CARTOON ANSWER: WHEN THE TRACK COACH’S STOPWATCH WOULDN’T WORK IT WAS – – –
IN IA GD TMB = BAD TIMING
Good Morning, Everyone! ⏱ TIME waits for no HAND! ⏱
🎶 TIME is on my side, yes it is, TIME is on my side, yes it is…Now you all were saying that you want to be free…But you’ll come RUNNIN‘ back (I said you would Baby)…You’ll come RUNNIN‘ back (like I told you so many times before)…You’ll come RUNNIN‘ back to me, yeah…🎶 “Time Is On My Side” – The Rolling Stones 1964 https://tinyurl.com/y74lanhf
🏃🏻⏱The whole idea of Timing is keeping it correct…
So IRONY is sure in play…’cause this becomes suspect,
Like keys on a PIANO, everything must be in tune…
A watch that’s off can only end in runners being ruined.
There is no room for error…a TUMBLE to career,
If minutes, even seconds aren’t perfectly adhered…
Like poets look for meter…GLADLY welcoming the rhyming,
A watch must either be exact or end up with BAD TIMING…⏱🏃🏻
Once again today, our words are all old favorites, all last seen in 2018, and easily solved in no TIME. PIANO, last seen on August 14th, was anagrammed exactly as it is today, while IRONY, making its 8th appearance hasn’t once been repeated in its’ scrambling…It also COMES IN as our most recent entry, having last appeared on September 14th. And without wasting a MINUTE more, let’s get on to our cartoon….
RUNNING right along, today we find ourselves outdoors at a Running Track. We see a male COACH, and his female SECOND in command. Two male RUNNERS, who look to be of college age, are seen speaking with him, Obviously having just completed their run, one’s heard asking how well he did, “how fast did I go“…But the Coach, unable to give him the TIME of day, admits that the battery’s dead on his STOPWATCH. This prompts the Assistant Coach to state..”Thats not good”. Hmm..Looks like they didn’t do too well on their WATCH now, did they? Talk about BAD TIMING! Good one, David…Your TRACK RECORD’s impeccable!
Ok, eye candy…For a FLEETING MOMENT, I thought there weren’t any hidden gems to be found. But as I looked more CLOSEly, they practically fell into my LAP…In the backGROUND, to the left, an athlete can be seen leaping over a hurdle onto a mat. To the right of him, we can see two females running. I say female, because they’re both SPORTing pony tails which are flying in the wind, but on SECOND thought, it’s really neither HAIR nor there. They could be males…An American flag is flying from atop the building off in the DISTANCE. As for our characters, both runners are wearing orange tank tops, with blue shorts and orange shoes. They each have a single bead of sweat dripping from their right cheeks. The blond one at right is wearing a head band, and white banded tube socks. Jeff’s drawn the Stopwatch in the Coach’s hand, with small lines of MOTION, showing that he keeps pressing the TIMER button on top. Nice detail, Jeff. The watch is attached to a black strap, which he’s wearing around his neck. Both Coaches are dressed in light blue polos, but all similarity STOPs there. Coach wears orange shorts and blue shoes, with a cap matching his shirt. Our Assistant is clad in black shorts, with orange shoes. A brown visor is holding her hair back. I found it a little odd that there was no UNIFORMity in their clothing, but then I remembered that unfortunately Jeff doesn’t RUN the show when it comes to coloring the panels. And that’s our LOSS…But the RUNaway hit today is the emblem on our woman’s polo shirt and shorts. If you look real closely, you’ll see that It’s a WINGED FOOT of the Greek God Mercury, which is a symbol used for Athletic Running, but it’s also the Goodyear logo. https://tinyurl.com/hdzakts …I don’t know if there’s a connection, but if anyone has any free TIME, perhaps you might be interested in looking into it. If so, please share it with our TEAM. So, There you have it, Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone…and may you all “Put on a Happy PACE“…⏱🏃🏻
