Good Morning, Everyone! 🗣👂🏻AUDIO….FRAUD..IO? 👂🏻🗣

🎶 You HEAR my voice, your HEAR that SOUND…Like thunder, gonna shake the ground…You held me down, but I got up…Get ready ’cause I had enough…I see it all, I see it now, I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter…Dancing through the fire, ’cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna HEAR me ROAR …Louder, LOUDER than a lion…’Cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna HEAR me ROAR!…🎶 “Roar” – Katy Perry 2013


🗣👂🏻So Awesome Audio’s offering a Hearing Aid anew,
And anyone who’s been through this knows these ads aren’t all true…
It sometimes just ends up a waste of money for some folks,
And these things don’t come cheap…so all of this, it ain’t no joke…
Over the years a STYLE comes, another one is gone,
It’s sad for those unable to adjust and settle on…
I know some people’ll wear them to affairs, maybe a formal
To understand the voices…and hold conversations NORMAL
But ‘oft times when amidst a THRONG, the sound can be distorted,
The aids don’t help…they just don’t work as they might be purported.
So people STALL to purchase them, it’s not an easy choice,
And sadly the Catch-22 leaves them without a voice…
From what I’ve heard these hard-of-hearing trials through the years?
Can leave one quite discouraged…just longing to have ALL EARS..👂🏻🗣

A few little oddities with our words this morning. First, both of our 6-letter words are coming up as new, and we don’t usually see that. I could maybe understand THRONG, not the most common of words, but NORMAL? I suspect I’m wrong, but since I can’t locate them in the Archives, I’m going to make the call and tag them as new..(although I am going to check again later)…That leaves us STALL and STYLE. Stall’s playing double-duty, old and new…I found it way back on 11/07/14, and as recently a 12/22/18. And Style, such a common word, seems to be MIA since 11/24/15…Another oddity. I thought for sure that it would’ve been used much more often, but again, I came up empty. And you can see that it’s anagrammed today exactly as it was that day. Ok, with none of our words posing any problem…let’s move on to our cartoon…

Today we find ourselves in the living room of a slightly older couple. If it seems somewhat familiar, true Jumble aficionados may recall that back on 10/27/18, we had a similarly themed puzzle, which featured a man Tom, and his wife. And the Facebook users amongst us would have seen the cartoon featured there also that day, where Jeff introduced us to his parents. And it was a fun cartoon then, as it is today. We see the couple, watching TV, where a commercial for Awesome Audio Hearing Aids is EARing. We see the wife, pointing to the TV with her right hand, while holding her left up to her ear, (as people sometimes tend to do when they’re shouting)…telling her husband that “these are what you need“, so that she can stop yelling at him. And he in turn, answers “What did you say”? The dialogue, all too funny! It puts me in mind of – hard-of-hearing or not – how all too often we women find ourselves in similar situations. Am I right, Ladies? Men, with their “selective hearing”? “Frank, for the third time, can you take out the trash”?…No answer. And yet from two rooms away, Frank can clEARly hear the crack of a bat when a baseball game’s EARing on TV…Hmm. Anyway, not making light of the issue, since hearing problems are all too common, and unfortunately not that easily dealt with. (I have members of my family, besides close friends who are hard-of- hearing, so I know all too well the struggles they go through. And I mean no disrespect to anyone dealing with it). But as far as our cartoon goes, regarding the commercial? Our wife is…ALL EARS! Good one, David…we HEAR you loud and clEAR!

So, eye candy. Tastefully decorated room, blue carpeting, mauve chairs, big screen TV, atop a double-doored credenza. A potted Areca Palm tree stands besides it. And the TV showing an ear with a newer discreet ITE (in-the-EAR) Hearing Aid, and huge letters spelling out “Call Now”. Not that much in the way of details…But what caught my eye? If you look real closely at the mans’ arm? You can see tiny hairs! And that’s nothing to bristle at! So, There you have it, Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And I’ll leave you with a bit of hearing humor…An elderly man was just fitted with hearing aids and he was hearing better than he had in a decade. He returned to his audiologist the following week after being fit, and the doctor asked him, “How are your hearing aids working?”…And the man answered…”Good, I’ve changed my will three times already!”…And drop the MIC! 👂🏻🗣🙋🏻

  1. Good morning. Loved your post and video song Angela. My choice for hardest word is Throng. Took about five minutes to finally sink in. The cartoon answer was a breeze. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Good Morning, Paul. Thank you very much,..And I agree completely…Easy, breezy puzzle, with THRONG on its’ way to being todays’ stumper. Have a great day, Brooklyn! 🗣🙋🏻

  2. The NORMAL STYLE of the jockey was to immediately return his horse to its STALL after a race, but because of the THRONG of people waiting to congratulate him on his big upset win, he was ALL EARS in wanting to hear their plaudits.

    • Hi Chuck,Good Morning. Great take, 👏🏻👏🏻. Once again today we have words that can be played out in so many different ways, and you’ve thought up a very imaginative piece. Kudos! I took mine in two totally different directions, and I really found the words fun to work with. Hope you’re enjoying your day! 🗣🙋🏻

    • 👗Always looking for the latest STYLE, it was NORMAL for her to take an armful of outfits into the STALL, but just as she was beginning to try them on, a fight broke out by the dressing rooms, and a THRONG of people gathered…needless to say…she was ALL EARS…👗

      🥘 She loved to cook, she always had, in Neapolitan STYLE,
      And very young she started…getting better all the while.
      ‘Twas NORMAL for her to produce enough to feed a THRONG,
      Her Grandmother had taught her…having extra’s never wrong…
      Her dishes so inviting, she learned them one and all…
      And found nothing too difficult, you’d never see her STALL.
      She memorized instructions, and they’ve lasted through the years…
      And she’s glad that when her Grandma spoke she listened with ALL EARS 🥘

  3. My vote for stall was the first.I saw slat first and couldn’t get it out of my mind.The other anagrams were a snap as was the final ” all ears” solution.We’re on the road again on a twin watch in Dixon.Have a great weekend.

    • Good Morning, Professor. I know the feeling. You get a word stuck in your head, and you’re done for! Glad you overcame! 😉 Have a great day and enjoy your time with the kids! 🗣🙋🏻

  4. Hi all – I also saw SLAT first, then it was nice to have a word with LY that didn’t end in either Y or LY. Misdirection on the last two words – the third word almost spelled MOLAR and the last almost spelled STRONG (and THRONG took me the longest). No problem with the answer.

    Nice joke Angela, I hadn’t heard that one. And the poem was quite touching and brought a smile.

    Have a great day and weekend, everyone!

    “The THRONG hoped to see the most outrageous STYLE at the famous designer’s STALL at fashion week, but all his creations were boringly NORMAL”.

    • Hi Michael. Yes, it seems to have been an easy week….Maybe we’ll get lucky and have a challenge tomorrow! Hope you’re enjoying your evening! 🙋🏻
