THE WINDOW COMPANY WAS STRUGGLING AND EXPERIENCING – – –
AEN SOP WRI NGG = GROWING “PANES”
Happy Tuesday, everyone! There weren’t any new clue words this morning, but three of the anagrams were new. The only one that we’ve definitely seen before was POSYU, and it was scrambled the same way as when we last saw it on 6/25/19. Pulling double duty, it was also our most recent clue word while ENGAGE was the oldest. It took me the longest time to figure out and is my pick for today’s most difficult anagram. Since David did us a favor and coupled up similar letters, I knew the double letter trick wasn’t going to work. A quick rewrite of the letters was all that was needed to bring the answer into view, and just like that, I was ready to move on to the cartoon.
When first looking at the panel, I thought the setting was a showroom for windows. A quick read of the dialogue and sentence got me up to speed and we figure out that we’re in a factory that produces windows.
The conversation between the two characters in the foreground revolves around the subpar product that the new employees are putting out. The large window appears to have seven cracks in the different panes and management is less than thrilled with their results. The two employees in the background add a bit of comic relief to the panel. They can be seen looking at a window that has a couple more cracks in it which, unfortunately, brings the pane pain to nine!
The final solve was an anagram consisting of 12-letters. The -ING near the end of the layout made our job a whole lot easier as it allowed us to eliminate three letters right off the bat. PANES was rather visible after picking up on the visual clues in the cartoon, and all that was left was GROW to finish it off. Have a terrific Tuesday, and I’ll see you right back here tomorrow!
