Visual Description:  Mime misdirection.


Clue/Question:  The wrestler thought he would win the match, but he was – – –

(Every now and then the guys like to throw us a little misdirection.  The mime aspect works great with the dialog, but really has nothing to do with the answer.  It seems strange to me, but it looks like “shrank” is a new clue word.  The list has shrink and shrunk, but no shrank.  Our good pal, ralis95, will have to update his world famous clue word database accordingly.  All of today’s jumble came up as new.  A nice, long, and cryptic, answer letter layout.  If the mimes threw you any, you might’ve had a hard time deciphering the answer letter layout.  But, the cartoon is a lot of fun.  My son has always been a huge fan of TV wrestling.  He’s 30 years old now, and it’s more important to him than any conventional sport.  My boy will never grow up.  At least I hope he doesn’t.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    The mime aspect did indeed throw me….(as did the Star Wars reference in the picture just a week or so ago) ..I considered and threw out all mime references/words I could think of! Focusing on the letter K started me on the right track. We Jumble-heads will not be deterred in our quest to solve each word and puzzle, no matter what Jeff and David throw at us! =) Aw, UR, that’s so sweet about your son! Hoping we all keep that wonderful little bit of ‘I won’t grow up!’ in us!

    Arguably, he’s a little extreme that way. But, I love him dearly. — YUR

    Good one guys–this gave me trouble. I also got hung up on the red-herring clue, “speechless,” in the cartoon–noting that the letters for SILENT were available to fit nicely but incorrectly of course as the first word of the final answer. After some wheel spinning, I moved on and saw SORELY to go with “Ouch!” and then got it.

    I also thought SHRANK was a new word. I think they’ve taken your suggestion, Unc, and been searching for new five- and six-letter words to challenge us with the last couple of months. It feels like ralis95 has needed to update at a faster clip lately.

    SARTCRIMYSHERM, Unc and fellow Jumble fans!

    Shrank is the past tense of shrink. I shrink today; I shrank yesterday. From a retired English teacher. I fell for silent being the first word of the answer by the way and couldn’t see past it.

    Yep. The Mime threw me because you can make “silent”. Once I fixated on that, I was gone.

    Wow! It looks like the guys got a good number of you, with their misdirection! — YUR
