The Liberty Bell hangs in the Liberty Bell Cen...

Visual Description:  Independence Hall and it’s onetime tower resident.

KPLAO  =  POLKA,  XNENA  =  ANNEX,  LGPTIE  =  PIGLET,  BOBARS  =  ABSORB   —   Giving us:  LANEGLARB

Clue/Question:  His explanation of how the famous crack formed did this.

Answer:  RANG A BELL

(O.K.  First things first.  I am giving myself a nice pat on the back!  Hey, blogs are all about vanity anyway.  I solved the clue words and wrote out the answer letters, as I always do.  I saw that the answer was a four-one-four deal, glanced at the cartoon, and without reading a single word of dialog or the clue/question  . . . I got the answer.  Someone call Mensa, quick!  LOL!  Yeah, right.  The cartoon is only slightly dominated by a monstrous Liberty BELL.  And, the answer letters really could have been laid out better.  Not that there was anything super obvious, but I saw an ANG as things were laid out.  There would have been a little more challenge, to the answer letters, had the first two clue words been reversed.  NELAGLARB, or even NELAARBGL would have made it slightly tougher.  But, only slightly.  The answer was going to be fairly obvious, any way you look at it.  I loved the scrambling of the clue words though.  I really had to think some on both “polka” and “piglet”.  I saw “annex” and “absorb” right away.  The first letters of the four clue words spell PAPA.  Any significance to this, David?  Your dad’s birthday, maybe?  Or, just a coincidence?  Maybe this is a sign that Philly is going to prevail tonight over the Cards.  They ARE still the favorite, and I don’t know if the “genius” – Tony Larussa – can pull off another  big upset.  The away teams have been pretty lucky this post season!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Maybe my brain has gone into “weekend mode” a day early or something, because I had a tough go with nearly every one of the words today – “piglet” especially.

    And even with a huge Liberty Bell in the drawing, the puzzle answer took me a little bit to figure out.

    “Mama said there’d be days like this!” Don’t sweat it, bro. Some days I’m just in full id/sav mode.

    ABSORB took me awhile because of distractions, and PIGLET was no easy chore either. Cute word, though! I had solution right away, so I finally backed into ABSORB and PIGLET out of weariness. Magnificent, sunny day! ENJOY!

    What is the context of these? They don’t seem to be jumbles. If they’re part of a cryptogram are the commas supposed to be there? Is this the order they’re supposed to be in?
