Visual Description:  A young son giving his dad the third degree.

VEEOK  =  EVOKE,  AOTUQ  =  QUOTA,  TEIHNZ  =  ZENITH,  PEORCP  =  COPPER   —   Giving us:  OQUZIPP

Clue/Question:  Curious about his dad’s childhood, junior gave his father . . .

Answer:  A POP QUIZ

(Kind of a no-brainer today.  The answer letter layout was alright, but it’s kind of hard to hide a short answer in only seven letters.  Personally, I would have switched “copper” and “zenith”, because the QUZI pretty much jumps out at you.  OQUPPZI might have made it a little more challenging.  I saw all the clue words almost instantaneously.  The first two could have been jumbled better.  I liked the jumbling on “zenith”, but we’ve had the word before.  I also liked the jumbling on “copper”, and as it turns out, it is new to the Jumble Clue Word database!  I’m going to have to request an updated file from ralis95, because Mr. Hoyt has been providing us with new words on a pretty consistent basis.  Should we consider the can of soda/pop, on the table, a “bonus clue”?  I like how everyone who reads the paper in Jeff’s cartoons  has it open to the comics page!  If you turn it upside down, and squint, you can even make out a Jumble!  Kind of like product placement.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    As you did, I found this one particularly simple. I did think the concept and the cartoon were very cute. The good thing about the less challenging jumbles is that they make me feel smart, so I’m not complaining!

    I’ve had a bad cold/flu (even with shot) :(, so I have not been up to anything, but today I felt better and played the JUMBLE for the first time on line with the clock ticking. I didn’t do too badly under pressure. Cute cartoon and very realistic! Kids certainly DO ask a lot of questions!
