Visual Description:  What’s my motivation for this scene?


Clue/Question:  Before starting the new ad campaign, the underwear model was – – –

(That’s the short of it, folks!  When I was growing up, there was just no question about it.  Guys wore briefs.  Boxers were for old guys.  So, I wore briefs well into my thirties.  Then, my oldest step-son clued me in to boxers.  I guess they were starting to come into fashion again in the later ’80s.  Plus, he pointed out how less restrictive they were.  So, I gave them a try . . . and I’ve never gone back.  I’ve heard tell, and seen, these things call boxer-briefs.  But, they’re just longer versions of briefs.  Some people might like how they accentuate your tush, and such.  Butt, it’s underwear!  Who the heck is going to see them?  Plus, my boys long to be free!

All of today’s clue words were comfy old boxers.  Three of the jumbles did come up as new, with “leyref” having definitely been used before.  I found them all to be be light and breezy.  The answer letter layout was clean, like the underwear your mama always told you to wear . . . in case you get into an accident, or something!

Great photo staging scene cartoon.  The photographer is displaying what she wants the model to display.  She’s trying to keep things short and sweet.  Nice mid-week Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Unclerave — LOWDR may convert to WORLD, but in my youth, surrounded by English, Irish and Germans in the mid-west, it also converts to DROWL: laid-back and relaxed, lacking personality and humor; i.e. a drowl person.

    All familiar words today, UR, but surely an eccentric cartoon!

    I don’t know what causes it, [butt] eventually you get to a point when briefs don’t work any more… and you crave to be free.

    That’s a new one on me, Boss! I see your definition as having Irish roots, so perhaps it’s from the Gaelic? I think Hoyt is pretty safe with WORLD. Very interesting though. — YUR

    The topic reminded me of a time during a possible mid-life crisis where I thought about changing careers to become a photographer for panty hose ads. 😀
