CARTOON ANSWER: THE PODIATRIST HAD A FANCY NEW OFFICE AND HAD ENOUGH PATIENTS TO – – –
BLO FL HOT ETI = FOOT THE BILL
Good Morning, Everyone! 👣THERE’S NO BUSINESS LIKE TOE BUSINESS…👣
🎶 Everybody get on your feet…You make me nervous when you in your seat…Take off your shoes and pat your feet, we’re doin’ a dance that can’t be beat…We’re BAREFOOTIN’, we’re BAREFOOTIN‘, we’re BAREFOOTIN’, we’re BAREFOOTIN’...🎶..”Barefootin'” – Robert Parker. 1966
👣 I knew of a Podiatrist who’s son became one too…
So people said the younger followed in his Father’s shoes..
And as little child I’d see the patients flock,
Into the offices they shared…it was just up the BLOCK.
I guess it wasn’t Junior’s FAULT that he’d choose this career,
I also knew a Barber who’s son got into his hair…
As far as a career goes, HOTTER choices come to mind,
But then again it is vital…our feet face daily grind…
Like METRIC means a lot to me as I write poetry,
There’ll always be the human foot…and hence Podiatry…
But in my mind I’m thinking of the Father and son still
I laughed then as a child and it still can FOOT THE BILL 👣
While all four of our words today have been in Jumble play before, two of the anagrams are also reTREADS. Colkb was used back on 02/01/16, and Trohet was seen on 02/12/17. And once again, we have a word playing double duty…Fault first appeared in 2014, and most recently on 06/19/18, making it today’s oldest and newest entry. And Metric NAILS it down as our final word with two past appearances. But if I had to go out on a limb and choose a word that put the Early Birds through their PACES this morning, I’d go with Hotter. Somehow they were TROwn with the TRO…
Today’s cartoon brings us into the fancy new office of Dr. Hiram ARCH, known in the Podiatry Circles as HIGH ARCH. We see him treating a patient, perhaps for a PUNion, who’s very impressed with not only the “new place“, but by the looks of the crowded office, the number of patients High has managed to get under FOOT to BOOT. And by the smile on High’s face, we can see that he’s just as enTOESiastic about the new DIGS. And with all the new FOOT traffic…there’s now enough to PAD his bank account, since the patients will FOOT THE BILL. Good one, David..you always STEP UP!
Ok, eye candy. Both our characters today have a rather distinctive look about them. They may very well be people that Jeff knows. There’s little things that differ from Jeff’s usual characteristics. The hair of both men, the glasses on them both, the rather elongated face of the Dr. But since Jeff would be the SOLE owner of that information, we can only surmise. Our patient has a brown sock on his right foot, that matches well with the brown toned clothing he’s wearing. And his left leg, up on the table, is showing hair. The Doctor is wearing a light blue lab coat. We see a mold of a left foot in the background atop a counter, but it’s what’s next to it that really SPURred me on. There’s a potted PLANTAR holding Bamboo. I though for sure it’d be MistleTOE! So, There you have it, Folks…Done! Have a great day, Everyone…And if you can’t TOE the line…at least be sure to put your best FOOT forward! 👣🙋🏻
