Happy Monday, everyone! Are you bready for another week of Jumble fun? David was on a roll this morning, and he baked up four brand new anagrams to try and get a rise out of us. HECTIC was the only word that brought my game to a grainding halt, and left me feeling a bit crusty, too! GOUGE was our most recent repeat and it’s been barley five months since we last saw it on 4/12/19. SQUISH is our moldy but goodie and was last featured on 12/23/13.
Taking a quick look back at the poll answers from last week, it looks like we had quite a few good stumpers to give us a challenge. Here are the results listed in order from Monday to Sunday. Maybe you’ll do batter the second time around!
Today’s cartoon lands us in a kitchen where we see two women busy making bread. The woman on the left can be seen kneading a dough ball while her friend is removing some freshly baked loaves from the oven. I bet that kitchen smells sooooo good! There’s nothing quite like the aroma of fresh baked bread to make a home smell warm and inviting.
These woman looked a bit cramped in the tiny kitchen and the cartoon sentence reveals that this baker has her sights set on opening up a bakery. When I read “need some investors” in the last line of the dialogue, DOUGH instantly came to mind and I was sure it would be part of the final solution.
Looking at the 14-letter final anagram, DOUGH was there, and THE jumped out at me too. RAISE was found in the remaining letters to complete the puzzle and tickle my punny bone. Have a terrific Monday, and I’ll see you right back here tomorrow!
