DJEGU = JUDGE

FIYNT = NIFTY

MARHEP = HAMPER

CDROOT = DOCTOR


CARTOON ANSWER:

THE GROUP OF LIONS THEY CONSIDERED TO BE THEIR FAMILY WAS THEIR – – –

JD NIY APE DOR = PRIDE AND JOY

Happy Wednesday Jumble fans!  Contrary to popular belief, the lion isn’t the largest feline in the world.  When fully grown, the Siberian tiger is just a hair bigger — reaching 12.5’ in length and weighing up to 650 pounds vs the lions 10’ length and weight of 500 pounds.  So which kitty would reign supreme in a duel?  Pretty much the only advantage a lion would have over a tiger would be the fact that lions tend to hunt in groups.  Tigers are solitary hunters, and a pack of two or more lions could easily overpower a single mature tiger if need be.  The most fascinating fact I found about lions is their speed.  When chasing their prey, a lion can run the length of a football field in just under six seconds!  

The King of the Jungle Jumble gave us a new clue word this morning.  Try as I might, I couldn’t locate NIFTY in any previous puzzles!  All of the anagrams returned as being new, but none of them sent me pack to the drawing board.  Seeing ROOT spelled out in DOCTOR gave me a moment of paws so it’ll be my pick for today’s hardest scramble.

ROAR-some cartoon of a group of lions getting ready for a catnap!  Lions spend anywhere between 16-20 hours a day resting.  They have few sweat glands so they conserve energy during the day and tend to be more active at night when it’s cooler.  This particular pack (otherwise known as a PRIDE) of lions look particularly well fed.  Each of the lions had a unique facial expression which ended up being my favorite detail.

The final solve was 11-letters in length.  Noticing the J and Y in the layout brought JOY instantly to mind, and the rest of the answer flowed easily from the remainder to seal the deal.  A quick and easy solve for our hump day.  On to tomorrow!  Until then, be well and enjoy the day! //Mike

  4. IF YOU PLAY DAVID’S GIANT JUMBLE CROSSWORDS, AND AREN’T SET UP FOR AUTOMATIC UPDATES, PLEASE NOTE THAT HE’S ADDED 60 NEW PUZZLES TO THE APP..🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. Joining others in an easy Humpday solve…..a quick puzzle look and you just had to know PRIDE was gonna be a part of it. It’s days like this that raise our batting averages. Enjoyed the song.

  6. Another vote for Stevie Ray Vaughan’s “Pride and Joy” but great memories of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” by the Tokens as well. Doctor what’s it mean that Nifty came so quickly because of a bar by that name in Old Omaha and can you Judge whether that will Hamper my well being? Love the quick solves. Until next time Jumble friends and fiends.

  7. Good morning. Another continuation from Monday. You blink and the words were done as well as a blind solve. Somehow I feel like it’s children week. It’s been that easy. Love your song choice Angela. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Good Morning, Paul. Tk you. Hoping you’re staying well and safe too..Have a great day…🦁🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. Those beasts with the powerful stride
    Their feelings they just could not hide
    “In this hot, dry weather
    We lions stick together
    And we’re all very proud of our pride!”

    • Hi Helen…🙋🏻‍♀️

      🦁 Pride of lions our topic today,
      They are lying here, every which way…
      Seemingly so content,
      In their leisure time spent…
      Joyfully thinking about their next prey! 🦁

      🦁 Happy lions all lying in bliss…
      Both the mister lions and the miss…
      And their joy they can’t hide,
      They’re just loving their pride…
      The picture of togetherness! 🦁

      🦁 So the pride of these lions we see,
      Lying ‘round in the jungle carefree…
      And they bask in the sun,
      ‘Fore their day has begun…
      Where they’re called on to act quite beastly…🦁

      🦁 With the kings of the beasts lying round,
      True contentment is definitely found…
      Nothing do they abhor,
      And along with each roar…
      Lion’s pride in such joy does abound! 🦁

  9. My wife and I visited an antique store last Sunday and I found a Jumble board game sitting on the shelf. It was priced at $8 and had a sticker on it that said it was complete. If you zoom in you can see that the previous owner had quite a bit of trouble coming up with DUNCE! LOL! The puzzle on the cover is from 5/2/69.

  10. Solved the anagrams and cartoon answer in record time this morning, no lion. It’s been an easy week so far. Happy first day of Fall to all! 🍁🍁

    • Thanks for the reminder, Betty. It’s been getting down to the 50’s at night and will have to get much colder before I turn the heat on! 😂

  11. Today’s Puzzle brings back a quiz on my school Blackboard matching group names with animals. Some examples – a Pack of Dogs, a string of Ponies, a Covey of Quail, a Murder of Crows, a Streak of Tigers and today’s Group of Lions. Thanks for the memories. Ann

    • Let’s not forget a Gang of Elk, and a Troop of Gorillas…It definitely gets crowded in the Animal Kingdom! Have a good night, Ann. Be well and stay safe…🦁🙋🏻‍♀️
