    🎶 You-oo-ve got the MAGIC TOUCH…You’ve made me lose so much…You cast a spell, I’ve gone to hell…the MAGIC TOUCH… If I go reeling…Uh oh…I’m feeling the blow (uh-oh)…But where can I go from you? …I didn’t know too much…And then the cards you touch…And now I’ve learned…I’m getting burned…The MAGIC TOUCH….🎶 “The Magic Touch” – (with apologies to) The Platters 1956 https://tinyurl.com/2nydwfu4

    🃏 The man’s well known for sleight of hand, a bad idea is this,
    And Jeff he tries to DRINK it in…he knows something’s amiss…
    The shuffling of the cards he sees…it may EVOKE some pause,
    He’s seen Derek perform his show…and from whence cards he draws…
    He thinks it’s rather SHABBY that here in this game of poker,
    Derek’s the one who’s dealing…leaving him looking the joker…
    He’s FOUGHT it out so far but now he’s thinking something’s planned…
    His steady stream of bad cards? Was it set up BEFOREHAND?🃏

    To those of us die-hard Jumble fans it’s no secret that Jeff loves poker…It’s no secret that Jeff loves magicians and magic shows…And it’s no secret that Jeff loves to SHUFFLE a lot of his favorite things and his favorite people into his brilliant cartoons….And today we have a SHOW of both! That Jeff…he’s such a CARD!

    Ok…A poker game…but not your usual PAIR, I mean fare. No…Because today we’re DEALING with SLEIGHT of HAND…not to be confused with Jeff’s SLIGHT of HAND…For the men gathered here are…clockwise from Jeff’s right, Mac King, https://tinyurl.com/4nrr363x , famous comedic magician, David Copperfield, https://tinyurl.com/kjz7wd4a , legendary showman, John van der Put, uniquely known professionally as “Piff the Magic Dragon”, https://tinyurl.com/3nwa32nz (who you may remember from “America’s Got Talent”), accompanied by “Mr Piffles”, his chihuahua assistant…each of the three master illusionists…and last but not FLEECED, today’s ACE IN THE ROLE…none other than the amazingly talented Derek DelGaudio, https://tinyurl.com/mrx7eh6m who’s had his HANDS in many POTS over the years…He acts, he writes, he’s a performance artist, he‘s a magician extraordinaire…and he definitely knows his way around a deck of cards…Originally having gained fame with his theater show, “In & Of Itself’, https://tinyurl.com/25xwvkvh (scroll through it all, past the nuisance ads…it’s worth the read)…which went on to have a film version also, last year he published AMORALMAN … https://tinyurl.com/4wx4jwr6 (same here…click the “SEE MORE” in the article, it’s very interesting), where he goes on to describe the how and whys leading to him having pulled the bull…I mean wool over people’s eyes… “Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive”…Sir Walter Scott…and Derek DelGuadio…The book’s definitely a GAME changer…

    So…knowing all this, you’d think Jeff would have chosen a better crew to play poker with! right? What ILLUSION was he under? …He’s surrounded by the KINGS of Illusion! …Vegas Royalty! …And he’s getting a ROYAL FLUSH! Since if you look at the stacks of chips piled in front of everyone but Jeff? It’s easy to see that he’s definitely gotten himself into a POT of hot water! Bottom line? Not only are cards shuffled BEFOREHAND in poker… https://tinyurl.com/yz8ff2cz more importantly one needs to PLAY his cards right…and know who he’s DEALING with BEFOREHAND! Because if you look real closely, you’ll see that there’s an Ace up Mac’s sleeve, a second one in the crook of David’s arm, a third in Mr Piffles’ mouth, and a fourth in Derek’s pocket…proving that Jeff was on the money all along…Mind you I said ON the money…unfortunately not IN it…Let’s face it…with the CARDS STACKED AGAINST him https://tinyurl.com/mvtx4wky like this? Jeff’s definitely getting a raw DEAL today…

    And…There you have it Folks…Done. Have a good one. Be well, be kind, stay safe…and of course this is all tongue-in-cheek…part of today’s Jumble GAME. IRL, Jeff is friends with his fellow-players…so when it comes to poker, he’s amongst his PAIRS…And with that, watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat! 🃏🙋🏻‍♀️


