Jumble Answers for 01/07/2019









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! βš–οΈ

  1. 🎢 You can’t JUDGE an apple by looking at a tree…You can’t JUDGE honey by looking at the bee…You can’t JUDGE a daughter by looking at the mother…You can’t JUDGE a book by looking at the cover…🎢 “You Can’t Judge A Book By The Cover” – Bo Diddley 1962 https://tinyurl.com/y8os9a99

    βš– The Judge is losing patience, no longer is it HIDDEN,
    He’s telling these two Lawyers that they really must be kiddin’…
    These antics like some silly GEESE…he wants it stopped right now…
    Behaving like two JUNIOR clerks…this judge will not kowtow.
    The talking so excessive, he’s not fond of GABBY folks,
    And now he has to draw the line when hearing them tell jokes…
    He tried remaining partial, tried hard to not begrudge,
    But the laughing was the last straw, and now they’re BEING JUDGED…βš–

    Easy, breezy…Have a great day, Everyone! βš–πŸ™‹πŸ»


  2. Good morning. First off,glad to have two of the three amigos back. I was wondering where you went because I was curious how your bees were doing and did you get any honey out of all your work. Your girl Friday did a heck of a job for you as you can see from her quick poetic post today so as not to take the limelight of your return away. Glad to have you both back. All things will be right in the world when the third Amigo is back in the fold. Thanks guys for all you do everyday. As Mike already said today’s jumble was easy breezy. And why not.! Look what day it is today. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Hi, Paul! Glad to be back after some time off and I know Angela had everything well under control. The bees did better than we expected but we only took two frames of their hard work for ourselves. The total amount was approximately 4 pounds after we purified it. We also melted some of the wax, poured it into molds, and then made Christmas ornaments out of it β€” they were a hit!
      We bundled up the hive with insulation so hopefully they’ll make it through the cold this winter. Have a great start to your week! πŸ™‚


      • Thanks Mike for some interesting information. Nice idea using the wax. Now now Angela, you do know what the reference to gal Friday means. You’re the glue that holds everything together. The spoon that stirs the pot. The Ying to his Yang. Need I go on.?


  3. Agree love all the Geico commercials. Puzzles were easy as usual for a Monday.Living in Illinois,my friends were grieving over the tough Bears loss yesterday.Guess they’ll be looking for a new kicker.

    • Here’s another poem for you, Chuck.
      β€œNick Foles must have sold his soul
      To make the kicker uptight.
      How else could he ever hit
      The crossbar *AND* the upright?” πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

  5. The high school JUNIOR found his GEESE HIDDEN behind the shed of the GABBY neighbors. Good to have you back, Mike! Kudos to Angela for the great job she did and is doing! Lest we forget, tomorrow would have been Elvis Presley’s 84th birthday..

    • Hi Chuck..Thanks for the Shout Out. Appreciated.😘 And Kudos to you. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» Very well done! I never considered Junior as a high school student. Would have afforded me another outlet. I wrote these for you in case you stopped by today. Have a good one! βš–πŸ™‹πŸ»

      Β°JUNIOR brought home two GEESE, named GABBY and Tabby, but he kept them HIDDEN from his parents…

      Β° Trying to remain HIDDEN became a problem, since the JUNIOR member of the group was as GABBY as a flock of GEESE…

      Β° “I’m not GABBY” cried the owner of the GEESE, “I just have a HIDDEN desire to be a JUNIOR debater…”


  6. Thanks for the reminder of Elvis birthday.As a big time Elvis fan,I can’t picture him being 84 years old,and am actually glad he died young,which reminds me of the Housman poem,”To an Athlete Dying Young” where the athlete doesn’t experience the fading of his athletic talents.Likewise for Elvis,he didn’t experience the fading of his vocal talents.Being a math guy,and not an English guy,that poem is one of the few poems,from HS English lit class,that I remember.


  7. Hi all – No real problem with the words, but the double letter trick helped on HIDDEN. Looked like JUDGE was part of the answer, and writing the letters showed it.

    Welcome back Mike, and Happy New Year to you and your family!
    Angela, I hope you get some rest now that all the dinners, parties and holidays are over – although I did see all the Valentine’s Day hearts and chocolates at Safeway right after Christmas.

    Have a great day, everyone!
