THE COURT CASE AGAINST THE MANUFACTURER OF THE FAULTY WINDOWS WAS – – –
HOUDATSPENN = OPEN AND SHUT
Happy Wednesday, everyone! Today’s game featured all recycled clue words that didn’t take any time to decipher. They were all used last year with the exception being DRAFT. We last saw it in gameplay on 9/15/16 where it was scrambled as FARDT. Since they all came easily, I’ll leave a poll down below where you can vote for the most difficult anagram of the day.
Jumble artist, Jeff Knurek, decided to keep the courtroom theme going for one more day in his midweek cartoon offering. Looking at the panel, we see three Jumble characters in the frame with a window on the witness stand. The woman on the left can be seen pointing her right hand at the window while stating in her dialogue that the problem with the window is obvious. Since the online version of the puzzle wasn’t available this morning, I had to take a few extra seconds to figure out exactly what the problem was. It finally occurred to me that the glass panels of the window swivel left to right instead of going up and down. Talk about a real pane in the glass!!! The judge has seen enough of the plaintiffs case and immediately rules in their favor. The defendant has a look of defeat in his facial expression as well as in his body language and his dialogue in the form of a question added a touch of comedic relief to the courtroom drama that just unfolded. I guess you could say that he missed his window of opportunity to sway the case in his favor.
The letter layout for the final solution was 11-letters in length which is the same amount of letters as yesterday’s game. Focusing on the anagram for a few seconds allowed me to see “PEN” which made me think of OPEN. With those letters crossed out the rest of the solution immediately came into view for the finish. Have a wonderful Wednesday, and I’ll see you right back here tomorrow!
