Clue/Question: When Sonny caught Cher after she stumbled and fell on the stage, he said this.
Answer: “I GOT YOU, BABE“
(And, they may have already been divorced by this point in time. They had one of those divorces where they knew they couldn’t possibly live with each other, but they still loved each other. I don’t know how common this is in divorces, but it’s got to be better than the kind with all the bitterness and animosity, that seems so prevalent. Bob Mackie costumes, great comedy sketches and popular music! I always found their shows to be very entertaining.
The clue words were all jumbled very well. I had to think a bit to come up with “obese”. And, there’s another word to add to the ralis95 clue word database, in “groovy”. It’s probably no accident that this clue word was used in this Jumble. It was such a popular word during the second half of the ’60s, and into the early ’70s. I think that Sonny and Cher even did a cover version of “Groovy Kind of Love“. Fantastic cartoon, Jeff! Great likenesses. The answer letter layout gave nothing away. If you’re not of a certain age, or you don’t care for ’60s pop music, you might have had a tough time getting today’s answer. But, this was pretty much right in my wheelhouse. I always think of the movie Groundhog Day whenever I hear, or see mention of, this song – “I Got You, Babe”. I’m thinking of that movie a lot lately. Anyone out there want to psychoanalyze your dear old uncle??? Ooh! You’ll need a strong stomach for that! Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
