  1. Good Morning, Everyone.. 🦈 THERE ARE NO WORDS 🦈

    🎶…”Jaws – Shark Attack” ..🎶 – John Williams 1975 https://tinyurl.com/4rk8w4uk

    🦈 You’ll often hear one MUTTER the sounds of the film “Jaws”,
    Like walking a PLANK, it strikes fear…and Bruce def was the cause…
    Some questioned Spielberg’s ETHIC, the movie had its gore,
    But it was quite the summer hit..although some shirked the shores
    (And FUNGUS, it falls short here…with this theme it’s hardly central)…
    The focus today lies within the music…INSTRUMENTAL…🦈

    So…Steven Spielberg, https://tinyurl.com/5n75vyyd John Williams, https://tinyurl.com/y6x4naf9 and the birth of the “Jaws” soundtrack… https://tinyurl.com/tfhfpnht …And it’s all floating out there Folks..The…”DUUNN…DUUNN”…The dialogue…”Just two NOTES..tempos, rhythms”…There were NO WORDS…it was just INSTRUMENTAL…And John Williams, so KEY in creating the soundtrack? You had to sink your teeth right into this one…He was…INSTRUMENTALhttps://tinyurl.com/bd2pdw57

    So…There you have it Folks…Done. Have a good one. Be well, be kind, stay safe…And remember…when looking for the perfect spot to go swimming?…CHEWS wisely…🦈🙋🏻‍♀️


  2. 🙅🏻‍♂️Despite a MUTTER or two from the committee, the central PLANK of the new bylaw was INSTRUMENTAL in keeping with a strong work ETHIC…and just as one would avoid a FUNGUS by any means, the chairman refused to bend his position…🙅🏻‍♂️

    🤷🏻‍♂️The tree had sprung a FUNGUS, it looked like a dry PLANK,
    The landscaper did MUTTER…”It’s an odor that’s quite rank”…
    But being true to his ETHIC, he tried to sound most gentle…
    “I doubt that I can save this tree…the fungus INSTRUMENTAL”…🤷🏻‍♂️

  3. 🦈 Seems like lately the sharks run amok,
    Tales of sightings and folks out of luck…
    Climate change may be why,
    ‘Cause things have gone awry…
    And there’s been cases of nip and tuck! 🦈

    🎥 When the movie first hit the big screen,
    In the theaters one heard people scream…
    It was quite the fanfare,
    But made people aware…
    That the ocean’s not all that serene! 🎥

    🙇🏻‍♂️“Jaws” proved itself pure box-office gold,
    And John’s music left swimmers quite cold…
    There were those quite afraid,
    On the shore many stayed…
    ‘Cause a lot of them felt much less bold! 🙇🏻‍♂️

    🏊🏻‍♀️Chrissy Watkins fell victim to fate,
    Just as soon as “Jaws” ‘rolled out the gate’…
    And we saw her get trashed,
    Watched in horror..aghast…
    And from there the gore knew no abate…🏊🏻‍♀️

    💰 Spielberg gave his Shark the name of Bruce,
    And with chilling music let him loose…
    Bruce put Steve on the map,
    ‘Cause when he uttered…”Wrap”…
    He found his way to the Golden Goose! 💰

  4. Hello ! Not a good hump-day for me ! I had a FUNGUS a and that was just not ETHIC ! Also the jumble played no tunes that were instrumental to me ! I guess you’re gonna get a tough one every so often ! Everyone have a great Wednesday !

  5. Good morning fellow J’s – today was a challenge but still fun as it got my brain in gear ! When my lil bro Jim played his “INSTRUMENTAL” and sang his song, rather than sounding like “FUNGUS” on a “PLANK”, his “ETHIC” was to “MUTTER” his love for his wife serenading her with his sweet voice ! Until tomorrow everyone have a sunny day !

  6. There was no “near miss” here in my Jumble Land….I just started out on the wrong foot, and missed ETHIC by a country mile. What’s worse, I didn’t use my usual solutions, by that meaning if it isn’t readily solvable, the anagram usually starts with a vowel, or maybe (in the case) ends in a “C”. Anyway, had to go to Word Solver to get that first word….Whew !!! With letters in hand, managed to see answer fairly quickly, and put this little puppy to bed !! Guess I didn’t quite climb all the way up the hump on hump day !!! See you tomorrow.

  7. Jaws gave us all such a fright
    A movie that really had bite
    So breath-taking
    There was no mistaking
    It would wake us all in the night!

    What made it so appealing
    And had movie-goers a-reeling?
    The plot was a ripper
    A life-sized gripper
    That touched our darkest feeling!

  8. The words were easy, although ETHIC took a shortwhile. The answer was very hard. I tried to find short words to string together, and looked for common endings to words, or musical terms, but they left no clues. Then, for some reason, INSTRUMENTAL popped into my brain like a bolt of lightning. And it was right. Sometimes you get lucky.

    • Hardly a need to be, Miss Eleanor…it looks like many others fell into the same boat. You’re definitely an inspiration…and it’s always such a pleasure to see you here. God bless…And I wish you a wonderful day! 😘🙋🏻‍♀️

  9. Ethic was the word that slowed me down this morning but managed to get the cartoon solution. I always enjoy these long one word answers. Fun. Happy Wednesday all.
