(More of a visual gag today!  No new clue words, but two of the jumbles appear to be new.  They’ve definitely used “pahyp” and “lorhel” before.   The answer letter layout was another successful jumble.  The cartoon is a kind of Dennis The Menace meets Norman Rockwell classic.  Little kids, boys especially – because girls seem to have more sensibility – think that burping is the funniest thing in the entire world.  The longer and louder the better.  They’ll try to belch out each other’s names, and even see who can get furthest reciting the alphabet . . . in belch-form.  It’s a boyhood right of passage.  Two great movies:  Stand By Me and The Sandlot!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    This one would have worked 50 years ago, with the minor adjustment to NICKEL A POP.” Belated birthday wishes to Derek. When’s *your* birthday, UR?

    Boys will be boys—ALWAYS!! Thoroughly enjoyed The Sandlot, I don’t think I saw Stand By Me.

    Great jumbler and cartoon. I’m wondering how many people know POP! Where I am, it is soda.

    Take care! LL

    I grew up calling it “pop”, but I’ve living in “soda” country for over 35 years! When I visited Atlanta, they called it all “Coke”! — YUR

    All I will say is I’m a Gemini.


    You’ve got to watch Stand By Me! It has a super cast, and it’s a great story.

    Calling Sprite or Orange Crush a “Coke” is definitely a Southern thing. I’ve heard it all my life and I still don’t quite get it …

    I think that Atlanta is kind of the NYC of the South, and the Coca Cola company got it’s start, and is still based, there. So, I can see how one of the earliest carbonated soft drinks could have become synonymous with the entire genre. Like how so many people ask for a Kleenex when they could ask for a tissue. Or Band-aids, or Scotch Tape. Some brand names just dominate a product in some regions, and it becomes automatic.
