Clue/Question: When her sheep gave birth, Mary . . .
Answer: HAD A LITTLE LAMB
(Where’s Gary Larsen when you need him??? That was actually one of his cartoons, many, many moons ago. Late ’70s – early ’80s, I’d guess. The Far Side really broke ground in the funnies/comics world. I remember my sister saving me the one about the guy who bit off just the ears and tail of the chocolate Easter bunnies. She said it was me! Of course that’s how I’d start, but I would eat the rest, over a certain amount of time. I think her gripe was that I also ate the ears and tail off of her chocolate bunny. Well, it’s not my fault she just left them there uneaten! She was too slow. And, they were calling to me. Eat me, uncle. Eat me! My philosophy is to never argue with a chocolate Easter bunny.
No new clue words, today. ralis95 can stand down! They were all jumbled well though. The only one that I had to think on was “tandem”. Great job, there. The answer letter layout was sublime! If you didn’t pick up on the nursery rhyme the answer letter layout would have left you puzzling and puzzling. Nice little down on the farm cartoon, too. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
PS. That better be a solid milk chocolate bunny! The hollow ones are hardly worth the time. — YUR
