CARTOON ANSWER: THE ICE CREAM SHOP EMPLOYEES KNEW A LOT BECAUSE THEY HAD THE – – –
DO SNI POE SIC = INSIDE SCOOP
Good Morning, Everyone! 🍦 JUST A MATTER OF TASTE! 🍦
🎶 Oh, everyone likes ICE CREAM, yes indeed they do…Everyone likes ICE CREAM, I do, do you?…Search the whole world over, travel near and far…But everyone likes ICE CREAM, no matter who they are…🎶 “Everyone Likes Ice Cream” – Betty Lou & The Anything Muppets 1975 https://tinyurl.com/ya5darpy
🍦You’ve read it in the papers, you’ve heard it in the news…
That certain Ice Cream vendors have new flavors we may choose.
I’ve heard about the bacon, and as bad as that may seem,
I also heard about goat cheese, yep made into ice cream.
And DITTO for Cilantro, and Curry you can SNIFF…
I don’t know what they’re thinking, but I don’t intend to whiff!
Next we’ll hear ’bout new POWDER that you mix into your milk…
And you’ll be drinking Balsamic Swirl and flavors of that ilk.
I just don’t understand it, and a SICKLE we may need…
To scoop up these concoctions…from some dairy animal feed!
Just give me my Vanilla, throw some Chocolate in the loop…
But all these new exotic tastes? Just keep the INSIDE SCOOP!🍦
We start our weekend off with a Saturday puzzle that SERVED the solution right up. Once again, the descriptive dialogue, combined with the visual clues, made it a puzzle where we can say our Guys definitely DIPPED their hand! Todays’ words are all SWEET Repeats, with a VARIETY of game play. We’ve only seen SICKLE once before, back in 2017, and POWDER appeared twice…as far back as October 2014, and as recently as February 25th of this year. But our two 5-letter words are definitely old FLAVORites…DITTO’s been REPEATED in 6 previous puzzles, first in 2014, and lastly on April 3rd, but it’s SNIFF that failed to come up smelling like roses this morning. Despite having appeared 6 times in the past, it’s both our oldest word, with its debut on April 7th, 2014, and our newest with an appearance this past April 26th. And it also caused the most pause for the Early Bird Jumblers… Those 5 little letters weren’t that SWEET after all…
Our cartoon solution, on the other HAND was easily DISHED OUT. We find ourselves INSIDE an ICE CREAM Shop, where two FRIENDLY employees are GOOD HUMORedly overheard discussing new FLAVORS that are RUMored to be coming. Still being only INSIDE information, Smoke Bacon and Cherry Pie are being mentioned behind the CREAMS, and from the height of the only customer, that tiny little boy, it’s safe to say the word won’t be LEAKING OUT. I doubt the little guy could care a LICK!! Standing on tiptoes, he’s just there for his ICE CREAM, and it’s all he’s CONEcentrating on! And I’m sure there’ll be no BREYERS’ remorse here either! So, in answer to our question…These employees had the…INSIDE SCOOP! Good one, David! TORTE and SWEET!
Ok, eye candy…The Showcase is entirely shaded in blue, so we can’t determine FLAVORS, but we can see that the second tub at front has Chips in it. The employee’s are clad in black and white vertically striped shirts under bright red aprons and TOPPED OFF with red head visors. The green CONE dispenser’s a nice touch, no WAFFLING there. And the SCOOP in our bald guys’ hand is too easily PICKED UP on, so it’s not CHURNING any heads…I think I’ll just go with the CONE being prepared, which looks to be an ORANGE SHERBET…The SERVER’s DIPPING in for a second SCOOP. We got ourselves a DOUBLE header!! So…There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And if you’re anything like me, nothing beats VANILLA, CHOCOLATE and STRAWBERRY…Yes, I definitely have a NAPOLEON complex…🍦🙋🏻
