Good Morning, Everyone!         💊 A BITTER PILL TO SWALLOW 💊

🎶 Don’t go to bed, with no PRICE ON YOUR HEAD no, no (Don’t do it), no, no…
Don’t do the CRIME, if you can’t do the time (Don’t do it)…Keep your eye on the sparrow when the going gets narrow…(Don’t do it) Don’t do it. Don’t roll the dice if you can’t PAY THE PRICE, no, no (Don’t do it), don’t do it…Don’t run your feet down no dead end street, no, no (Don’t do it)…Just keep your eye on the sparrow when the going gets narrow….(Don’t do it) Don’t do it…🎶 “Keep Your Eye On The Sparrow”-Baretta’s Theme – Sammy Davis, Jr. 1976 

💊 This subject’s sad and serious, it’s happened in “real life”
It’s caused heartache and hardship, a story full of strife…
You wonder how the DEITY will deal with such a man,
Devoid of GLINT but GLOSSY-prone to get all that he can.
A TENANT of the prisons, he now is serving time…
You wonder if the sentence really serves to fit the crime.
HIs greed and smug indifference has caused a lot of pain,
And now he gets no pleasure from what was ILL-GOTTEN GAINS 💊

So, we’ve made it through another week of Jumble Jewels. And it looks like we have another new word today, in DEITY. Our others? All Sweet Repeats, with TENANT, having appeared here as recently as June 13th. But with its’ double-double consonant offering, it may still be the stumper of the day…although DEITY has a good chance to hold that HIGHER POWER. Overall, a good way to close out our WORD WEEK..So, on to our solution. Today’s cartoon deals with a subject matter a lot more serious than what we’re used to. Having been headline news in the recent past, we’re brought into a COURTROOM, where the trial of the PHARMA BRO is taking place. Jeff’s likeness of him is uncanny. He’s somehow managed to capture the man’s arrogant look overshadowed by eyes devoid of any sense of humanity. I’m not even going to mention his name. You, our dear readers are free to look up “THE MOST HATED MAN IN AMERICA” should you care to. Bottom line here is that we’re WITNESSing a trial of this man, who MANAGED to GAIN a ton of MONEY and it was mostly GOTTEN because there were people ILL with AIDS, who needed the MEDICATIONS that his company provided…and he RAISED the PRICES drastically…Mostly…Because if that wasn’t enough, he also DOCTORED the books, and smugly TROLLed the Internet after it. And we see that the dialogue quotes him as saying he needed a new Yacht…The word INSOUCIANT may have been COINed just for him…So, with our question asking what his PROFITS were? They were ILLGOTTEN GAINS. Good one, David. Right on the MONEY

And eye candy? The looks of pure disgust on the faces of the JURY tells it all…There’s nothing sweet about this today, it’s just a BITTER PILL to swallow. So, There you have it, Folks, Done…Have a great day, Everyone…And I’ll leave you with this old proverb…”GREEDY eaters dig their graves with their teeth”. Chew on that, PHARMA BRO…💊🙋🏻
