  1. Timing is everything when it comes to comedy. A decent punchline can leave your audience scratching their heads if it isn’t delivered at just the right moment. That’s the situation David found himself in this morning, but luckily he had a couple of great friends by his side to help him connect the dots. There’s nothing worse than that feeling of confusion and awkwardness when a joke goes right over your head and you unwittingly find yourself in the position of being “that guy.”

    We didn’t get any new clue words today. Three of the anagrams were new, but we’ve definitely seen BANCI a couple of times in the past. None of them stumped me in the least and I solved them all in order. My guess for today’s hardest word was ABATE, but it looks like the majority of you are voting for AMBUSH instead.

    Were you able to figure out who the characters were in today’s panel? That’s magician Mac King on the left, David L. Hoyt in the middle and Jumble Jeff to the right. Talk about a trio of trouble! The setting appears to be a cocktail lounge, but Mac has a show in Vegas so it’s most likely a comedy club. Nice shirt, Jeff! You didn’t waste any time picking up some merch from “The Tweedy Show” podcast.

    The final solve was an anagram consisting of 7 letters. The vowels slightly outnumbered the consonants by a count of 4 to 3. The layout was quite unusual in that the only letters being used were A and H. My solve started with a couple of HA’s followed by AHA for a well-timed finish. Have a terrific Tuesday and keep Jumbling!

  2. Here are 5 clever jokes that’ll have you in David’s shoes!

    5. How can you tell the difference between a chemist and a plumber? Ask them to pronounce “unionized.”
    4. Two sociologists are sitting by the pool. One turns to the other and asks, “Have you read Marx?” to which he replies, “Yes, it’s these darn wicker chairs.”
    3. A biologist, a chemist, and a statistician are out hunting. The biologist shoots at a deer and misses 5 feet to the left. The chemist takes a shot and misses 5 feet to the right. The statistician yells, “We got ’em!”
    2. A termite walks into a bar and asks “Is the bar tender here?”
    1. Did you hear about the man who got cooled to absolute zero? He’s 0K now.

    • Having been a fomer math/stat prof,I enjoyed the comment by the statistician,saying “he got the deer”,when the hunter missed the deer to the left and right.

    • 🎶All we are saying…is give Dave a chance…🎶 😉🙋🏻‍♀️

      5. ION got it right away!
      4. And I KARL success on this one too!
      3. STAT’s about right! (No pun intended)!
      2. Of COARSE he WOOD be!
      1. And my friend KELVIN says this one brings humor to a whole new (FAHREN)HEIT!

    • Hard to believe he’s been gone longer than he was alive.
      Hard to believe that much of the nation heard the news from Howard Cosell on Monday Night Football (there’s a story about that in The Athletic today.)
      “All you need is love.”
      🎵”All these places had their moments
      With lovers and friends I still can recall
      Some are dead and some are living
      In my life I’ve loved them all”🎵

  3. Good morning. If I didn’t know if I’d swear it was Monday. It couldn’t have been more easier. This one seemed like beginners 101. Breezed through the words and cartoon answer. Loved the video Angela. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  4. Hi Everyone –
    Love the song and man, Angela.
    I’m not with Paul on this one. I found Ambush tough and had to back in. And I didn’t get the answer quite right either, though I don’t think mine is bad – AAH, HA HA.

    • Good Morning, Caroline. Tks…I so feel the same. But today’s solve?…When David finally gets the joke that Mac King made, he says…”AHA” https://tinyurl.com/y4gur55y, acknowledging that it registered…And he follows it up with..HA-HA, his laugh…AAH isn’t wrong in itself, but AHA is more the norm…Another fun, witty gem of David’s! Wishing you a good one, Caroline. Be well and stay safe…🙋🏻‍♀️

      • I also wasn’t able to decide between aha and haa for the 3 letter first word.Definitely a strange group of letters w all H’s and A’s.Have a healthy and safe Tuesday out there.

  5. Good Morning, Everyone…I hope this finds you well…🗣🙋🏻‍♀️

    🗣 We all have CABIN fever…we wish it would ABATE,
    I feel a certain AMBUSH of the things I feel are great…
    There’s no more dining out for us, and I had placed it HIGHLY..
    But what we see today, I think is Jeff just acting slyly…
    There are no masks to be seen, just friends having a drink,
    The object of the puzzle is a joke at first don’t sink…
    But David finally gets it, and then Jeff says…”Raise the bar…
    You need to keep up David…be on time with ‘AHA-HA-HA’”! 🗣

    Are you a Tweedy fan? Want to own a T-shirt like Jeff’s and make a charitable donation at the same time? If so, check this out…Cheers! 🍹🍷🍺! https://tinyurl.com/y4z9v53z

  6. 💦 Until the rain and HIGHLY intense winds would ABATE, they were stuck in the CABIN, and they all said, “AHA-HA-HA”, when someone joked that it felt like nature’s AMBUSH…💦

    📚 He loved reading old Western tales, about CABINs and guns,
    Although a frequent AMBUSH really couldn’t be much fun…
    He did regard quite HIGHLY, the men who lived those days,
    Always alert and needing to ABATE constant forays
    Their lives by no means easy…sacrifices near and far…
    He wondered just how often they got to say…AHA-HA-HA…📚

  7. I always solve the anagrams before looking at the cartoon so wondered what I was going to do with all those A’s. Figured it out without difficulty. Hope all of you have a good day.

  8. ❓So look at today’s cartoon, and tell me what you see…
    Mac’s drink, the olive and the wedge…some kind of martini?
    And David’s? It looks like a beer…you clearly see a head,
    While Jeff’s enjoying wine today…a robust deep dark red…
    But what else can you see within? Something that’s fairly new?
    Look closely and then let me know if you noticed it too! ❓🙋🏻‍♀️

    • 🎵” Open up your eyes now, tell me what you see
      It is no surprise now, what you see is me”🎵

      No idea what you’re getting at though.

      • 🎶 Listen to me one more time, how can I get through? Can’t you try to see that I’m, trying to get to you? 🎶 😉

  9. AHA! Got it! My paper didn’t come today so I had to do the electronic version…. Still pretty easy.

  10. Hi all – AAAAHHH!! (Oh, sorry, got frightened by all those A’s and H’s.)
    AMBUSH took an extra look. Not much to do for the answer except rearrange the letters.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “Wyatt Earp decided to hole up in his CABIN and wait for the HIGHLY likely threat of an AMBUSH to ABATE.”
