Striking Differences Between a Fluke and a Flounder - Animal Sake

Answer:  FLOUNDERING

(Flounder is a family of popular flatfish.  They’re a good eating fish.  Fluke is one type of flounder.  The biggest difference with flukes is that both of their eyes are on the left side of their bodies, while other flounders have both their eyes on the right side of their bodies.  There are also some coloring differences, but as far as I can tell they all pretty much taste the same.  And, both of them are a little freaky looking.  Don’t think they’re some kind of nuclear mutants!  They’re just bottom-feeding fish that have naturally evolved that way.

I think there must be some ERROR with today’s Jumble.  Somehow, our Jumble pals – past and present – have never used the clue word “error” before!  Can you believe it???  When I typed in “error”, in the find/search on the ralis95 clue word database, it took me directly to TERROR.  So, now the big boss-man has a reason to update his world famous clue word database.  All four of today’s jumbles are coming up as new, for me.  The answer letter layout was a nicely cryptic eleven letter jumble.  Even though there was no K, I was still thinking FLUKE.  But, with the available letters, I decided that the final letters were ING.  And, the beginning two letters could be UN.  But, UN-EORDFL-ING, and various iterations, weren’t exactly jumping out of the water.  But, the FL helped to end my floundering.  

Cute bottom-feeding flatfish cartoon.  I guess they practice a kind of sidestroke!  I always enjoy seeing the after effect of the classic sinking sailboat.  They can’t just vanish off of the horizon!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Another good final answer and cartoon. We’ll await confirmation from Angela, but I also do not remember having ERROR before as a regular word.

    It’s freaky that a fish will have both eyes on one side of the body !

    Freakier still, lwc, they’re NOT born that way. The one eye kind of migrates over time, as the fish matures. Nature is truly amazing! — YUR
