Jumble Answers for 05/14/2019












Happy Tuesday, Jumble players! Yesterday we saw a new clue word with POWER being added to the Jumble lineup. David continued his streak this morning by challenging us with CAULK. It took longer to come into view than any of the other words so it’ll be my pick for the most difficult anagram of the day. LIMIT was our only repeat anagram with the archives showing that it was scrambled the same way we see it today on 8/12/16. LIMBERΒ was the oldest returning favorite while ENTITYΒ was our most recently used word.

Today’s panel transports us to a modest looking office where we encounter three Jumble characters. The two men on the left are in need of legal assistance and it looks like they’ve come to the right place. We see them shaking hands with their new attorney and she’s left them with great big smiles on their faces. Even though the consultation appears to be cordial and upbeat, one must remember that attorneys are experts of persuasion and often tell you what you want to hear. Every case is uniquely different and even though their friends had a positive experience, they should consult other counsel to make sure their needs are being adequately met.

The extra details within the cartoon were well placed and you had to look beyond the handshake to notice them. The lawyer had a very comfortable looking chair behind her uncluttered desk and we see two small chairs out in front. For those players with a color version of the cartoon (I envy you!), you saw the exact same white carpet that those of us with the black and white version saw. The carpet did have some tasteful fringe along the edges for added texture. The highlight of the panel for me was the diploma on the wall. It reads “JUMBLE UNIVERSITY” along the top with a circled “J” within a square. There were also two signatures at the bottom of the diploma and the left one reads HOYT, and if you couldn’t guess, the right one reads “JEFF KNUREK”!

The final solve was an anagram consisting of 10-letters. The entire answer was in quotes which I know puts many of you on the defense. The key to my solve was in the wording of the cartoon sentence. I noticed the word “customers” and it didn’t quite seem to fit in this situation. CLIENT would have been a better choice and I saw it immediately in the layout. TELL was right there for the finish leaving us with a brilliant and clever pun. Have a terrific Tuesday, and I’ll see you right back here tomorrow!

  1. Good Morning, Mike. Good Morning, Everyone!.. Paul and Chuck…I present my CASE…for Truth, JUSTICE and a laugh for the day…πŸŽ“πŸ™‹πŸ»

    Β° Considering being LIMBER and agile a single ENTITY, the company was determined to acquire new CLIENT TELL, and posted help wanted ads seeking individuals able to CAULK their office windows within a 2-hour time LIMIT.

    πŸŽ“ Diploma hangs upon the wall…not Harvard, Penn or Yale,
    Our girl may need the word of mouth…from “Jumble U” she hails!
    Perhaps the education has a LIMIT on its worth?
    So PR is important to make up for what is dearth?
    A lot of shaking hands and keeping LIMBER just in case…
    She finds herself the need to pack it up and leave the place?
    Illustrous as it may seem, Sheepskin by Knurek and Hoyt?
    It may appear prestigious…but it also might exploit…
    Or maybe just good judgement can help her be a success?
    The ENTITY of knowledge….perhaps she just needed less?
    The proof that’s in the pudding…will she master “talk the talk”?
    Or does that old diploma hide a wall crack she can’t CAULK?
    I guess we’ll have to wait and see if it all turns out well…
    And hope she makes a go if it and gets that “CLIENT-TELL”πŸŽ“

    • Mike McCormick..LOL! Those Go-Go Girls! They should have GOne straight to Jail…without collecting the $200! πŸ˜‚ Good to look at, but what were they thinking back then? The choreography! The whole thing was a CRIME scene! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      • Yes, the Go-Go girls. So 1966! Waving those pistols around, and then plopping to the floor at the end!
        Bobby Fuller was found dead in a car in Hollywood just a few months after this song became a top 10 hit. The cause of his death is disputed. https://tinyurl.com/pxc7uc8
        Incidentally I don’t get the connection to Paul. Did Brooklyn recently have a fight with the law?

