ANHEV = HAVEN
FYTAT = FATTY
DLIYWL = WILDLY
NILFUS = SINFUL
SOME PEOPLE DON’T BELIEVE THE EARTH IS SPHERICAL AND —
AENTTYLDYIFL = FLATLY DENY IT
Happy Thursday, everyone! For the second day in a row we welcome a brand new clue word into the Jumble lineup. SINFUL makes its debut into gameplay this morning and it was also the most difficult anagram for me to decipher. Just looking at the way it was scrambled, it looks like an actual word, albeit a derogatory one. “Get with the program, you NILFUS!“ The remaining three words were all recycled favorites although their anagrams came up as new. HAVEN was last used on 5/9/17 which made it the oldest of the group while FATTY was the freshest with a date of 2/13/18.
Our beloved Jumble characters are back in action this morning after a one-day hiatus. Today we encounter a group of four people that are gathered in a park and the main focus of the panel centers on the gentleman standing on a soapbox. The impassioned orator makes the claim that the earth is “like a pancake” and the visual aid to prove his case is a carboard cut-out of the planet. The remaining three characters don’t believe a word that he’s saying but they let him continue even though he’s making a bit of a NILFUS of himself!
There were plenty of details to absorb in today’s piece with the sign reading “Speakers’ Corner” perhaps being the most obvious of them all. The use of Speakers’ Corners are found all throughout Great Britain with the most notable one being in the northeast corner of Hyde Park in London. It is there that speakers may turn up unannounced and express their views on almost any subject, but they also run the risk of being heckled with today’s cartoon being a perfect example.
Since we now know that we’re in Great Britain, Jeff provided some additional details to give his work some local flair. The elder spectator is wearing a flat cap which is traditionally made out of wool. The young man in the foreground is wearing a t-shirt with a logo of the English rock band, The Clash, on the front. He’s standing next to a young woman who has a spiked mohawk, torn jeans with a wallet chain, and is carrying a soccer ball — I mean football!
The anagram for the final solution consisted of 12-letters which is the same amount as yesterday’s. The FL at the end of the anagram allowed me to find FLAT first. IT was the obvious 2-letter word leaving DENY and the -LY to finish it off. Have a terrific Thursday, and remember, a flat-earthers greatest fear is sphere itself! Cheerio!
