Visual Description:  The marriage of gullible Gordy and doubting Dottie.

FRAET  =  AFTER,  CONTH  =  NOTCH,  TECANC  =  ACCENT,  GURAJA  =  JAGUAR   —   Giving us:  FTNHCCEAA

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

    For whatever reason, I couldn’t get notch today. I figured it out only because I figured out the answer words and went back. Somedays they just slip over your head I suppose.

    Those electric shaker things are the old version of what today is just pills. People want to lose weight without an ounce of work. I love how at the bottom of the screen on the commercials for those pills there is always tiny words saying: works best with a healthy diet and exercise… Well really? Actually with the diet and exercise, you don’t need the pills. Although I criticize all of this while I enjoy an afternoon beer, so who am I to judge.
