English: Tiverton : Devco Car Dealership

English: Tiverton : Devco Car Dealership (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Visual Description:  Grand opening of a car lot.

TDNAS  =  STAND,  BOYBL  =  LOBBY,  EECINT  =  ENTICE,  LORNEL  =  ENROLL   —   Giving us:  SALBETEERL

Clue/Question:  The grand opening of the car dealership was a chance for them to do this.

Answer:  ??????????   (Update:  The answer is SELLEBRATEI should seen them quote marks!)      YUR

(Which them?  The dealers, or the customers?  I’m not exactly bringing my A game today, so I think I’m going to need the help of you readers, on this one.  I did think that that “entice” was jumbled very well.  And, it looks like “enroll” is new to the ralis95 clue word database.  I’m not even seeing any  smack-you-in-the-face bonus clues, like Jeff’s been giving lately!  Maybe I’m just a little tired today.  Somebody needs to tell me how obvious the answer is.  Who’s it gonna be?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    If you’re looking to feel better and celebrate, try “sellebration”.

    Oops! I mean “sellebrate”. Sorry.

    I cheated and looked it up. The answer is Sellebration.

    Anon: At the risk of appearing critical, the answer is sellebrate; First I thought it was that word but didn’t have the right combination of clue letters and had to dump sellabrate. :}

    I see quotation marks, and always have a shot of frustration fly through me. I cheated on first two letters. 😦 I also struggled with ENTICE and ENROLL because of the vowel “E” starting both.

    SELLEBRATE ………….. corny

    I didn’t have a lot of trouble with “Sellabrate” because some dealerships have used similar plays on the word like “saleabration”, “saleathon” and the like, so when I noticed “sell” among the letters, I figured it out.

    @ Bill,

    Missing the quotation marks was my big mistake, but I also think if they had placed a hyphen after the first four blanks/circles I probably would have picked up on the play on words.

    @ Mickey Z.,

    Corny puns are what the Jumble is all about, brother!

    @ Lesley,

    Hey, babe!

    @ og and anonymous,

    Thanks for chiming in, guys!
