Clue/Question:  The rhinoceros showed how rude he was by – – –

Answer:  HORNING IN

(Great pun!  I’m not even going to call it “stinky”.  But, I do take issue with the premise.  This looks like a very public watering hole, so there should be no expectation of privacy!  Not unless the zebra and giraffe were whispering.  But, I wasn’t getting that vibe. 

There were no new clue words today, but all the jumbles appear to be new.  I couldn’t get “genius” until I backed into it.  I was toying with the idea of “sueing”, because suing seemed a little short to me.  I guess that means I’m no genius!  The answer letter layout was almost orihgn-al.

Fine cartoon of an African savanna.  Is that a black rhino, or a white rhino?  Hmm.  I’m also not sure what kind of bird is hitching a ride on the rhino.  Perhaps it’s the African Oxpecker?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    It might be a public waterhole (like a public bar), but you can still have a private conversation and it’s possible for an acquaintance to ‘horn in’ on that conversation. Though it would have been more obvious if there were other animals around, I guess.

    I really didn’t have any problem with the ‘horn in’ aspect of the gag. I just felt it was unfair to call the rhino ‘rude’. If you go to a bar alone, you almost have to ‘horn in’ on someone else’s conversation, if you want to be sociable. Otherwise, you’re just some sad-sack drinking by yourself. — YUR
