Clue/Question:  The invention of rotary ceiling fans in the mid-1860s began with a – – –

First Generation Ceiling Fan Antique Piece YEAR 1847 - YouTube

Answer:  ROUGH DRAFT 

(Actually, if there’d been any draft, at all, maybe the ceiling fan wouldn’t have been invented!  But what’s the point in arguing with a stinky pun?  However, since this was about thirty years before the invention of deodorant I’m sure that there was a pretty good amount of funk inside these steamy rooms.  Back then all the menfolk sweated profusely . . . while the ladies glistened.

Unsurprisingly, we have seen all of today’s clue words before.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new for me.  But we’ve definitely seen “foref” in previous Jumbles.  No real toughies today.  The answer letter layout was another tidy ten letter jumble.  Marvelously cryptic!  The cartoon and its dialog were the subtle hints to the final answer.

The one guy must be some kind of inventor/draftsman, as he’s sitting at a drafting table.  Not an over-the-top period piece cartoon, but the one guy’s mustache and haircut looks olde timey!  And, the hand fans let you know what they were dealing with.  Fun Monday!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    UR,

    I’m sure Philip Diehl, {1/29/1847 – 4/7/1913},
    contemporary of Thomas Edison, and inventor of the electric ceiling fan, would be well pleased with today’s nifty Jumble Puzzle**^…

    I wonder what T.A.E. would think of our current
    Scholastic World Ranking compared too 40 yrs. ago¿¿? {from 6th – 12th, Oh Yikes}

    They’re always forcing teachers to grade on a curve! Most of them hate it, but know it’s a game that they HAVE TO play. Lots of *grade inflation* too. Too much feeling of “entitlement”, kenny-boy. — YUR

    UR,

    The latest PISA finding’s put the USA students
    around the middle of the pact out of 70 some countries…Boo!

    One tidbit to chew on; In the country of Singapore teachers are held in high esteem…
    This respect tends to be lacking in the USA…
    Truly sad…….

    If your able to read this, Thank a Teacher…☆

    Byyyyyyy…….k
