Clue/Question:  The people who purchased coffee on the train platform were – – –

The NYC Coffee Shop Subway Map - Thrillist


(This pun feels fresh ground!  But . . . maybe only because it’s taking place on a subway platform . . . this time.  This punny answer could also have worked for people purchasing coffee on a city sidewalk, or even inside any popular coffee bar.  But I like it anyways!  Although, if this were the New York City Subway system they would – presumably – have to drink their coffees quickly, as you are not supposed to bring any liquid in an open container onto any train car.  Whether, or not, that rule is strictly enforced is another matter entirely.

All of today’s clue words are on the ralis95 clue word database.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new.  Although, we have definitely seen “tubean” before.  A few days ago we had the clue word INHALE, but I noticed that the letters can make the word HALINE also.  It’s an adjective relating to the degree of saltiness.  Similar to SALINE.  There are a number of online references/definitions of the word, though no Merriam-Webster’s listing of the word.  I could buy the argument that it’s not a common/usual word, but when I was taking care of a pool in the summers, during my college years, the word was burned into my brain!  The answer letter layout was an elusive eleven letter jumble.  Superbly cryptic.  Initially, it had me stumped.  I guess I was trying to come up with something coffee related, or train related.  So I dropped it, and went on to do both the Celebrity Cipher and the Cryptoquote.  When I came back to it I got it immediately!  I wouldn’t be surprised if this gave some of you some trouble too.

Great cartoon of the commuters queuing at the coffee kiosk, while waiting for their train.  Lots of great detail in the cartoon.  You can tell that Jeff put a lot of work into this one.  There is even a rat running down below, along the tracks!  And the name on the coffee cart is perfect:  “Joe To Go”.  There is definitely a lot to like about today’s Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Bill Clinton never inhaled pot. Now that it’s legal, I wonder if he does? Maybe he just eats the gummies.. pot comes in all shapes and sizes these days, just keep or away from the children. 👧 I only smoked weed when I was younger. Never had the variety back then. I think pot brownies were a thing, but I never tried them. I wonder of that woman, Miss Lewinsky, ever smoked weed. We do know what she did smoke. 🍆. Little Bill. 💨

    Speaking of going to pot, the hippies over there 👉 toked 17;x y’day with 10 of them by their chief pothead 🙋🏻‍♀️ *cough*. 🚬 💨. Terrific .588 ratio.

    Looks like China is sending weather 🎈 over us today. Must be cold 60,000 feet up there. Who is controlling this 🎈? Is it just floating? Can we pop it? 🍿 I think Sleepy Joe may want to shoot it down. Maybe it’s Dorothy 👠? Up, up and awayyyyyy!,

    Please keep the Peace ✌️
