  1. Good Morning, Everyone… 🥪 A LITTLE RYE HUMOR 🥪

    🎶 Matzo ball soup, a coffee, corned beef on rye, tomato with slaw on rye…Misto on rye, with Russian…Four in the morning. (What’ll you have?) well, I’m in the mood for a corned beef on rye…With a tomato and some coleslaw on the side…🎶 “The Deli Song -Corned Beef on Wry” – Dean Friedman 1978 https://tinyurl.com/yv3eynxz

    🥪The House today is different…we’ve seen a STUNT or two,
    A true mixture of STYLE now, with faces all anew…
    Some Reps they do EXCEED our hopes, some others just seem bland,
    But with this government “AGENCY”…we definitely do grandstand!
    And here today we see some Reps it’s lunch that’s now in session…
    The pun is great…and so’s the food…at this “DELEGATE-TESSEN”! 🥪

    So…On the MENU this morning? No new words, and one old anagram. YACENG has graced our pages before, albeit WEIGH in the past…1966 through 2005…But all the anagrams went down easily. The solve? I’m a New Yorker, born and BREAD. DELIS are synonymous with New York. And then to have our cartoon SERVED UP with Jeff’s SPICY dialogue? Especially the “pickle” aSIDE? Let’s face it, Folks… I ATE it up! Our DELEGATES lunched at the “DELEGATE-TESSEN”! Brilliant! Pass me those pickles!

    Ok…we’re at a D.C. DELICATESSEN…And I could be wrong, but I’m taking a shot..Not that I’d HAM it up…not at a DELI! ..At the counter picking up a sandwich from the Deli Man we have Marcy Kaptur, (D-OH)…And seated at the table, all looking to be wearing a pin of our flag…From upper left and going clockwise… Sporting her signature Teuila flower in her hair, we have Aumua Amata Radewagen (R-AS), Michael F.Q. San Nicolas (D-GU), Barbara Lee (D-CA), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Kat Cammack (R-FL), and (the jury’s still out on this one…but what the heck), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA). …To be FRANK, nicely bipartisan..And from what’s hanging above the slicing machine to what so appetizingly MEATS the eye in the showcase, the food’s all so appealing. There’s just one thing that LOX a little odd to me. Mr San Nicolas doesn’t appear to have a plate…Maybe something went aRYE…

    So…There you have it Folks…Done. Be well, stay safe…and if you’re anything like me, it’s near to impossible to resist good Deli food. I do sometimes try to cut down on the amount of meat I consume…but hey… I’m hardly one to go COLD TURKEY…🥪🙋🏻‍♀️

    PS: Please note that this isn’t the place for any political controversy…so we ask that you refrain from making any comments in that regard. They’ll only be deleted. Thank you. 🇺🇸🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 💸 The owners of the DELICATESSEN signed with an AGENCY to update their out of STYLE decor…but asked that they not EXCEED the budget by pulling a flamboyant STUNT or two…💸

    🥪 He loved to name the sandwiches, creative sort was he,
    And people told him he should work at an ad AGENCY…
    He had a unique STYLE, needing no STUNT to succeed,
    And time went by and more and more his ads proved to EXCEED…
    His boss’s expectations…They def loved the “Russian Dressin’”
    The menu read: “We ‘nude’ you’d get this at our DELICATESSEN! 🥪

  3. It’s Friday start of the weekend ! We just got another 2 in of snow , but the sun is supposed to full all day , yea !! Todays anagrams were right there , then when I got the letters to the jumble it became politically challenging ! The word delicatessen came to mind , but the G didn’t have a home , then I saw DELEGATE ! Oh wow ! TESSEN and there it was ! Well that made me hungry , so I went to the deli and voted for a sandwich and and ate it !! Everyone have a great start to the weekend !!

  4. It’s a partial credit this morning with no blind solve. Saw DELEGATE in the letters but somehow couldn’t figure out second play on words. Congrats to the high achievers out there. Still cold in Central Texas but no precip. Stay warm and see you tomorrow.

