  1. Happy Thursday everyone! Cartoons with superhero characters are some of my favorite panels that Jumble Jeff draws. We don’t get them all too often, but when we do they’re a real treat! When first looking at this one, I thought perhaps this gentleman was stuck in some sort of dream sequence where he had awoken to find a superhero in his room. The more I thought about it though, I figured it was just my brain trying to validate the scenario by bridging the gap between fantasy and reality. But this is the Jumble we’re dealing with here, and since it’s in the funny pages pretty much anything can happen!

    There were no new clue words today, but three of the anagrams just happened to be. SUPAE was the only one we’ve definitely seen before. And pretty recently too. My log indicates that David used it on 3/10/21 AND it was scrambled the same way it was today. He must be quite fond of that particular anagram! The only one I couldn’t see straight away was ANAOST, so it’ll be my pick for today’s hardest word.

    The setting for today’s cartoon is a bedroom where we see two Jumble characters having a conversation. Even though they’ve just woken up, she’s already more than half dressed! Although we don’t see the mask she references in her dialogue, there were a few other parts of her costume that were on display. Her Jumble “J” utility belt was the most obvious to me as she was holding it in her hand. I noted that the “J” in the midde of the buckle was a different font than some of the other “J’s” we’ve seen. The belt also had 11 holes in it, but her waist is so tiny she probably only needs three! Of course she carries a shield, and there was a giant “J” directly in the middle of it. Last but not least were her bracelets over on the bureau. They’re a bit smaller and more rounded than the Bracelets of Submission that Wonder Woman uses, so I couldn’t help but wonder what superpowers they have.

    The final solve was an anagram consisting of 10-letters. Four of them were vowels and six were consonants. GET and GO came to mind after noticing the G’s in the middle of the layout. With those words crossed out, UP and AND popped out at me with zero effort. All that was left for me to do was VILLAIN the blanks! Have a terrific Thursday everyone, and just keep GUMBINJL!

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

    🤦🏻‍♂️ Trying to EMBODY the true spirit of the choral group, he wanted to master the SONATA, but having to constantly PAUSE to GET UP AND GO answer the door was driving him BUGGY…🤦🏻‍♂️

    🤷🏻‍♂️ The limerick was a tongue twister, with baby BUGGY said,
    He’d wished he volunteered to work on the SONATA ‘stead…
    His constant need to PAUSE too much, he knew did not EMBODY,
    The best of what the troupe put out…he started feeling shoddy…
    His costume still ill-fitted…should he bow out of the show?
    Or with time now of the essence…does he just “GETUP” AND GO? 🤷🏻‍♂️

  3. Mig…LOL! See what you get when you ask me for advice? The wrong kind!! 🤦🏻‍♀️ My apologies, I picked up the wrong link, and I can’t edit…This is the one I meant to post. https://tinyurl.com/d6bbzurz Have a good one! 🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Heh, that is clearly more appropriate! Enjoyed the first one, though…. Even if I don’t get it I enjoy the J every day!!!

  4. Fairly easy Thursday Jumble, though I made it harder than it should be. Have unscrambled SONATA a few times before, easily….but today the letters were nicely scrambled so had an extra minute figuring out that word. Initially thought UP was last word…and figured it could be AND UP…until the brain finally kicked into high gear and brought the elusive answer to its knees !!!

  5. Sonata was troublesome at first as was embody,but having gotten all the letters to work with,the cartoon answer,despite the quotes,which usually give me problems,was a quick solve for a Thursday morning.

  6. Good morning. I choose Sonata for the hardest word. It took me an awful long time before i remembered seeing it before. Then the cartoon answer had me going to and trying to figure out what Angela see’s I think it helped because staring at the letters I finally came up with the solution. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Paul, you always make me smile! 🎶 Do you see what I see…? 🎶…😉… I saw Jumble Woman GET UP from bed, put on her costume…her GETUP…And she had that GET UP AND GO! (“ready”). It’s a regular hat trick this morning! 😉 Wishing you stay well and safe too, Brooklyn. Enjoy! 🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. All went well this morning. Sonata and embody have tripped me up in the past but not today. Cute drawing. Hope all of you have a good day.

    • SUPER job, Betty! I’m sure those are the two that most everyone didn’t see at first. Have a good one! 🙂

  8. Today was a laugh-getter. Got the anagrams, the solution, in short order. Then puzzled by “getup”. Know the phrase, use the phrase, but never considered it as one word, always two. So, I used the dictionary, found it can refer to clothing “makeup”. Stayed with it, pleased that I “re-solved” it, though it was disconcerting.

    • If getup were two words then they’d need a hyphen between them in order to be correct. That’s why the “punny” part was in quotes. The whole phrase get-up-and-go is actually hyphenated. Great job on figuring it out!

  9. Hi all – Got the words with EMBODY needing a couple of tries. No idea about the answer until I saw the letters; then AND GO appeared leaving the pun.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “The music director’s decision to EMBODY new technology to the fullest was shown to have its problems when the BUGGY score-printing software caused the orchestra to PAUSE at a point in the SONATA where none was intended.”

    • I know what you mean about EMBODY, Steve. All I kept thinking about when I saw it was the brand BEYOND MEAT! I guess that’s why David is referred to as the man who puzzles America. Great scrambles today, and your sentence was top-notch as always. Be well! 🙂
