  1. They don’t get any STINKIER than that, folks! It would have been a bit more PUNGENT if the guys had used SINUS instead of SIGN US, but you won’t hear me complaining. There’s nothing wrong with a little wordplay to change things UP every once in a while.

    There were no new clue words today, but three of the scrambles returned as such. GTURN is the only one we’ve definitely encountered before. I had a little trouble coming up with an answer for SULSEN, but I did get it. My problem was that I REEKognized it as SELSUN which is an anti-dandruff shampoo. Since it was the only one that seemed like it could morph into several different words, I’ll go ahead and make it my PICK for today’s hardest anagram.

    Fun cartoon of four medical students trying to decide if a particular seminar is right for them. The SIGN on the wall identifies the seminar as KNOW YOUR NOSE and the fella giving it is named Dr. Green. The time and day were also given which was 9:00 am on Thursday. Underneath the sign appears to be a tablet with the words ‘Register NOW!’ being displayed. With “SIGN US UP” being the solution, I didn’t catch on to the fact that the tablet may have actually been a clue. Maybe some action lines around his finger would have helped, but I’m not too sure it would have been enough to help me SNIFF out the answer any sooner. My favorite detail was the cell phone in the hand of the young man with glasses. Zooming in on the screen shows an image of his calendar. At the top of the screen, and just a bit off-SCENTER is the word EVENTS with the hours of 8, 9, 12, 1 and 2 RUNNING down the side. Numbers 10 and 11 were covered by his thumb. There were scribbles indicating events in the hours of 12, 1 and 2, but luckily for him, 9 am looks to be WIDE open!

    The final solve was an anagram consisting of eight letters. Three of them were vowels and five were consonants. The U’s in the layout brought UP and US to mind, and SIGN was easily PLUCKED from the remainder to seal the deal. David and Jeff really NOSE how to PICK ‘em! Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone, and just keep MGJLNBUI!

  2. GRUNT = Last used on 05/01/19 as SAME ANAGRAM
    UNITY = Last used on 09/30/20 as TINYU
    SYRUPY = Last used on 11/22/20 as PUYYRS
    UNLESS = Last used on 12/13/19 as SLUENS

    GTURN = Used on 05/01/19

  3. After I solved this I snorted and my nose ran.
    Another easy one. I did learn that having allergies sucked during a pandemic………………
    Now I go to the grocery store and see the pandemic evolution: nostrils are emerging from masks and many are not wearing masks!
    Still a mild week in SoCal. Next week, however……………….ugh!
    Have fun and stay safe kids!!!

  4. Good Morning, Everyone…I hope this finds you well…

    👃🏻A stuffy nose can be no joke…it’s def nothing to sneeze at,
    And UNITY is here amongst these med students who see that…
    When breathing feels all SYRUPY, you try to breathe but GRUNT,
    So any seminar that helps…a sufferer would hunt…
    UNLESS you’ve never felt the bane of being so stuffed up?
    You’d never get the clamoring of saying SIGN US UP! 👃🏻

    …So is it just me, or was anyone else expecting “SINUS” UP?

    • Definitely! Don’t know why, as it adds a pun to the mix which is always more interesting.

      • Hi Helen. TBT? I was surprised to see that it wasn’t. Once I saw that there weren’t any quotation marks…I was a little disappointed. I got the “sign” connection with the “sign” on the wall…but I agree that not using SINUS was a lost opportunity! Oh well…who NOSE! Have a good day, Helen. Enjoy! 👃🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. 🤦🏻‍♂️ He had to GRUNT at the false display of SYRUPY UNITY being displayed, since he knew that UNLESS these participants were being paid, they wouldn’t have such a willingness to say…SIGN US UP. 🤦🏻‍♂️

    🎪 The drink was just too SYRUPY, UNLESS you’re big on sweets,
    He wasn’t, nor was he a fan of these carts on the streets…
    The vendors looked for backers, but a GRUNT fell from his mouth,
    The idea of investors? Well he definitely had his doubts
    This sidewalk fair, a new idea… but he’d go home to sup…
    Not one willing to join in, when others said…SIGN US UP! 🎪

  6. Clever, clever guys. I gave an admiring Grunt after solving the puzzle and, Unless I am being too Syrupy, I felt a wave of Unity with my Jumble comrades. Maybe someone should Sign Us Up for a competition versus other Jumble groups. No songs came to mind until Angela mentioned “Every Breathe You Take,” and now that earworm has nested. Heat returns bigly to the Great Plains today but it’s still cool to see the big College World Series crowds in O-Town. Be good.

  7. No immediate blind solve of puzzle cartoon…but then a quick peak of the words showed multiple “U”‘s might be possible, which gave me US and UP. Then the last cylinder fired which gave me SIGN. All anagrams solved expediently. It was a good Jumble morning.

  8. I disappointed myself for not blind solving the cartoon, as I popped my generic Allegra, this morning! 🤧 Soon will be leaving for the stores and Kleenex is definitely an item on my list! I know, too much information, right? I’m sorry! 😞 Have a Wonderful Wednesday, Kids! 🤗

  9. Good morning. Thank goodness for Monday’s. No problem with either the words or cartoon answer. Perfect song choice for today’s jumble Angela. We take a simple act of breathing as nothing big when for many in life it’s a constant struggle. I thank God for my many blessings. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

      • Good morning. Rotfl. Had a senior moment. Thanks for the up date. Lol. You have me in hysterics. Thanks.

        • Well…Phew! We can both BREATHE a sigh of relief! For a moment there I figured you were testing me! Have a good one, Paul. Enjoy! 😘🙋🏻‍♀️

  10. Wipe out Wednesday,as papers were not delivered,then going online,I was stumped by grunt and unless,as well as by the cartoon solution.Though ‘up’ looked like a possibility for one of the 2 letter words.

  11. Other than thinking that the final answer would be “sinus” up, everything went well this morning puzzle wise. Hope all of you have a good day.

  12. Hi all – Well, the third word had to end in ‘Y’, so that was just a matter of finding SYRUP to put in front of it. I guessed the answer without looking at the letter layout and was surprised to see it wasn’t a quoted pun of “SINUS” UP. (I suspect a lot of people are going to say this.) (And just a reminder that I write these before I read anything on the blog)

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “The GRUNT in the molasses factory realized that he’d end up with SYRUPY lungs UNLESS he sought UNITY with his co-workers for better conditions.”
