Clue/Question:  When is a dog’s tail not a tail?  When it’s a – – –

Image result for Radio Flyer Wagon

Answer:  WAGGIN

(Most definitely a sight gag!  But, I like it.  It reminds me that I forgot to wish my friend, Lauren’s dog a Happy Birthday, yesterday.  This girl is slightly over the top when it comes to her pets.  She gave him, Jake Pug, his very own Facebook page!  Do you think he’ll accept belated greetings???

All of today’s clue words are old favorites.  However, all the jumbles for them came up as new.  I like the palindromic nature of “imcmi”.  And, surprisingly, “wadnet” took me a few seconds to get.  But, I saw both “guava” and “guitar” immediately.  I thought the answer letter layout was actually pretty tough, until I noticed both the apostrophe and the quotation marks.  I knew WAGING wasn’t going to get it done.  The lady in the cartoon does actually bear a resemblance to my friend, and this Jake is about the right size, and I think Jake Pug is a some kind of pug mix.  See above, as I found a photo of them in Google Images.  I like the Summer nature of the cartoon, with the amusement park on the pier, and the classic sinking sailboat in the background.  And of course, the Radio Flyer wagon!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    This old chestnut is right up there (or down there, depending on your frame of mind!) with “When is a door not a door? When it’s AJAR” and “Why can’t you open the jelly? Because it’s JAMMED.” Long live the pun …

    Ha haliburton, that “When it’s ajar” joke was my grandmother’s favorite joke. We heard it frequently growing up. And I thought of that AJAR joke just as you did when I solved “When it’s a WAGGIN’.”

    In the same vein, David … another old one, recalled by my mom as a favorite of *her* grandmother’s, was, “What’s black and white and red all over? The newspaper!” (Substitute READ, past participle, for RED.) The first time anybody ever heard that one, and the AJAR joke, they laughed so hard they almost fell off the Ark …

    My mother always told me that her father’s favorite line was: “Eat every bean and pea on your plate!”

    Me, being the literal dunce that I am, always just kind of smiled, and laughed politely. It wasn’t until she said it to my son – and he roaring with laughter – did it sink in to my thick skull. “Pee on your plate!” he cried.

    Oh!!! She never said it with a pause (comma) of any kind – between “bean” and “and”, so I never made the connection of Pea and Pee, until I was in my later 30s.

    Maybe, it’s because I never liked peas much? — YUR
