Sunday Jumble Solved – 01/08/23

Monty Python And The Holy Grail: 8 Behind-The-Scenes Facts About The  Classic Comedy | Cinemablend

Visual Description:  The siege!


Clue/Question:  During long battles, King Arthur and his men had some – – –

Pre-Answer:  Two Words  (9-letters)  “(7-letters)”

Otis Day Animal House “Shout” scene: DeWayne Jessie on how playing a fake  R&B star turned him into a real one (VIDEO).


(Great stinky pun!  Reminds me of Otis Day and the Knights!  Originally, a fictional roadhouse band in the 1978 comedy classic movie “Animal House”, but in the 1980s became an actual band!  They were famous for their rendition of “Shout”, which has been adopted as the Buffalo Bills fight song.  And, of course, the cartoon is putting me in mind of another comedy classic movie, “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”!  Hilarious!  If you guys are jonesing for a laugh look up/stream one of those movies.  Both are very funny!

We’ve seen all of today’s clue words before.  Four of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen both “pxoees” and “nsoloe” in previous Jumbles.  I found “sasing” a little challenging.  The answer letter layout was a sensational sixteen letter jumble.  I was getting a little worried when I saw so relatively few vowels, but the quotation marks in the final answer slots made this a no-brainer.

A great cartoon of Arthur and his men, defending the castle keep.  It’s looking like the attackers are relentless, as our heroes are looking pretty exhausted.  But they are not beat!  They will rally, because they are defending Camelot!  LOL!  Fun Sunday Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    So if I have this straight–there’s another jumble forum/blog, similar to Unclerave’s Wordy Weblog, at which one of your now and again commenters often posts her comments? And another frequent commenter keeps a running tab of her number of comments on this other blog out of spite? Or some sense of her betrayal? My heads spinning UR. We’ve officially run out of problems.

    A loyal, one blog jumble gal.

    Mind if I dance wit cho date? Gotta love Otis. I’ve always said Otis: The Place to Be. We enjoy shopping at the Otis Poultry Farm. Custom laid eggs. Always Farm fresh! No Yolk!

    Our pals over there were slow y’day, exhausted from all of the infighting I presume. Only nine comments in total with four from the Dean of Girls. 🙋‍♀️ for a.444 foray from the fabulous fraulein of fun.

    I’m very proud of the Patriots and their Hall of Fame coach for giving the Bills of Orchard Park a much needed emotional victory yesterday. As I said many times, some things are just bigger than sports. God bless Damar!

    Good day and God bless everyone,

    That is it in a nutshell, Gelsey. Although I wouldn’t say the one commenter posted often, just when it suited them. The second one does seem to take some pleasure reporting on the numerous activities of the first on that other blog, where apparently they are the “administrator”. The administrator is not happy with this second person writing about them, but I do edit those posts to remove the name, just as I did with your post.

    A few years ago, when that other site started posting, I did look in on it briefly, but the tone of the comments seemed unusually cheery, and gave off an insincere vibe, IMO, that kind of turned me off. So, I have not bothered to revisit them since. They can do their thing, while I do mine. It’s a big internet, where anyone can choose to go and read, or not. You can also go and check them out for yourself. You might even like that site better than mine. I will not take offense if you do.

    Hey, Smitty boy! Did that other site block you from posting, or somehow do you wrong??? What goes on over there really has no bearing on what I’m doing over here. Maybe you’re some kind of mole/troll just trying to drum up interest in that other site? I don’t know brother. I think it’s fairly pathetic, but I’m always one to give folks enough rope to hang themselves. I’ll continue to edit your posts as I see fit.

    But stop deluding yourself into thinking that the Pats would forgo making the playoffs themselves just to ease the Bills’ pain. They gave us quite a scare, for a good part of the game, but the better team won. The AFC East should be very scary next year, as the Jets, Fins and Pats showed great improvement this year.

    It’s all in good fun! Good clean fun! I have nothing against those guys over there. They think (when I say they I mean … The administrator as YOU put it). It’s more of a holier than than thou attitude that irks me, I really enjoy getting her pantries in a bunch, which I clearly do.

    Nothing personal. No hate or animosity just good clean fun *evil laugh*. But this place will always be #1 in my heart.

    Nice to hear from you Gelsey. I’m Smitty. It’s my pleasure. Yes I keep track of the stats over there. Have been for a few years now. Administrative comments at roughly a .421 clip over the last 23 months. Not too shabby for an older person. 🙋‍♀️ 🦯

    Anywho, no I’m not banned. Just like to read the remarks. This place is more fun!.
