Visual Description:  Teeter tottering emotions.

NOOZE  =  OZONE,  SMIPK  =  SKIMP,  WHDERS  =  SHREWD,  LOGIAE  =  GOALIE   —   Giving us:  ONSMSWDGOI

Clue/Question:  With so many children trying out the equipment, the new playground had – – –

English: Playground

Answer:  MOOD SWINGS

(This is what I call a good, stinky pun!  It’s largely visual, but the clue/question alone sets it up very nicely.  There were no new clue words today.  However, three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve definitely seen “nooze” before.  They all came to me right away.  The answer letter layout does a great job of concealing the answer.  It’s a masterful jumble.  The cartoon really shows the kids’ range of emotions.  One looks terrified, one looks elated.  One is crying, and another looks grumpy.  Most kids love the swings.  I know I did.  But, I guess they’re scary to some.  C’ést la vie!  Be well and do good, kids.)   —   YUR

    Nice pun indeed! GOALIE took me a couple of seconds, and the final answer needed a little bit of thought. The visual made it clear, but I never saw it – just relied on the words!

    Tough one for me. I guess I’m just not good with jumbles where the words are almost all vowels or consonants.

    I love watching kids in the park. All is well, everyone is happy and playing, then the next thing you know someone is screaming, someone is crying…mood swings indeed!!! 🙂 LL
