BEFORE DECIDING ON WHICH NEW SCALE TO PURCHASE, SHE WANTED TO – – –
IGO NIH SOT PWE = WEIGH HER OPTIONS
Happy Wednesday, everyone! This one might have been a whole lot harder if HER wasn’t given to us. All of the extra letters were there if the guys wanted to add it into the final anagram (H from NINTH, and the ER from PEWTER) but I guess it wasn’t meant to be. It really did tip tip the scales in my favor so who am I to complain!
The new clue word count for this week increased by one with David adding SOFTEN into the lineup. That brings us to a solid four — and it’s only Wednesday! The remaining three might have been repeats, but all of their anagrams are coming up as new. They were all solved at first glance and didn’t slow me down in the least.
Today’s cartoon brings us to the sales floor of a home improvement store where we see a woman test-driving a scale. There were four different models to choose from, and if this woman is anything like my wife, the less options there are to choose from, the better! I mean, is she really going to use the app to help manage her weight loss? Sometimes it’s best to keep it simple and go with the model that looks nice but gets the job done.
Jeff added a few extra details in the background to let us know that this woman is indeed in the plumbing section of the store. On display are a couple of plungers, a toilet seat, and a toilet tank. The most interesting part of the panel for me were the smaller toilet parts that are hanging on the shelf. They appear to be shrink wrapped to cardboard and have a notch in the middle of each one for ease of display. At first I thought Jeff might have been trying to spell out something with the extra parts but I gave up on my crazy conspiracy after nothing came to mind after a minute or two.
The final solve was an anagram consisting of 12-letters. The layout kept the answer well hidden but it was just too easy to solve based upon the visual clues of the scales and HER being given to us. I guess we’ll just have to weight and see what tomorrow brings! Have a wonderful Wednesday, and I’ll see you right back here tomorrow.
