Jumble Answers for 09/25/2019












Happy Wednesday, everyone! There was a lot to like about today’s puzzle. If you were able to link all of the different interactions going on, you most likely had a good shot at figuring out the stinky pun. Definitely a tasty finish and not low quality spam!

All of our clue wursts were old favorites. Try as he might, David wasn’t able to stump me with any of them. Early voting indicates that GOVERN is bacon your hearts this morning. It is the second oldest word in the lineup, but TANGY edged it out by a month back on 11/05/18. DEVICE has been aged a decent 7 months making it Mr. Hoyt’s most recent offering.

Today’s cartoon has us attending a Butcher’s conference and it’s there that we meat seven different Jumble characters. All of the attendees have name tags except for the gentleman passing hors d’oeuvres. Even though there was a lot of dialogue and interesting detail to digest, it was important to consume the panel like a comic book page and make your way from left to right and top to bottom.

The first interaction was perhaps the most interesting one, and we see an atypical Jumble character identifying himself as Abe Froman. Bells and whistles went off in my mind and I recalled that Abe Froman was the named used by Matthew Brodericks character during a restaurant scene in the movie “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.” In case you were wondering, Abe Froman is actually a real person and you can read a little more about the pork-guru right HERE.

The rest of the panel continued this meating of the minds, and all of the characters had fun details to discover. There was the butcher knife prop being worn by Joe, and he’s dressed in a tie with thirteen steer heads on it. We see him reaching for a lamb lollip hors d’oeuvre from a platter that holds ten of them. Pat has T-bone earrings while Casey seems to have 16 eggs on his bow tie. Sam, who I originally thought might be a member of the Perdue chicken family, seems to be the only character without a protein-themed detail, but he did have quite the haircut!

The final solve was similar to yesterday’s with an anagram consisting of 12-letters and one word in quotations. With all of the characters hamming it up, it was quite obvious that MEAT would somehow be part of the solution. Crossing out the letters brought AND into view next, followed by GREET for the finish. The quotations may have been the only part of the puzzle to raise the steaks, but in the end they failed to sizzle. Have a wonderful Wednesday, and I’ll see you right back here tomorrow!

  1. Good Morning, Mike. Good Morning, Everyone! And HELLO Ferris Bueller Fans Everywhere! …No LAMBasting this one…The STEAKS might have been high, but I BUTCHER didn’t have to RACK your brains or sit and sigh…🥩🙋🏻

    🎶 I like my STEAK well done, my taters fried…Football games on Monday night…It’s just who I am…A MEAT and potato man..I like my coffee black…Ol’ TV shows, my women hot and my beer ice cold… It’s just who I am…A MEAT and potato man…🎶 “Meat and Potato Man” – Alan Jackson 2000 https://tinyurl.com/yybmqta2

    🥩 Have you ever watched meat grinding… the METAL as it churns?
    And sometimes as it’s chopped all up…your stomach maybe turns?
    The DEVICE looking menacing…as GOVERN butchers do,
    Preparing what you’ll cook tonight…you might think cordon bleu…
    I think it fares much better if we take our meat and run,
    And not pay much attention to how it all begun.
    A TANGY steak, a thick rich stew… My vote definitely cast,
    A life without my meatballs? No way, I’d never last…
    So usually I turn away, while always quite discreet,
    My butcher knows the way I am…we don’t need “MEAT” AND GREET 🥩

  2. It’s RARE when such an eclectic mix of words can BLEND so WELL, BUTT today David’s SERVED them up on a silver PLATTER…Have a great day, Everyone! 🌭🍔🙋🏻

    💃🏻🕺🏻 After the Chairman’s behavior at their latest MEAT AND GREET dinner-dance, the “TANGY Merengue”, the committee realized that he chose to GOVERN with an iron fist, but they felt him made of a much softer METAL, and were determined to use whatever DEVICE possible to oust him…💃🏻🕺🏻

    🙇🏻‍♂️ He suffers acid reflux, and the TANGY lemonade,
    Gave him the taste of METAL, and this time it didn’t fade…
    He knows that he should GOVERN what he eats and drinks all day,
    But all too often he ignores the things the doctors say.
    They’ve offered many a DEVICE to help him keep it beat…
    But he forgets them every time he’s at a MEAT AND GREET 🙇🏻‍♂️

  3. Good morning. I’m back. Had two days in A/C with two of my sons and daughterinlaws. Nobody won but we had a good time. Tues morning before heading home from the Borgata,it was packed and Caesars was like a ghost town. We had Sunday brunch at Caesars which is great. Had no problem with the words but took some time to solve the cartoon answer. Thought it was clever. Liked you country pick Angela and also your post. Until tomorrow stay well.

  4. The mayor sat alone in his office sipping a TANGY beverage from a METAL container thinking about a new DEVICE to help him GOVERN the city.

  5. Hi all – Just quick pauses at the last three words with GOVERN taking slightly longer. Putting IC at the end didn’t help, but DEVICE showed up anyway, and the answer was an instant solve.

    Thanks for all the details! Didn’t see the movie, and never heard the term “lamb lollipop” before.

    Have a great day, everyone! Last day of our heatwave, supposedly

    “The METAL DEVICE meant to GOVERN the space capsule’s re-entry almost failed after it got all TANG-Y from the astronaut’s spilled breakfast”.
