BEFORE STARTING THE NEW AD CAMPAIGN, THE UNDERWEAR MODEL WAS – – –
BLRWDFEEILE = WELL-BRIEFED
Happy Wednesday, everyone! David gave us a brand new clue word with SIZZLE making its debut into gameplay this morning. We’ve been getting new words left and right, and I feel a bit spoiled at this point. The other three words were all used within the last year. LOWDR was the only new anagram gracing us with its presence, but it was just as easily deciphered as all of the others. With my mental warmup complete, it was time to head on over to the cartoon.
The setting for today’s panel brings us to photo shoot where we encounter two Jumble characters. The gentleman on the left is a model and his dialogue is a simple one sentence question. It seems as though he’d like a bit more information about the product that he’s about to display for the camera and the photographer clues him in. She explains that it’s a new kind of underwear made from a high-tech material, and she can be seen pointing to an illustration displaying the two different styles.
The man on the left is dressed in a light blue bathrobe tied with a simple side knot. His hairy legs immediately caught my attention and I couldn’t help but release a chuckle. The tripod displays a pair of boxer briefs on the left and a traditional pair of underwear on the right. Below each pair is a faceless model that shows a different angle of the garment. The small drawings may have been difficult to see in your newspaper, but I could see that the model on the right was holding a steaming hot cup of coffee.
The final solve was an anagram consisting of 11-letters that would produce two words. The layout was rather impressive and kept the solution well hidden. I had to rearrange the letters several times in the margins of my paper before I finally saw BRIEF. The W and the two L’s brought WELL into view leaving the -ED suffix for the finish. I love a good challenge, and David definitely delivered one this morning. Have a wonderful Wednesday, and I’ll see you right back here tomorrow!
