Jumble Spoiler – 11/17/21

Curtis' Creator and SVA Alumnus Ray Billingsley on His Career, His  Influences and Representation in Comics - SVA

Visual Description:  Curtis’ cravings.


Clue/Question:  When Curtis thought twice about not getting a roast beef sandwich, he knew it was a – – –

Curtis (Comic Strip) - TV Tropes


(I like it!  It’s a good corny pun.  Not corned beef.  Just corny.  I also like the comic strip “Curtis”.  It’s probably in my top five of comics!  I especially like the story lines that revolve around him hanging out at Gunther’s barber shop, and the Sunday ones where he makes comments on all the women’s flamboyant hats at church.  He’s always getting in some kind of trouble at school.  Not bad trouble, just getting caught reading comic books in class, and stuff like that.

There were no new clue words today.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “GEEERM” before, and not all that long ago.  I didn’t struggle to get any of them though.  The answer letter layout was an elastic eleven letter jumble.  I thought there was nothing obvious about it, but I can see some folks struggling to get the final answer.

It looks like Curtis is eating a . . . hotdog?!?! He’s usually more about pizza, burgers and chicken, but I guess a hotdog works.  The drawing is a little unusual.  He seems older than the Curtis in the comics.  And, his usually oversized – and sideways – hat is kinda on the small side.  But still, I knew him in an instant!  Lot’s of fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    You’re absolutely correct, Ange! But still, the Curtis in yesterday’s Jumble just looked bigger and older. And, his cap looked even smaller than in the current comics, to me. — YUR

    He does…but I think his face looks different because he’s depicted as chewing, so with his cheeks so full it gave him a somewhat distorted look. I too thought he looked different t…🌭🙋🏻‍♀️

    Curtis is such a sap for Michelle, yet she constantly disses him.

    Why do girls do that to guys ?

    Because they let us? 🤷🏻‍♀️

    I asked why do girls diss guys; Angela says, “Because they let us”.

    Okay, Angela;
    I guess I’ll have to take that.

    It’s probably true.

    Actually Unc … No. Of course, sometimes to get help. BUT, I try to look at every blog and if I do nothing else, I check off the stars. I figure if you take the time to write them and to add pictures or music, that I can honor that by reading the blog, even if I don’t comment.

    And, I do abhor it when the Jumble beats me! 🙂 LL
