Good Morning, Everyone! 🐉 SAFARI’s NOT GOING SO WELL…🐉
🎶In the JUNGLE, the mighty JUNGLE, the lion sleeps tonight…In the JUNGLE, the quiet JUNGLE, the lion sleeps tonight…A-weema-weh, a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh…A-weema-weh, a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh…🎶 “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” – The Tokens 1961
🗡They veered off course and separated from the expedition,
The two guys found themselves adrift…and nervous by admission…
No longer caring if they looked MANLY to one another,
At this point they just hoped these leaves won’t cause them both to smother….
Why did they buy that TICKET? And spend money on that HUTCH?
Were they so naive as to think some small animal they’d clutch?
They’re gonna need a DOCTOR…that is if they survive,
Right now they’re only hoping they get out of there alive
No more safaris, they won’t need those hats and those bush jackets…
They realize now they’re city boys…of course they COULDN’T HACK
Starting off what to many of us here in the United States is a 3-day weekend, unlike these guys we meet today, we’re in the clear…No new words to throw us off course, and easy, breezy ones at that. But we are faced with three repeat anagrams, a bit of a rarity. HUTCH, our first, takes the honors as our oldest entry, (03/20/12), but it was also used, as it is today, CUTHH on 06/09/18. Ditto MANLY…I uncovered it as NAYML back on 11/09/18, and DOCTOR’s last been in the house on 01/27/19, but a showing of CROOTD also occurred way back on Thanksgiving Day, 2014. Which leaves us …Yea, that’s the TICKET, our sole new anagram of the day, and also our most recent repeat as of 03/27/19….Phew! So, now that we’ve brushed our way through today’s words…let’s venture deeper…and HACK our way through today’s cartoon….
Jungle fever…if not now…I think it’s pretty GERMane to be happening soon. I have no idea where we are, or why for that matter, but I’ll play the game… SAFARI I can see, we’ve come upon two men lost in the Jungle. APEparantly separated from the rest of their group, we see the two wandering, trying to “cut their way through the Jungle”…and I thicket’s not going well. Armed with only a Machete, they realize that TOUCAN NOT play this game…and this is not something they can take LION down…Battered, bruised, disheveled and obviously not having A-FRICAN good time, they’ve reached the conclusion that this wasn’t the best of ideas, and they’re not getting anywhere, since it’s obvious they COULDN’T HACK IT. Good one, David! You’re a regular CUT UP!…
Ok, eye candy. From the looks of these guys, I think it’s safe to say they’ve been lost for a while now. RHINO one’s out looking for them is beyond me…Or maybe there is a search party out there, but they’re just not CUT out to do the job…I HIPPOs it happens… Anyway, there’s nothing to see in our panel besides our guys and all that Flora. Dark shades of green, with some black, in various shapes. And the guy who appears to be the younger of the two, seems to have lost his Safari hat…what a PITHy…But the detail with the most bite? Amidst all that Flora…you know there must be Fauna…and up above in that tree looming right overhead? It’s a snake. A large, yellow, coiled snake. MAMBA Mia!!! And if you look real closely? He’s grinning…Uh oh...Let us PREY…So, There you are it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone…And as for me?…SAFARI? I’m not browsing any farther than my iPad! 🗡🙋🏻
