THE RESTAURANT’S FOOD AND SERVICE KEPT GETTING WORSE, AND CUSTOMERS – – –
EW PRE EF DU = WERE FED UP
Happy Wednesday everyone! No new clue words were served up this morning, but we had three new anagrams to tickle our Jumble tastebuds. FROFET was our repeat, and it was also the one that took me the longest to get. Since it took a fare amount of time to sort through, it’ll be my pick for today’s hardest anagram. All of the anagrams were listed in descending alphabetical order which is the tenth occurrence (so far) this year.
Today’s cartoon brings us to a diner where we see a couple of patrons receiving their orders. The place is virtually empty, and we can tell by the single ticket on the order wheel that there’s only one other order in queue. Her sandwich is burnt beyond recognition and his burger was smooshed and only came with two french fries. Noticeably missing on the table were their beverages, silverware, salt and pepper shakers and my favorite condiment — ketchup! My favorite detail was the cook in the kitchen who’s apparently more interested in his text messages than the raging grease fire going on beside him. The visual clues of poor service and food quality were echoed in their dialogue, but they weren’t enough for a blind solve.
The final solve was an anagram consisting of nine letters. With nothing much coming to mind, I decided to solve the two-letter word first. WE and UP were all that I saw, so the latter was the only logical choice. With those letters crossed out, WERE came next followed by FED for the finish. On to tomorrow! Until then, be well and enjoy the day.
