CARTOON ANSWER: THE PROCESS FOR MAKING BEEF JERKY IS- – –

TU YA CR NDD = CUT-AND-DRY

Good Morning, Everyone!         🔪WHERE’S THE BEEF? 🔪

🎶 She said “I’ve had burgers well done and rare..Now I’ve got one that ain’t even there”..She got no response from ringing the bell…And that’s when she started to yell…”Where’s the BEEF…Where’s the BEEF? Where’s the BEEF“?🎶 –  “Where’s the Beef”? Coyote McCloud and Clara Peller 1984  https://tinyurl.com/y8zpbxob

🔪 It’s not like there’s a BYLAW saying you must marinate,
Depending on your taste buds…it’s a choice that’s left to fate.
I’ve never tasted Jerky, I’ve no desire to…
The look alone, not to my taste…not TULIP-like imbued…
I guess it’s like a CIRCUS, different things appeal to some,
The animals, the trapeze acts…the reasons people come…
I’m know there’s Jerky fans out there, the heads NODDED agree,
And I’m not passing judgement…it just never interested me.
I’m big on Beef, I’m never one a good steak to pass by…
But I’m unlike our couple here…I don’t do CUT-AND-DRY! 🔪

Once again today, it seems we have a new entry in Jumble play: NODDED. Our other three words BYLAW, CIRCUS, and TULIP, have appeared in 2016, 17, and 18, respectively. And except for a slight tic at CIRCUS, none of the words posed any problems…

Unfortunately, I’m having a little problem with a new Website format this morning, so I’m going to CUT to the chase…We see a couple, dressed in Cincinnati Reds Jerseys, planning to make BEEF JERKY. The woman, reading from a cook book, is telling the man it’s simple…Slice, season, and place on the racks. The man, wearing a Red’s cap, mentions that it’s straightforward…Between them, the big clue…It’s CUT AND DRY. Beef Jerky is lean meat that’s been CUT into strips and DRIED.. https://tinyurl.com/yb9ywfm7  Good one, David..Looks like you CUT right to the chase too!

The eye candy…The view from the window…A snow covered housetop, snow drifts, and icy ground. There’s a shoveled path shown leading into the couple’s house..Nice detail, Jeff. The knife, in the man’s left hand, (Nicer detail, Jeff! A Southpaw)! with little ^^^ marks, denoting its’ sharpness…To the right of the slab of meat, the DRYING RACK. And on the counter, a bottle of Worcestershire Sauce. It reads: LEA…and there’s a capital P...It’s not exactly spelt out…but you get the DRIFT…At least it doesn’t say Jumble! So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone! Let’s hope we stay DRY!  🔪🙋🏻

NOJRIU = JUNIOR

 

CARTOON ANSWER:

THE LAWYERS IN THE COURTROOM WERE – – –

GEEGBDDNJUI = BEING JUDGED


Happy Monday, Jumble friends! Today’s puzzle offered up a brand clue word in GABBY while all of the others were old favorites. None of them gave me any trouble and I was able to breeze right through them at first glance. HIDDEN was the oldest of the group and was scrambled as DINDHE the last time we saw it on 4/2/17. And finally, ESEGE is the same anagram we had last time for GEESE when it was in gameplay on 4/10/18.

Our cartoon this morning brings us into a courtroom where we encounter three Jumble characters. The first thing that I noticed was that the judge looked rather unhappy and he can be seen pointing his right index finger at both of the attorneys. The dialogue informs us that these two counselors have made some type of error and the judge is calling them out on it. He even went so far as to question if they’ve passed the bar exam which leaves them both with their mouths wide open and panicked looks upon their faces.

There were only a couple of extra details in the panel that caught my attention with most of the visual appeal of the cartoon relying heavily upon the features of the characters. We see the judge seated in an oversized chair behind his bench with his gavel close at hand. On the bench is an emblem featuring the scales of justice with the left bowl being slightly larger than the right. This small detail was my favorite as it gave the cartoon a sense of dimension since it was drawn at an angle.

The final solution consisted of an 11-letter anagram which solved into two words. The cartoon sentence was the shortest that we’ve had in quite awhile and contained only six words. Noticing the JU together in the layout brought JUDGE instantly to mind leaving BEING to be found next with the -ED ending to finish it all off. It was an easy way to start the week and I’ll see you all right back here for tomorrow’s puzzle! ⚖️
