Jumble Answers for 11/25/2019












Happy Monday, everyone! At first I thought that Magician Mac King was making an appearance for the second day in a row, but the cartoon sentence revealed that it was a random teenager from the Jumble community. I’ve always thought that it would be interesting to see the same characters used over the course of a week in a comic strip type of fashion and the Thanksgiving holiday would have been the perfect opportunity to make it happen. Do you have any interest in seeing a story play out via the cartoon, and maybe have the words relate to the subject matter? The possibilities really are endless so let’s hear your ideas in the comments section down below!

All of today’s anagrams were arranged in alphabetical order. Their solutions have made an appearance in the game over the past couple of years making all of them repeats. NOYELL was by far the hardest for me to figure out but the double letter trick of separating similar letters made it a whole lot easier. The trick would have also worked on the other 6-letter anagram, VIRRDE, if you found yourself stuck on that one. The difficulty level of the anagrams was right on par with what we’ve come to expect on a Monday so that most likely means we’ll have some good challenges as we inch closer towards the weekend.

The setting for today’s panel is a dining room and we see three Jumble characters having an interaction. Two of the characters, a teenager and a middle-aged adult, are having an arm wrestling contest while the third character appears to be acting as the referee. The cartoon sentence and dialogue offered hints as to the relationship between the men, and discovering who-was-who was the key to a successful finish.

The final solve was an anagram consisting of 10-letters. The layout didn’t hide UNCLE quite enough, or maybe it was the discovery of the relationship in the cartoon that allowed me to decipher it so quickly. Either way, CRIED was right there for the finish resulting in an odd sounding but rather common idiom. Have a merry Monday, and I’ll see you right back here tomorrow!

  1. Good morning. Another busy day so this will be quick. Easy breezy from the words to the cartoon. Until tomorrow stay well.

  2. The teenage DRIVER decided to MIMIC his father one evening as he drove his car on a LONELY back road and took some chewing tobacco out of a POUCH and started munching on same.

  3. 🤦🏻The night he was chosen designated DRIVER, he CRIED UNCLE, after out of boredom, he decided to MIMIC his friends’ stomach POUCH, and ended up ostracized and LONELY. 🤦🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

    🤷🏻‍♂️He found the POUCH of magic beans and figured it could be
    The answer to his constant prayer to not be so LONELY…
    He hoped to MIMIC all the rest and fit in with the crowd
    And maybe become DRIVER…how he longed to feel unbowed…
    He tossed and turned then realized that it was all a dream,
    And lie there feeling all the worse…’twas nothing that it seemed…
    His sadness set in once again…and blankets made of wool
    He pulled over his head and sighed and once more CRIED UNCLE 🤷🏻‍♂️

  4. Hi all – Easy one today. A quick extra look to get DRIVER after seeing RIVER. In addition to the double letter trick, putting Y or LY at the end also helped with LONELY. Obvious answer.

    I hope you all have a great day and week!

    “On a LONELY road in Perth, the DRIVER decided to stop and MIMIC the Good Samaritan by returning the lost baby kangaroo to its mother’s POUCH”.

  5. Driver looked like derive at first to me,and the first puzzle word looked like could rather than cried,but lacking the o for could,cried uncle came quickly to mind.

  6. Easy one today which is always nice for a Monday morning. I think your idea of a story playing out over a week is a fun idea, Mike. Don’t know how difficult it would be for Jeff & David. Happy Monday everyone.

      • We’ve done it a couple of times with my family on vacation. Once when we went to Italy and once again, quite some time ago. It’s fun to figure out, but it is a lot more work. Kinda like gathering a bunch of guests to draw Jumbles.

        • I’m sure it’s a lot more work, Jeff. Now that you mention it, the Italian vacation ones weren’t that long ago and you were all eating dinner if I’m not mistaken.
          I just thought it would be cool to follow some of your characters for the week and see them encounter scenarios that would (hopefully) make the player feel more attached to them. 🙂

        • Hi Jeff. Tks for reminding us. The food police are going to kill me, but before I get back to cooking, I had to look through my files. I think I found it, the 2nd week of July in 2015, the puzzles were of you and your family in Italy. But I’m picturing another time, too, with you and Kathy and another couple, maybe David and Claire, seen eating at a restaurant in Italy? …Something about the waiter is triggering the memory. I’m going to take another look, as soon as I get a chance. And I think there was another vacation, to a tropical location…🇮🇹 🙋🏻‍♀️

        • I found it!…it was a 2-day story arc, January 4th and 5th, 2017. You and Kathy, David and Claire dining at the alfresco Cafe Roma in Italy. The answers were: “EATALY” and Full Agreement. Mangia! 🍝🍷🙋🏻‍♀️
