Visual Description:  The Geo-Science class.

OAKAL  =  KOALA,  VONWE  =  WOVEN,  RWATDO  =  TOWARD,  DRYEEE  =  REDEYE   —   Giving us:  OLWNOWD

Clue/Question:  When teaching her kids about the Mariana Trench, she gave them the – – –

Image result for Mariana Trench

Answer:  LOWDOWN

(It’s kind of Geography, and kind of Geology.  Right?  Probably more one than the other, but I decided to play it safe, and called it Geo-Science.  I liked the pun though.  Not really sure of the etymology of the word/phrase, but it’s pretty common.

We have two brand new clue words today!  Our good buddy, ralis95, is going to have to warm up the ol’ Commodore 64 – just kidding, boss – to add both “woven” and “redeye” to the world famous clue word database!  I had to back into “redeye”.  But, in my defense, it is a compound word of dubious distinction.  Yes, WordPress does not like it.  So, that means that it must not be an accepted compound word in Great Britain.  Ah, screw them anyway!  The jumble “oakal” has definitely been used before, but the others came up as new.  The answer letter layout was a good jumble too, but the answer was pretty obvious to me.

The cartoon is classic classroom stuff.  But, it is accurately informative.  And, they kind of threw in a bonus pun, with the kid saying: “That’s deep!”  The word “deep” can mean also mean intense and profound.  Deep is a very versatile word.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
