Clue/Question:  The guy who wasn’t tech-savvy got so frustrated with his computer that he – – –

Answer:  BOOTED IT UP

(I guess even cowboys get the blues!  I’ve wanted to kick my computer, from time to time, but fortunately cooler heads prevailed.  Although, back in the day of the heavy CRTs I did bruise some knuckles a few times.  But, it didn’t seem to help matters any.

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  However, all of the jumbles came up as new.  None of them tripped me up, but my neighbor told me his wife tried to make “odesu” sudeo!  I guess she’s another Phil Collins fan.  The answer letter layout was a fun ten letter jumble.  If you didn’t pick up on the rather strange cartoon I suppose you could have struggled coming up with the final answer.

Jeff kinda went out of his way to imply booting up a computer.  It’s a great cartoon though.  I don’t usually think about laptops at a rodeo.  But, ya gotta love the frustrated cowboy, the rodeo clown, the barrel and the bull.  That bull looks like he wants to tear someone apart!  A silly, fun, Monday Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Congrats to the Kansas City Chiefs, and all of their diehard fans, for their victory in Super Bowl LIV!  It was a fairly surprising comeback, as Patrick Mahomes seemed to be a little off yesterday. San Fran should be a viable contender again next year.  Andy Reid has sealed his path to Canton.  I’m probably happiest about that.   —   YUR

    I like this one. No question, even tech-savvy rodeo riders fantasize about doing this sometimes.

    When I went to college, there were computers but no PCs yet, and students typed their assigned papers on portable electric typewriters. I had a classmate and friend, so I will not use her real last name here–I’ll just call her Ms. Jackson–who was known to enjoy a beverage or two while typing assignments. One morning we found her electric typewriter in pieces in the courtyard below her window. She said the keys kept jamming. Ever after we called taking frustrations out on office equipment “doing a Jackson.”

    See the memorable clips from the film “Office Space”:

    “Why does it say ‘Paper Jam’ when there is no paper jam?? I swear to God, one of these days, I just kick this piece of [poop] out the window!!”
