AFTER SEEING HOW WELL HIS HAIR TRANSPLANT TURNED OUT, HIS WIFE SAID – – –
FOO HAY UTO SFT = HATS OFF TO YOU
Happy Thursday everyone. Just look at the luscious mane on that guy. It looks like the miracles of science really came through for him! For most other men it’s a completely different story. Approximately 25% of the male population start losing their hair at some point during their twenties. The tale of “Baldilocks and the Three Hairs” continues for another 15-20 years before your untamed curls vanish into thin hair. You could visit your Doctor and ask for some pills or maybe even take a stroll to your local drugstore and buy some foam to squirt on your scalp. The fact of the matter is that you’re only delaying the inevitable. And you have no one to thank other than good old mom and dad. Genetics truly is a hairy thing!
There weren’t any new clue words this morning but all of the anagrams are coming up as such. I managed to work through them at a pretty good clip up until I bumped into UNTOLD. At first I tried to make words beginning or ending with OUT, but all that did was shave precious seconds off my solve time. The TO at the front of the layout was so obvious that I didn’t think of trying it until I had finished my wild-goose chase. With all of that said, it’s now quite obvious that it’ll be my pick for today’s hardest word. All of the solutions have shown up over the past three or so years with SHAKY being the oldest and MISFIT the most recent. FLOOR and UNTOLD both landed somewhere in the middle to round off today’s quartet.
This dude is so excited — and I couldn’t be happier for him! He’s now free to stow away the trucker-style hat that he’s been using to hide his solar panel for the past however many years. And the missus most certainly agrees with his incredible transformation. Just look at the smile on her face as she runs her hand through those freshly-planted folliciles. Sinfully delicious! My favorite detail had to be the look on his face though. I really enjoyed how Jeff had the pupils at the top of his eyes so that he could stare at the party going on up there. It looks like this guy just found a new hobby!
The final solve was an anagram consisting of 12-letters. I thought the layout did a fine job of hiding the solution contained within. The visual clue of the HAT along with HA being so close together really got the bald rolling. TO was also paired neatly together so I decided that it’d make for a dandy 2-letter word. The remaining F’s gave me OFF and YOU was right there for the finish. The payoff was clever and definitely deserved a chuckle or two. Here’s hoping tomorrow’s game doesn’t have me pulling my own hair out. Best for a terrific Thursday!
