CARTOON ANSWER: THE GLUE FACTORY EMPLOYEES PLANNED TO START A LABOR UNION AND – – –
GOR CHIE TET SKT = STICK TOGETHER
Good Morning, Everyone! 🗣State of the UNION 🗣
🎶Absolutely no one that knows me better…No one that can make me feel so good.,.How did we stay so long TOGETHER when everybody, everybody said we never would?…Whoa-oh, whoa-oh...STUCK LIKE GLUE…You and me baby…We’re STUCK LIKE GLUE...🎶 “Stuck Like Glue” – Sugarland 2010 http://tinyurl.com/yyg2or92
🗣The Unions were a blessing, especially years ago,
When sometimes TWENTY hour days fell on the average Joe..
Ok, maybe not 20, that’s a stretch as you can see…
But I needed for the word to work…you’ll have to forgive me…
And CHIVE don’t look much better..do Chives grow on a GOURD?
These words referring Unions? Relating lacks accord…
But SKETCH now that’s a good one, I’m thinking Norma Rae…
I always loved that movie…I do until this day…
A story that was based on truth, and Sally Field we saw,
Win herself an Oscar for some drama that was raw.
But getting back to Unions, today they still hold strong,
And give American workers safety nets from lots of wrongs…
The Brotherhood that binds them all, perhaps it’s like a tether?
The bottom line, a Union means these workers STICK TOGETHER! 🗣
Now this I found very strange. TWENTY, such a common word is not showing up in the blog’s Archives. Granted, these records only go back to 2014, but it still seems so odd that such an every day word wouldn’t have been used more often. And it does look so familiar…Anyway…CHIVE, has been used twice, once in ’17, and once in ’18, and both times with the same anagram, Vihec. SKETCH, making its’ 5th appearance, was last seen in May of ’18, and GOURD ranks as our newest (06/19/18) and oldest (12/10/14) entry…Ok, we’ve STUCK around here long enough…It’s time to get it TOGETHER, and move on to our cartoon…
Today we find ourselves on the production floor of a GLUE FACTORY. Looking to start a UNION we see a young woman, taking on the role of an organizer. And her four co-workers are giving her her DUES..or is it due? Either way, we can see they’re all on board, and as our friendly rabble-rouser is overheard saying…”We all AGREE“…Now if that’s not STICKing TOGETHER, I don’t know what is…Good one, David..AD HEAR you!
Ok, eye candy. So was it just me? Did anyone else think Sally Field working in that cotton mill in “Norma Rae“? http://tinyurl.com/y4rehmef Remember the scene where she took that piece of cardboard, and after writing UNION on it, stood on top of the work table and just turned around? And one by one her co-workers stood and turned off their machines…and the place fell deadly silent? That scene is one that always STUCK in my mind, and I get chills to this day, just thinking of it. Well, this cartoon today brought me back there…Anyway, all five of our Factory workers are dressed in Blue work shirts, and of the three people facing forward, we see them wearing name tags, but they’re blank. There’s a huge Glue Making Machine in the background to the right, and lined up on the winding Conveyer belt are bottles and bottles of what looks very much like Elmer’s Glue. And that’s what I’m STUCK on today…As Lionel Ritchie would say… STUCK ON GLUE!..Oh wait…That’s 🎶Stuck on You🎶….https://tinyurl.com/y3kcld66 So, There you have it, Folks…Done! Have a great day, Everyone!…And remember… If given enough time to BOND, most people will always reach a COHESIVE understanding…🗣🙋🏻
Good Morning, Paul…THIS ONE’S FOR YOU…So, I hate second-guessing myself. I have to admit, this DID pop into my head 1:30 this morning, but I like Sugarland, and I just felt the title fit the puzzle better. ..it had GLUE in it…And then Lionel Ritchie starting playing in my head too, so I included that…BUT…5…5 of my Early Birds are all over me this morning…”Are you kiddin’ me”? “You know you blew it”…”You overrode Elvis, are you crazy”? ..etc, etc…EARLY in the morning…Chicago, Indiana, No. Carolina, Vegas, Florida…I’ve disappointed half the country! 😂😂 Soooo..Here it is..and Brooklyn I somehow have a feeling this might make you happier too…(Not to mention…it DID made me happy…Just look at that face)! 😉 “Stuck on You” – Elvis 1960 ENJOY! http://tinyurl.com/y5msp7fb
