💳 Identity theft runs rampant, HARDLY anyone’s been spared…
Even charging at the GROCER, you sometimes should be scared.
So many thieves abounding, they PRANCE from con to con,
They work a scheme and then UPROOT…next thing you know they’re gone.
Where before they worked in SHADOW, today they’re bold at will..
And have devised elaborate ploys, while hiding ‘hind a GRILLE…
While our accounts are dwindling…with them they’re quite enlarged,
We need a better way to prove these guys GUILTY AS CHARGED 💳
“G”…Today it appears we have two new words to add to our Jumble list: GROCER and GRILLE. Our other four have all been around, REPEATED throughout the years. And once again, our oldest is also our newest: SHADOW. Dating back to May 7th, 2014, it last appeared on April 29th, 2018. And the one I DUG up the most times, was UPROOT, which SPRUNG UP six times over the past five years. I guess this is a game of NUMBERS too! And the only word this morning that caused the Early Birds any HOLD UP, was GROCER…They just weren’t buying it!
Our cartoon today places us inside a Courtroom. We see a Judge about to sentence a CREDIT CARD THIEF for SWIPING Credit Cards and going on Shopping Sprees. We see his Lawyer, seemingly stunned by the Judges’ verdict…I guess he thought he was going to CASH in on this one. And we hear our culprit claiming his innocence, telling the Judge, “I was framed“! What a CARD, right? And what’s really INTERESTing is that not only is there a framed photo of him with a CARD in his hand, CHARGING at a CHECK out, there’s also photos of other cards with forged signatures…Let’s face it…for this guy, it’s a PHOTO FINISH! So in answer to our question…The thief was…GUILTY AS CHARGED! Good play on words, David! I give you CREDIT!
Ok, eye candy. I’m really surprised that the Lawyer, decked out in a brown SUIT, is looking so shocked. Maybe he should have worked a little harder on his DISCOVERy….The panel itself, as usual, is a MASTERful job, especially with the forged signatures…The top CARD, which shows a CHIP, reads Jeff Knurek, the middle one David Hoyt, but the bottom one I can’t IDENTIFY…except for it beginning with the letter K. Our Judge, seen holding the indictment papers, VIS-A vis the Guilty CHARGE, with a Gavel at her side, looks stylish in her robe, despite having STEAL gray hair. And her desk nicely displays an emblem of the Scales of JUSTICE. The Easel with the photographic EVIDENCE stands beside it. But I think I’ll go with our THIEF. Sporting a short-sleeved powder blue shirt and black pants, his TIE is a black and red striped NUMBER. But if you look real closely, you’ll NOTICE that it’s a CLIP ON! Yep, you can actually see where it’s INSERTED under the COLLAR! So, There you have it, Folks! Done…Have a great day, Everyone! And I’ll leave you with this SENTENCE…If you think CREDIT Crunch is a Cereal, you really need to CHECK yourself…because you’re definitely getting MILKED! BUY, BUY!! 💳🙋🏻
