Jumble Solved – 01/07/23

Lincoln log cabin pennies released into circulation | The Spokesman-Review

Visual Description:  For his loafers???


Clue/Question:  When they debuted the new Ralph Lauren penny, they showed their – – –

(Ya know, they way that our entire country – and most of the world – has become so corporatized, I wouldn’t put it past the federal government to allow – and profit from – the corporate sponsorship of our coinage and banknotes.  Our municipalities used to name their stadiums and arenas after famous people, or things that were distinctive to their communities.  Now not only the venues but even many/most of the events have corporate sponsor names attached to them.  This bowl season has seen the Capital One Orange Bowl, the Allstate Sugar Bowl, The Goodyear Cotton Bowl, the Taxslayer Gator Bowl, the Prudential Rose Bowl, the Chik-Fil-A Peach Bowl and the Cheez-It Citrus Bowl!  And that’s just the older/better known bowl games.  Some of the lesser bowl games have even more ludicrous sponsorship!  I think it’s shameful and embarrassing, but it has become so pervasive that most of us have just become numb to it.  How long before there are corporate sales reps in our maternity wards offering to sponsor the names of our newborns?  Ridiculous???  Get back to me in 10 years, to tell me I was wrong.

All of today’s clue words are on the one and only – completely unsponsored – ralis95 clue word database.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new for me, but it seems that we have seen “mheanu” in at least one prior Jumble.  I wonder if one of the Caveman’s Commandments was:  Though shalt not covet thy neighbor’s flint!  And maybe designers will compete for our pennies.  Then we’d get Calvin Klein versus Ralph Lauren!  Is Polo considered a humane sport?  Because I hear a lot of valid complaints about thoroughbred racing.  The answer letter layout was a hip and happenin’ – aka: trendy – twelve letter jumble.  I thought it was stylishly cryptic.

Great cartoon of Ralph Lauren with one of his top graphic designers.  I like how Jeff kept the cartoon fairly simple, with crisp clean lines.  I hear that it is costing the U.S. Mint a little more than two cents to produce each penny, so they will either phase out the penny, or they might succumb to corporate sponsorship.  That’s okay, Abe.  You had a darn good run!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    They’re currently putting famous women on U.S. quarters … I suppose putting fashion icons on U.S. cents could be the next program! Have an excellent weekend, UR!

    Have they moved on from National Parks, hal??? I wish they would promote the quarters like they did when they put out the 50 State ones! Hope you have a great weekend too! — YUR

    Very happy that Damar has recovered from that scary injury. The power of prayers. 🙏. But it is extremely unfair to the Patriots to have to play the Bills today. It is an important game and Bills emotions will be unfairly high. The only fair thing to do is to award the Patriots a win, and have BOTH TEAMS honor Damar at the game. Seems fair to me.

    Speaking of fair, my friend was a fair 6 of 13 y’day (.462 clip) as fair minds have resorted order after the major blow-up a few days earlier. Cooler heads prevailed in the end. I couldn’t make heads or tails of the situation. Penny for your thoughts? 🪙

    At the end of the day, after the Patriots win by forfeit today, we can begin the playoffs with a happy and healthy Damar on the sidelines. Truly a miracle!

    God bless you all,

    LOL! You are the prototypical delusional Pats fan, Smitty! (Yes, I understand you were/are joking . . . I hope.)

    But dude, as far as my thoughts go . . . I don’t have any thoughts about what goes on on competing sites. I just concentrate on this blog, my responders, and fellow bloggers who register “Likes” for my posts. Why don’t you start your own blog, Smitty? Then you wouldn’t have as much free time to visit multiple puzzle related blogs. But of course . . . still follow mine! The original! And still the best! LOL!

    Classy move by Belchick to let them return opening kick. He understands the significance that some things are bigger then sports

    Right . . . and Leslie Frazier and Josh Allen are just returning the favor, Smitty. — YUR
