Jumble Answers for 03/10/2020












Happy Tuesday everyone!  How silly of me it was to confuse “hand gestures” with “sign language.”  I almost mistakenly brushed them off as being one and the same.  It’s not all that big of a leap when you stop and think about it though.  After reading a few articles on the matter, I’ve come to realize just how broad — and complex — the art of signing truly is, and how easily a series of gestures can be misinterpreted by those that are hearing impaired.

Imagine for a moment that you need to tell a deaf person that they’re going to be late for their ride to the airport.  You might put your arms out to the side and then quickly point to your wrist.  The two gestures might seem universally recognizable and easily understood, but for all the deaf person knows you could be inquiring of them what time their flight leaves.  Signs are a part of language, and they easily connect with other signs to form an infinite amount of thoughts and sentences.  It’d be nearly impossible to thoroughly explain ourselves by simply using gestures alone.

Today’s solve was a little too automatic for my liking.  From the words to to the payoff, everything solved without a hitch.  We’ve encountered GUHDO and CCROSH before, but you probably didn’t recognize them because it’s been quite awhile since they last showed up!  Of the pack, SCORCH incinerated the competition and wound up being my pick for today’s hardest anagram.

Cool cartoon of a visibly frustrated sign language teacher.  Jeff easily pulled off the gag by surrounding her with six-squirming students.  They all seem to want to be the first to impress her with what they’ve just learned.  She attempts to maintain order by reminding the students that they must each wait their turn, but her patience seems to running a bit thin at this point.  Since she exclaimed “one at a time,” I’d assume the students aren’t completely deaf and just might be learning sign language to communicate with another classmate.  I bet the signing chart of the alphabet on the wall becomes an invaluable resource if the students forget some of their letters!

Our final solve was an anagram consisting of 12-letters.  Even though it was 4-letters longer than yesterday’s layout the overly leading nature of the sentence made it an instant solve.  It doesn’t get any easier than that!  Have a terrific Tuesday, and I’ll see you right back here tomorrow.

  1. Good Morning, Everyone! Have a great day! 🙋🏻‍♀️

    🤾🏻‍♀️Not having the DOUGH she used to, since her portfolio took a serious SCORCH from the failing market, she decided to be FRUGAL and quit the gym, since she could always do a LUNGE or two at home…even though there she had HER HANDS FULL…🤾🏻‍♀️

    🥧The heat within the kitchen really began to SCORCH,
    And wanting to be FRUGAL…she let air in from the porch
    She’d wait for air conditioning, especially with this DOUGH,
    She didn’t want to chance that maybe then it wouldn’t grow…
    The wind blew the door open, she tried her best to LUNGE,
    And then she saw the cake slipping…well so much for that sponge!
    She wondered should she start again?…Her mind a push and pull
    But other chores awaited…for sure she had HER HANDS FULL 🥧

  2. Good morning. I don’t know. I see the majority didn’t have trouble with the words but in my case,I had a heck of a time with Frugal and Scorch. So much so that I went to the cartoon and after a minute I had the blind solve. Crossing off the letters to the answer left me with the six l needed to get both words. After a short while I got them both. I actually had frugal earlier but didn’t realize I did. I’m giving myself a big pat on the back for sticking with it and not giving up. Until tomorrow stay well.

  3. No problem for me with the anagrams or final cartoon solution.Given yesterday’s easy Jumble,we may be in for an easy week.

  4. Paused at scorch, those two c’s in a row looked weird. However, figured it out and the rest of the puzzle words and the cartoon answer were quick solves. Happy Tuesday to all.

  5. Hi all – “G”, “U” think a lot of the words had the same letters today? No real problem – unlike HAIRDO and OVERDO, the first word was not HUGDO. Paused a bit at the last word, but I had put CH together and happened to try SC as a prefix and that showed it. Instant answer.

    Have a great day, everyone!

    “The FRUGAL chef saved a lot of DOUGH on her new kitchen but wound up often having to LUNGE for the gas knob lest the used stove SCORCH the omelets.”