  5. 🍞 I’m surprised in a place such as this,
    No one’s dining on a hot knish…
    I could eat them for days,
    Baked to that golden glaze…
    They’re a savory, delicious dish! 🍞

    🫔 We see Reps from both sides of the aisle,
    Having lunch at a deli, old style…
    Whether sandwich or wrap,
    Here today there’s no flap…
    Hot pastrami makes anyone smile! 🫔

    🥒 With a break from the every day grind,
    Out to lunch this here group we do find…
    Be it coleslaw or fries,
    And corned beef I’d surmise…
    Or those pickles soaked in garlic brine! 🥒

    • Not often I’m stumped on the solve but the two “t”s led me astray. I was thinking of “essen” German for “to eat” but did not think to add a “t” to the beginning and tried to place both “t”s elsewhere. Too late for a limerick now. Yours are very clever Angela. You certainly know a typical American deli menu, somewhat foreign to me!! I’m not a connoisseur!

      • Hi Helen, thank you. Delicatessens are NY staples, although they’re quickly becoming a dying breed. There’s no NY’er worth his weight in pickles 🥒 who isn’t familiar with one! And as I was just saying, David doesn’t use any foreign and/or medical words in any of his puzzles, so going down that road could only lead to a dead end….But it’s never too late for a Limerick! Have a good one Helen, stay warm! 🍞🙋🏻‍♀️

        • Well this is a very late limerick!

          If it’s what the deleg-ate
          Something tasty on a plate
          From a New York deli
          A very full belly
          That could lead to being overweight!

          All that salt and sodium!!

      • Hi Helen. I have that very sign “ESSEN” above my oven. I’ve had it ever since my surprise 80th birthday party from a German restaurant out in Long Island. Take care.

  6. Good morning. Easy words again but once I saw those words in quotation marks I took the high road. No way would I have gotten the answer. I gave up after only a minute. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Good Morning, Paul..And I’m sure you’ve eaten at a deli a gazillion times! 😉 Have a good one, Paul…Stay well, safe…and warm! 🥪🙋🏻‍♀️

    • I’m more stubborn (or have more time ;-), but I find non-words to be somewhat contemptible. At least for me, the “DELEGATE” part came easy, but I spent time trying to make an actual word out of the left-overs — I finally caved and created the best sounding non-word: “TESSEN.”

      • I agree. It should have been delegate-essen, since “essen” is an actual word in German, and the “t” sound was already in “delegate”.

          • Not to be concerned Raymond…you won’t find one used! Enjoy your day! 🙋🏻‍♀️

        • Anonymous…No foreign words would ever be used in a Jumble puzzle, and the solve was a pun, in quotes, something synonymous with the Jumble for years. Plus since the puzzle dealt with Delegates, it stands to reason that it would be spelt correctly. NYOEJ your day!

  7. Great cartoons the past couple days. Today’s words were a breeze…but the cartoon took awhile to solve….even though it was clearly a “DELI”. I saw the words LEGEND and STATES that could have been part of the answer and that threw me off track. Finally it dawned on me that DELEGATE was an obvious part of the answer. Looking forward to it “heating” up to 60 tomorrow in Texas. Stay warm and have a good weekend!

  8. There is a difference between Representatives and Delegates. There are currently 6 delegates in the House. I’ve drawn them all. Not sure who’s getting the sandwich at the counter.

  9. Anagrams came quickly,but not seeing delegate as a partial answer,and thinking delicatessen,I still was stumped by the cartoon.Probably a case of ” brain freeze” due to the sub zero temps.

  10. No problem with the anagrams but the cartoon answer stumped me this morning. Knew the fact that American Samoa and Guam were mentioned in the dialogue had to be a clue but didn’t make the connection to delegate. I kept thinking Salad Bar which just wasn’t working. Really good puzzle. Happy Friday all!
