  1. Good Morning, Everyone…0️⃣1️⃣2️⃣ IT’S PRIME TIME 0️⃣1️⃣2️⃣

    🎶 So I might be crazy, but I don’t put nothing before you…Without you to hold, this life don’t mean nothing, no…And nothing comes close to being with you…’Cause you come SECOND TO NONE…Baby, SECOND TO NONE…🎶…”Second to None” – Daley 2017 https://tinyurl.com/y4n6cbny

    1️⃣ Just as OZONE is a gas that’s comprised of just three atoms,
    Today we have three numbers front and center…up and at ‘em…
    And instead of hanging out like friends, perhaps go for a SNACK,
    There looking prime for EXODUS…and never looking back…
    Like adding BUTANE to the mix, they’re throwing lots of shade,
    And Number 1 is heard saying “Stand back, I got it made”…
    Reality will tell us that since coming after Naught…
    Def makes him second in the line…it’s how we’ve all been taught…
    And as for Number 2 you see, well granted, 1 proceeds…
    So here again we see it’s true, ‘cause 1 has got the lead
    A double little play on words…David’s just having fun…
    Proving that 1’s big ego… remains primed SECOND TO NONE!2️⃣

    Ok…We got old words, new anagrams, a 0 and a 1 depicted as men, and a 2 drawn as a woman. And a witty solution with a 1- 2 punch! ….You gotta love that double whammy…
    …And that’s a wrap, Folks… Short and sweet, and easy as 1-2-3…Or 0-1-2…if you want to get technical…Have a good 1, Everybody. Be well and stay safe out there…0️⃣1️⃣2️⃣

  2. 🚬 Sitting reading an article about the OZONE layer, which he considered SECOND TO NONE, he reached for his BUTANE lighter before remembering that he’d taken a mass EXODUS from cigarettes, and instead got up and went looking for a SNACK…🚬

    🦠 The lesson dealt with gases…OZONE and then BUTANE,
    He couldn’t wait to get through it cause next was Acid Rain…
    He really didn’t enjoy school, he dreamt of EXODUS,
    But he needed the credits, so he may as well not fuss
    There’s twenty minutes still to go, and then he’ll get a SNACK
    Before he gets his stuff together and begins to pack
    He’s glad the week is over, he’s dying for some fun…
    The weekend lies ahead, and for him it’s SECOND TO NONE 🦠

  3. Exodus got me again,my recollection is that it stumped me before.Having gotten that anagram,by hook or by crook,the cartoon solution was a given.

    • Good Morning, Professor. EXODUS always seems to garner its share of the voting when it comes to being a stumper. Here’s the last time we’ve seen it, just a few months ago in April…

      …And I agree, the solution was an easy, breezy one. Be well, Prof and stay safe out there. 1️⃣🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. Good morning. I seem to remember this once before. Could be wrong but sure looks like it, that’s why I just had a slight pause on Exodus. Other than that it was clear sailing right through the cartoon answer. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Good Morning, Brooklyn. We’ve had a whole lot of number puzzles in the past, and it looked familiar to me too…So I went searching, and this one, that we just had in March might be what you’re thinking of…

      Hope you’re enjoying your morning Paul…Be well and stay safe out there…1️⃣🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. With today being National Red Wine Day, I thought I’d share an article with you. Being Italian, and considering Red Wine to be among the extended food groups, I don’t need much encouragement to indulge. But besides enjoying it simply for what it is, you may be surprised to learn of the many health benefits that come with that goodness of grapes in a goblet.. So, Saluti, Cin-Cin, Cento Anni…Enjoy! 🍷🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. Very cute and funny one. Exodus didn’t trouble me much this time, but I had to work with possible endings to get Butane. Thanks for the wine info, Angela.

    • Hi Caroline. YVW…Yes, the number puzzles always seem to come with that bit of whimsy…they’re very clever, word and cartoon alike. And as for BUTANE, it’s definitely a great anagram. Have a good one, Caroline. Be well and stay safe out there. 2️⃣🙋🏻‍♀️

    • LOL! As long as you enjoyed it, Jensen…that’s all that counts. Have a good one…Be well and keep safe. 1️⃣🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. Clever puzzle again today. I always enjoy the number ones. Like Caroline, I paused at butane even though I know it has been around before however once I got that one, the cartoon answer fell nicely into place. Wishing all of you a pleasant Friday.

    • Hi Betty…Definitely a clever one! Wishing you a pleasant day too…Be well and stay safe out there. 2️⃣🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. Hi all – Despite having seen it several times, I got totally stuck on BUTANE (after seeing UNBEAT, BANTU and “AUNT BE” from The Andy Griffith Show.) The other answer letters showed SECOND TO NONE and I backed in from there.

    I’m surprised more people had trouble with EXODUS than BUTANE. With there being an X in there, and having seen the album cover of the soundtrack from the movie so many times, it just jumps out at me.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “When his electricity went out, his attempt to heat up a SNACK using a stack of Sterno cans and a tank of BUTANE caused an EXODUS from his apartment building and blew a hole in the OZONE layer.”

  9. I too got stuck on EXODUS. Does that mean I should leave? Nah, too fun here, especially the number puzzles. At first glance I thought KNASC unjumbled to SCANK but that didn’t seem right…. All around this was a tough one for me. Have fun today and don’t play with matches…….

    • Hey Mig…I’m glad you’re having fun here! Have a good one and be safe out there…1️⃣🙋🏻‍♀️