        • …And soooo funny! The camp! How about the clips where they’re in the cages? I die! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I don’t know much about Bobby Fuller…thanks for the read..And Mike…Don’t you know Brooklyn IS the law! πŸ˜‰…But no particular connection…I just like giving Paul a little boost in getting his day off to a good start…He makes me laugh, I provide him with some music. We Brooklynites got it like that! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Have a good one Mike…I hope you’re not affected by all that rain…πŸ™‹πŸ»

  2. Good morning. Thanks Mike for an interesting and informative post. A lot of hidden treasures I never saw. Thanks also Angela for that video. Had a enjoyable time watching it. Laughed at the one girl standing still and just moving her hands. Nice job on the words besides. And speaking of words. My choice for hardest word would be ENTITY over CAULK by less than a minute. Seeing the quotation marks for the cartoon answer didn’t deter me today. It took me a little time because I kept going over the words and picture. I finally saw TELL first which left CLIENT. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • You’re most welcome, Paul. Great job solving the puzzle because I know how much you dislike quotes. Keep it up and you’ll earn your Jumble University degree! πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸŽ“

    • Good Morning, Brooklyn! You’re very welcome, I knew you’d enjoy it! And she cracked me up too…Funny thing though, she kept right in tune with the music, right?.I guess she had some kind of rhythm.πŸ’ƒπŸ»…it just didn’t spread too far! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Thanks for the Shout Out, Brooklyn, 😘..and I hope you’re having a good one! Ciao, Bello! πŸŽ“πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ™‹πŸ»

  3. The LIMIT to which the unknown ENTITY is exerting its LIMBER self to do damage seems endless as now the CAULK around windows on second floors is being ripped away. This is sorta lame, Angela, but we can’t hit home runs ever day! Hope your day is progressing nicely..

    • LOL! Good Morning, Chuck…You literally made me LOL.πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»..I’ve dated a few “unknown ENTITIES” πŸ˜‚ In my travels,..so I can definitely relate! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ And Lame is nothing more than a 4-letter word…As for the Home Runs? When my Dad was teaching me to hit, He always said..”Don”t worry about being a hero…just concentrate on connecting with the ball”. ‘Nuff said…Have a good one, Chuck! βšΎοΈπŸ™‹πŸ»

      • Your dad sounds to me to have been a very wise and common sense type of guy. Common sense, today, seems all too often- placed on the back burner!!!

        • Yep, Chuck, thank you…that He was…And a little eerie your mentioning of common sense. “Don’t be book smart, and common sense stupid” was something we heard a lot! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ And I agree…sadly, a lot doesn’t make much sense nowadays…πŸ€”πŸ™‹πŸ»

  4. Hi all – LIMBER took an extra look, and then CAULK took a few more, and I did check the spelling to be sure I had it right. CLIENT came to me, and I wrote the letters to see what answer they wanted. I did wonder whether CAULK was one of David’s new words he promised, and I admit that I’m old enough that it first reminded me of the early kids’ TV show β€œKukla, Fran and Ollie”.

    Mike thanks for the details which inspired me to look online (off topic, *how* many runs did the Sox score last weekend? πŸ˜‚)

    Angela, I’d love to know what show that clip was from. It doesn’t look like Shindig, Hullabaloo or any of the usual suspects, maybe British.

    Have a great day, everyone!

    • My friends are just now speaking of the oft repeated Hollywood story…Death in Threes..Peggy Lipton, Doris Day and now Tim. Yes, RIP Mr Conway. πŸ˜’πŸ™‹πŸ»

  5. Angela:
    That was an interesting article on the Rockbillyhall site. I see that that guy says “Bobby Fuller was the only artist who could do Buddy Holly justice.” I didn’t know that Bobby Fuller did that many Holly songs. I think “I Fought the Law” is the only song of his I’ve heard.
    We had more rain in the first 10 days of May than we average for the entire month of May. There were a couple of nights when the low-water crossing closure map was lit up with red dots. Main effect on me was that my backyard’s been soggy, but it’s almost dry now.

    • I thought so too, Mike..very interesting. Not all that easy to read though, right, with the color background? But worth the little squint or two…99% of what was in it was new to me. I know you’re in Austin, but the footage that’s shown on the news of other parts of Texas is mind-boggling. So much flooding. So much of the country getting hit so hard. We’ve had heavy rain here for days, but not an iota at all to compare. So far Spring hasn’t brought all that much to brag about, and I just hope all those people get some help to deal with the destruction…πŸ’¦πŸ’¦πŸ™‹πŸ»
