NOJRIU = JUNIOR
THE LAWYERS IN THE COURTROOM WERE – – –
GEEGBDDNJUI = BEING JUDGED
Happy Monday, Jumble friends! Today’s puzzle offered up a brand clue word in GABBY while all of the others were old favorites. None of them gave me any trouble and I was able to breeze right through them at first glance. HIDDEN was the oldest of the group and was scrambled as DINDHE the last time we saw it on 4/2/17. And finally, ESEGE is the same anagram we had last time for GEESE when it was in gameplay on 4/10/18.
Our cartoon this morning brings us into a courtroom where we encounter three Jumble characters. The first thing that I noticed was that the judge looked rather unhappy and he can be seen pointing his right index finger at both of the attorneys. The dialogue informs us that these two counselors have made some type of error and the judge is calling them out on it. He even went so far as to question if they’ve passed the bar exam which leaves them both with their mouths wide open and panicked looks upon their faces.
There were only a couple of extra details in the panel that caught my attention with most of the visual appeal of the cartoon relying heavily upon the features of the characters. We see the judge seated in an oversized chair behind his bench with his gavel close at hand. On the bench is an emblem featuring the scales of justice with the left bowl being slightly larger than the right. This small detail was my favorite as it gave the cartoon a sense of dimension since it was drawn at an angle.
The final solution consisted of an 11-letter anagram which solved into two words. The cartoon sentence was the shortest that we’ve had in quite awhile and contained only six words. Noticing the JU together in the layout brought JUDGE instantly to mind leaving BEING to be found next with the -ED ending to finish it all off. It was an easy way to start the week and I’ll see you all right back here for tomorrow’s puzzle! ⚖️
