letters as Monday and Tuesdays game. The cartoon sentence said “financial institutions” instead of “bank” so it was the only clue I needed for the solve. The -ING ending made bank the required 7-letters leaving ON and IT for the finish. We’ve had three easy puzzles this week so I’m banking on a brain-buster either tomorrow or Friday. It would only make cents! Have a wonderful Wednesday, and I’ll see you right back here tomorrow! 💰
