CARTOON ANSWER: THE RACE CAR DRIVER HAD HIS OWN LINE OF DEODORANT CALLED – – –
PP O IS TT = PIT STOP
Good Morning, Everyone! 🏎 DRIVEN TO SUCCESS 🏎
🎶 Love to see a perfect PIT, love to see them tag…love a last lap turn four pass and my guy takes the checkered flag…love it when they’re making lots and lots of noise, Can’t wait to hear d.w. say ” boogity, boogity, boogity, lets go racing boys..Nascar racing boys…🎶 “NASCAR Love- Let’s Go Racing Boys” – Toby Lightman 2008
🏎 For those who know of Race cars, the fit is quite a squeeze,
Not that one’d be a MISFIT, but it’s not exactly ease…
And those of you who know me, you know I love a race,
Well actually my love is Helio Castroneves’ face!
I do love Indy Racing, the 500 every May…
And that seems what we find ourselves relating to today.
It definitely is “TK” who’s the TARGET of our pic,
I wonder if that Pit Crew has a GOUGE within its’ tricks…
I’m going to pass on GUPPY, with car racing it’s a flop,
There’s no place for a tiny fish while making a PIT STOP…🏎
With all our words today being old favorites, we’re also seeing recycled anagrams, with the exception of Guppy. Misfit, last seen on January 4th, finishes in first place as our most recent entry, while Gouge brings up the rear, going back to 2014. And on August 18th, ’18, both Guppy and Gouge appeared in the same puzzle. So, with those little quirks out of the way, and none of our words STOPping any of the Early Birds this morning, let’s DRIVE forward to our cartoon…
While we usually don’t see an Indy 500 related puzzle until late May, today we seem to be off to a RUNNING START. Brought to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the home of the Indy 500, we’re getting a bit of a preview. Along the sidelines, we see Tony Kanaan, “TK”, the Brazilian Racing Driver, taping a commercial for his new line of Deodorant. The Director, being told by his assistant that Tony’s hand is TURNed the wrong way, and hiding the logo, yells “Cut“, and tells Tony to STOP and take a BRAKE. In an effort to add realism to the commercial, we see two members of Tony’s PIT CREW off to the side in the background working on his car. And with Tony saying that he can work up a “SWEAT driving 500 miles“…we can easily see our way to the FINISH LINE…The deodorant is called...PIT STOP. Good one, David! You’re always right ON TRACK!
Ok, eye candy. My eyes were drawn to the Assistant Directors cap. Worn backwards, we can see her hair showing through the opening of the adjustable back, and the two dotted enclosures are visible. Nice detail, Jeff. The red deodorant tube in Tony’s hand is nondescript, but we can see that it’s a roll-on. And the Jumble trademark “J” is patched in a circle on both Tony’s chest and shoulder. But what DROVE it all HOME for me? If you look real closely, on the shoulder, under the J? Jeff’s drawn a tiny “65” commemorating Jumbles’ 65th Anniversary this year! Great TURN, Jeff! It’s a WINNER! So, There you gave it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone!…And I hope you’re all REVVED UP for the weekend! 🏎🙋🏻
