  1. Here are 10 Fun Facts about: PAPER

    10. Over the past 20 years, global consumption of paper has increased from 92 million tons per year to 208 million tons per year; an increase of 126%.
    9. For every ton of paper produced, 380 gallons of oil is used.
    8. 1 pine tree will yield approximately 80,500 sheets of paper.
    7. Recycling one ton of paper saves approximately 17 trees.
    6. Approximately 13 oz. of water is used to produce one sheet of copy paper.
    5. Roughly 42% of the global wood harvest will be used to produce paper products.
    4. The average American will use approximately 700 pounds of paper products per year.
    3. The paper industry is the 4th largest contributor of greenhouse gas emissions in the US.
    2. Approximately 23% of landfill waste is paper and cardboard.
    1. The maximum number of times you can fold a single sheet of paper in half is 7! (You better have eaten your Wheaties to get fold #7. It works on any size paper. Try it!)

  2. I’ve always noted that these two words, STATIONERY and STATIONARY, were so similar – they differ by a single letter. Or what do pencil and paper have to do with not going anywhere? This Jumble neatly tied them together. There is a shadow solution, and this time it involves the Russians. The second word is INPUT but it could also be PUTIN. If that’s the case, there is no one word solution but there is a two word solution TSAR PAYOUT. Or what kind of payout did getting rid of the Tsar result in? In Putin, by way of Lenin, Stalin, Khrushchev, Gorbachev, and Yeltsin.

    • Jim…I too always noted how these words are so similar, and how they’re so often mistaken for one another…but I’m not PUTIN it into words like you are…Mine’s a little more PENsive! 😉🙋🏻‍♀️

      ✍🏻 She walked out of the book store, some RUBGY books in hand,
      And saw an ACTUAL Stationery shop thinking how grand…
      She peered into the window, and thought it looked sublime,
      The salesgirls not dressed SPORTY, but in outfits of a time…
      She’d speak with them for INPUT, how their shop remained so quaint,
      The days of writing letters almost gone…her big complaint
      And had to laugh when one of them said…”Know what makes us worry?
      When people can’t distinguish Stationery from STATIONARY”! ✍🏻

  3. As we honor the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King today, let’s hope that his message of non-violence resonates throughout our country during these turbulent times. “Nonviolence is a powerful and just weapon. which cuts without wounding and ennobles the man who wields it. It is a sword that heals.” – Martin Luther King Jr.
    …Let us all wield a sword that heals…🇺🇸🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. Good morning. Putting Russian conspiracies aside, I had no problem with the words or cartoon answer. Thank goodness for Monday’s. The cartoon was a blind solve seeing the paper articles and the ladies remark at the door. Clever, just like Mikes facts. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  5. Happy MLK day to one and all.An easy Monday Jumble day with only a brief pause on rugby that looked like grubby,and actual.But then the stationary ‘stationery ‘ store was an obvious cartoon solution.

  6. I first solved INPUT as UNPIT. When I tried to solve the answer, I had a U that was a problem. Statuary didn’t work. I rechecked UNPIT, dug myself out of the hole, and got INPUT. Unpitted is a word, but not UNPIT. Makes sense…

    It must be Monday.

    • Dennis…You make a valid point, though. UNPIT is an acceptable word for games like Scrabble and Words With Friends. I know, I’ve tried it…But it’s NOT in the Merriam Webster Dictionary. One of those rare “iffy” words I guess. 🤷🏻‍♀️

    • Oh, there is a solution (with wrong word division) if you use UNPIT instead of INPUT. You get ON STATUARY. Perhaps some of these protesters last summer stuck this owner’s products on some of these Confederate statues they were taking down.

  7. I remained motionless while solving today’s jumble. I only PUTIN a small amount of thought. I didn’t need to have a kitchen debate to get it! Enjoyed Mike’s comments as usual, glad he is back……

  8. 🚴🏻‍♀️ Looking for some INPUT regarding RUGBY, she sat upon her SPORTY new STATIONARY bike, and read from a book written by an ACTUAL Rugby star…🚴🏻‍♀️

    ⛴ “The book has to be ACTUAL”, is what somebody said,
    “The word you want is Factual”, said he, shaking his head
    He wore a SPORTY RUGBY shirt, bought just for the occasion,
    His interview with players of the game’s kick-ball persuasion
    Traveling to get some INPUT, gingerly he board the ferry…
    And wondered why it bounced so much still being STATIONARY! ⛴

  9. Hi all – Easy Monday puzzle with just a slight pause at RUGBY, and of course Stationery/Stationary is always good for a classic pun.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “The RUGBY team demanded ACTUAL INPUT into the SPORTY advertising logos displayed on their uniforms.”
