  1. Good Morning, Everyone…🔺THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO SUM 🔺

    🎶 Don’t know much about GEOMETRY*, don’t know much Trigonometry…Don’t know much about ALGEBRA, don’t know what a slide rule is for…🎶 “(What A) Wonderful World” – Sam Cooke 1960 https://tinyurl.com/3cws83az

    🔺Our shapes today are all men, I was hoping to see MAUVE,
    But it’s really not a color for a man who’s looking suave…
    As always with our shapes we see they’re featured with graph backing,
    So there won’t be any fancy stuff…for sure all FLORAL lacking…
    And while sometimes shapes are PLACID, today we see three of four,
    Are annoyed by our Triangle and think him quite the boor…
    If there were to be an ANNEX to this puzzle here today,
    Most likely we’d see Triangle be sent upon his way…
    But right now what we have here is a shape who’s most compelled..
    To boast about how his three sides? They’re all UNPARALLELED! 🔺 

    Ok, here’s the thing. Geometry and I never saw pi to pi. Actually Algebra never fit into the equation either…In a nutshell, I never cared much for Math, and it was hardly ever my STRING, I mean strong suit. I’m a writer…and the only things I was ever concerned about counting were the number of syllables in the LINE of a rhyme…or how much time was left until deadLINE….Yet, oddly enough, today I’m a cracker-Jack whiz at Kakuro and Ken Ken, and I’ve never once had an error in balancing a checkbook, or written an overdrawn check…But oddly still? The second I read today’s question? PARALLEL LINES came to me at a glance…And I was like…”Well now I’ve SINE it all”! ADD that to the use of the word “ARROGANT” in our question, plus “He’s SO FULL OF himself” in our dialogue?…The Triangle’s feeling UNPARALLELED! https://tinyurl.com/ybjs6s42 Problem, I mean puzzle solved!

    Ok…The lesson plan…without going off on a TANGENT: A SQUARE – has two pairs of parallel sides, therefore it is a parallelogram…A RECTANGLE – Each pair of co-interior angles are supplementary, because two right angles add to a straight angle, so the opposite sides of a rectangle are parallel. This means that a rectangle is a parallelogram…But…A TRIANGLE? … A triangle is a polygon that has three sides and three angles. Due to the shape of a triangle, it has NO PARALLEL LINES IN IT…So it’s UNPARALLELED! And I never thought the day would come when I’d be amused by Geometry! …A new ANGLE in life? No…hardly. But I may COSINE myself to not being so put off by it all. The dread is pretty POINTless!

    So…There you have it Folks…Done! Have a good one. Be well, be kind, stay safe…and just like it never pays to argue with a 90-degree ANGLE, COS they’re always RIGHT…I hope you’ll not deGRADE me for having such an aversion to Math. Bottom LINE, as a teen it had no SHAPE on my future anyway…And as far as today’s puzzle goes…while it is ACUTE one, as our Miss Betty might say, if you’ve any PROBLEM or CONEcerns with it, please don’t POINT them in my direction… this is all David’s doing…send him to PRISM over it, not me…Ok..that’s it. Pi, Pi…🔺🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 🤦🏻‍♂️The usually PLACID Principal couldn’t help but get upset when he saw that the ANNEX had been painted MAUVE with a FLORAL pattern…definitely UNPARALLELED…but not in a good way!🤦🏻‍♂️

    👚The ANNEX to the sales order about the Summer line,
    Made sure to highlight FLORAL prints with varied shades of wine…
    It emphasized MAUVE mostly, a PLACID hue for sure,
    Such success had been seen with it…hence they would order more
    The bottom line of course to guarantee numbers be held…
    To last year’s profits which had been so far UNPARALLELED…👚

  3. I did it ! I ended this week of jumbles with no problem with anagrams or no problems with the jumble ! I am so happy ! The anagrams all came to me witch made it very smooth ! Then when I saw all the letters with 3 Ls and 2 As and the P and R , PARALLEL was the first word that came to me and it made sense that the triangle didn’t want to be like the square or rectangle, so the letters left were NEUD , so I thought the triangle was UNPARALLELED , and not sure if that was a word , I looked up the definition and it was spot on ! So I settled for it and it was right on ! Hooray ! I loved it ! And Angela , that was a great song ! I’m Everyone have a great end of the week Saturday !!!!!!

  4. The only positive I can come up with about today’s Jumble is Angela’s fun post and the song. Anagrams came easy…then stumped. To all those who succeeded, you get kudos for thinking outside the box.

  5. I suppose next the Pentagon barged in and said that he too was UNPARALLELED, which indeed he is, if he’s regular. But that’s a contradiction, since UNPARALLELED means that there is nothing other like it. I don’t know what an argument between the Square and the Pentagon would be like. But both the Square and the unsquare Rectangle are parallelograms, which means, according to Allen Sherman (“One Hippopotami”), they are just crazy squares. Incidentally I tried PARALLELOGRAM first, but too long and no G. And CLADPI… Sometimes I wear a T-shirt with the letter pi on it, surrounded by a circle of equations.

    • Oh goodness….disagree with jimvb13 bigtime. He cherry-picked the UNPARALLELED definition to suit his post. However, another definition is “exceptional”….and if you follow the cartoon along, exceptional fits in as a nice substitute for unparalleled.

      • 👍🏻Terry…And I spoke of that and added a link to its definition in the post…🔺🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Come to think of it, there would have been an even bigger argument between the Pentagon and the Triangle, as to which was UNPARALLELED.

  6. Given the tabulation above, I’m in good company not being able to solve the multi lettered cartoon jumble. Not having a real paper newspaper, being a Saturday, where there is no paper newspaper, didn’t help!

  7. Really cute puzzle this morning. As you know the number puzzles are my favorite but the shapes are a close second. I too thought of parallelogram first but switched to unparalleled after studying the letters. “He’s half the size as am” – too funny. Happy Saturday all!
