Jumble Spoiler – Groundhog’s Day 2019

Visual Description:  Fawn . . . near the lawn.

AFROV  =  FAVOR,  NRTKU  =  TRUNK,  SUMSIE  =  MISUSE,  LETWAH  =  WEALTH   —   Giving us:  AORTRNMUEETH

Clue/Question:  The deer gave birth and knew what to do thanks to her – – –

Answer:  MOTHER NATURE

(Aww!  How can anyone call a cute Jumble like this a stinky pun?  It’s got Bambi, Bambi’s mom, Thumper . . . and Sqiggles the squirrel.  Okay, I made that last one up.  It’s got a nice ring to it though.  I’m a little surprised that Jeff couldn’t have worked in a groundhog!  In case you haven’t heard, both Punxsatawney Phil and Staten Island Chuck did NOT see their shadows this morning!  And, you know what that means!  Nothing really.  “Spring is right around the corner”???  How friggin’ vague is that?!!  It can mean any time less than six weeks.  It’s really just a silly superstitious “tradition”, and you know folks love their traditions!

None of today’s clue words came up as new.  No need to bother our old pal, ralis95.  Two of the jumbles appear to be new though, with both “sumsie” and “letwah” having definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout was a very impressive 12-letter jumble.  I thought it disguised the answer very nicely.  I think the leading nature of the clue/question, along with cartoon’s dialog, made getting the answer almost instinctive.

Really cute cartoon.  Not sure why Jeff decided to go with a father and son at the window.  Maybe it was an equal time thing?  Anyway, this was a fun Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Staten Island Chuck? Somehow, that sounds like a cut of beef. Here in MI, we have Woody the Woodchuck. *She* supposedly has a better record by percentage than Phil, over the past 19 years. The local news today said she was out and about for about 30 seconds before heading back inside. Today’s puzzle was straightforward. I knew one of the answer words was Mother, so the remaining letters were easy to unjumble. 😀

    LOL! Actually, Chuck has a much better accuracy record than Phil does too! I guess it’s a sign of the times that we have a *girl* named Woody! — YUR
