CARTOON ANSWER: THE ANT’S EGGS HATCHED AND SHE DIDN’T MIND A BIT WHEN THE BABIES STARTED – – –
HUN BE IG RGG = BUGGING HER
Good Morning, Everyone! 🐜 A LITTLE MORNING ANT…ICS! 🐜
🎶 The ANTS go marching one by one, hurrah, hurrah..the ANTS go marching two by two, hurrah, hurrah…The ANTS go marching three by three…the little one stops to climb a tree…And they all go marching down to the ground…To get out of the rain…🎶 “The Ants Go Marching” – (Unsure) First appeared in Barney’s Campfire Sing Along – 1990 https://tinyurl.com/y4otop6h
🐜🐜 I’m so turned off by insects, I take it to extremes,
The sight of any crawly thing can surely evoke screams.
The thought of Ant eggs hatching turns my mood to INDIGO…
The tolerance is just not there…I see a bug…I go.
I told the story here once ’bout waking during the night,
And seeing in my bathroom a spider…Ugh the sight!
My other soundly sleeping, should I HOUND him to awake?
But it was dark and I just froze, and how long might it take?
So standing there all GROGGY, I tried to BRIBE myself,
To just reach up for any spray…they’re right there on the shelf…
Instead I just took action, and reached out towards the candles,
And took the lighter lying there…was all that I could handle.
‘Twas much more easy than I thought, I just burned down the house…
I figured this way I’d be free of any future louse…
It’s like I said, extreme I know, but I’m sure you’d concur,
It’s never only one spider…I solved the BUGGING HER 🐜🐜
Once again today, all of our words are old favorites, with HOUND and INDIGO having made numerous appearances, the most recent being in 2018. BRIBE’s been featured twice, both times in 2016, and we’ve only seen GROGGY once before, on October 2, 2017. As for the level of difficulty? GEE…GROGGY caused a pause with that “G” CREEPING up over and over, and believe it or not, BRIBE caused a blink too. A few of the Early Birds saw BgIB and RIB and as a result got caught between the SMOCK and the HARD PLACE...Ok, on to our cartoon…
So, ANTS. Creepy, crawly, Mama with all her little descendANTS…Located in an underground home somewhere, we see our proud parANTS starting their day. While Dad’s bidding adieu, we see Mama having some quality time with her precious newly-hatched offspring. And there’s 13 of them. 13! What’d I tell you, Folks? There’s NEVER just one! And you guys know how I’m such a stickler for detail…so I looked real closely to see if I could determine their genders for you. Since I see only 6 with Jeff’s signature eyelashes, I’m going with 6 girls. GrANTed, 2 ANTS have their backs to the camera, and there’s 1, third from the top at right that has his/her head thrown back, but I scrutinized the rest, and I’m pretty sure I got it right. Usually you can tell an ANT’S gender easily…You know, you put them in water…Whoever sinks, Girl ANT. Whoever floats… buoyANT. Easy. But being at a disadvANTage here, I did the best I could. Anyway, despite the majority of them clamoring for attention, Mama seems totally unfazed. And keep in mind, Dad’s leaving her with all these little BUGgers! So I guess it’s true…she didn’t mind a bit when the babies started…BUGGING HER! Ha! Good one, David! BrIlliANT!
Ok, eye candy. Eggshells are strewn on the ground, surrounding Mama, and all the ANTS are a cocoa-ish brown color. RED ANTS I guess. But it turns out that it’s Dad, heard saying that he’s “Off to work“, who really CREPT in to get the attention. Seen leaving, standing in the doorway where a WELCOME mat lies at the threshold, he’s wearing a yellow hard hat, and carrying a lunchpail. But what got my ANTtenEYE up this morning? With his thumb extended in the air, he’s gesturing towards his place of business…Which turns out to be an ANT HILL! And we can see his 8 co-workers working their way up…HA! Leave it to Jeff to give us such whimsically extravgANT details! Kudos, Jeff! You outdid yourself with this one! So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone…And I’ll leave you with a little BUG humor…
A male ANT and a male LADYBUG got into a conversation. The Ant asked the Ladybug..”So, if you’re a male, why aren’t you called a Manbug“? The Ladybug answered…”Well, if you’re a male, why aren’t you known as an Uncle“? …SemANTics, huh? 🐜🐜🙋🏻