  2. 🤦🏻‍♂️Lately, every time he’d DRINK too much, it would EVOKE memories of that night he and his ex-wife FOUGHT over the SHABBY state of their marriage…and he’d realize, once again, that when it came to alcohol he should always pace himself BEFOREHAND….🤦🏻‍♂️

    🎄They FOUGHT over the SHABBY tree, he wanted it thrown out,
    But memories it did EVOKE for her without a doubt…
    She always was one to DRINK in thoughts of times now gone past,
    And sentiment the old tree held…sweet memories do last…
    So now again they’ll decorate …and she’s taking a stand…
    The tree stays put…and why don’t he just know this BEFOREHAND? 🎄

  3. BEFOREHAND ??? There was a lot more to today’s Jumble than I gave credit to. I certainly didn’t recognize all the players in this game, especially the various illusionists. Therefore, it was a very cryptic puzzle for me so no blind solve for this Monday morning. However, did speedily attack the anagrams and soon found the answer. I’ll wait with anticipation for tomorrow’s puzzle to try for something a little less complicated. Thanks for the tuneful Platter’s song, Angela !!

  4. Great start of the week Monday ! The anagrams were not at all SHABBY! They went on to EVOKE a the usual start of the week Monday , where I couldn’t have FOUGHT about them ! So I’ll have a DRINK of tea and smile for a fun and entertaining jumble ! The jumble came right out when you saw all the men at the table trying to deal a hand of cards BERORE HANDS ! Everyone have a great Monday start of the week !!!! And a very descriptive and informative comment Angela , and good song by the Platters !

  5. The hand in my hand is the worst
    I’m so angry I’m fit to burst
    Seems this so-called shuffling
    Is nothing but bluffing
    I feel like today I’m just cursed!

  6. Good morning. Another successful completion but no blind solve. Once I had all the letters down the answer came to me pretty quick. Thanks for that great song Angela. I do believe I have that record in 78 rpm. Thanks also for all the info you gave us and here I thought it was just mortals like us playing. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Good Morning, Paul. You’re welcome, and thank you! Be well and stay safe. 🃏🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. OK. I have read everything andI still don’t get the pun/joke/wordplay. I didn’t recognize any of the entertainers but what does beforehand have to do with anything? Please, please.

    • Mac…They’re playing Poker…and BEFORE any HAND can be dealt in a game the cards need be shuffled…The question: “When it comes to dealing cards in poker, the playing cards are shuffled”….The answer: BEFOREHAND… https://tinyurl.com/yz8ff2cz 🃏🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. 🤞🏻When in poker you hope for the best,
    Get your cards…but then put to the test…
    It takes skill…plus the bluff,
    And will they be enough?
    It depends on the cards of the rest! 🤞🏻

    🤷🏻‍♂️Can’t blame Jeff if he’s feeling the pinch,
    He’s got skill…so he figured…a cinch…
    But if hand after hand,
    Has him coming up bland?
    Stands to reason our guy’s gonna flinch! 🤷🏻‍♂️

    🗣Sleight of hand is what Jeff’s up against,
    And at first he just sat on the fence…
    But with barely return,
    Can’t blame him the slow burn…
    So he’s speaking up in his defense! 🗣

    🤷🏻‍♂️When you can’t see your way in a game,
    While the others are racking up fame?
    It’s no wonder you’ll balk,
    And feel the need to talk…
    Are these cards being dealt all the same? 🤷🏻‍♂️

    🃏Bottom line here? Jeff’s on the right track,
    Derek’s definitely playing the stack…
    ‘Cause with his chips so low,
    And him so out of dough?
    He knew something was def out of whack! 🃏

  9. No big deal this morning. Was able to figure out the anagrams and cartoon answer without any problem. Thanks for all the information about the players, Angela. I wouldn’t have picked up on that at all. Wishing all a winning hand today.

    • YW, Betty. And thank you…It was a great carton to work with. Jeff definitely DEALT me a good HAND with this one! His likenesses are extremely spot on…and those hidden Aces are just that…Aces! And 👏🏻👏🏻 to your “no big DEAL” and “winning HAND”! Very well PLAYED! …Wishing you a good one too! 🃏🙋🏻‍♀️
