Clue/Question: When it came to her husband’s plan to successfully lose weight, she thought he had this.
Answer: A FAT CHANCE
(One of those sarcastic little phrases we say when we mean the complete opposite! I really liked today’s Jumble, but mainly because of the superbly jumbled clue words. None of them are new, but they all required more than a quick glance. Both “after” and “notch” are leading the way in look-up queries. The answer letter layout was good, but I think it could have been better. The Electric Vibrating Belt Weight Loss Machine! Those things were a riot! I think I first saw one in an old Three Stooges short, when I was a kid. Jiggling is all well and good, but YOU’VE got to be the one to MAKE it jiggle. Be well and do good, friends. Get moving!) — YUR
