Visual Description:  Two young girls, doing the stereotypical thang.

CENUL  =  UNCLE,  CEOTT  =  OCTET,  DIQUIL  =  LIQUID,  DESEYP  =  SPEEDY   —   Giving us:  ULOLDPED

Clue/Question:  When Barbie would go out on a date, she’d get this.

Answer:  DOLLED UP

(The expression is really more:  ALL DOLLED UP, but I think most people got this.  Very surprisingly, I had some difficulty with three of the four clue words, today!  The only one that I saw immediately was “liquid”.  It took me a few looks to get both “octet” and . . . “uncle”.  Maybe, because they both start with vowels?  I don’t know.  I know I usually don’t look for uncles.  Although, I am always on the lookout for aunts!  Just for perusal purposes, mind you.  Yer uncle knows enough not to touch!  I even wrote down ESPYED for the fourth clue word.  Strange, my newspaper doesn’t have spell-check, like my computer does.  But, I was not real confident about it, so when I was adding the S,Y and E to the answer letter layout I wrote them in very faintly.  Then, when I looked at the cartoon and read the clue/question, I confirmed my own error and went back to DESEYP.  Knowing I needed a P,E and D allowed me to back into – what should have been a pretty easy – “speedy”!  Good job on the answer letter layout, by the way.  Cute cartoon.  My daughter, Katrina, had a few Barbies, but she hated playing with them.  She never liked any dolls much, at all.  She wasn’t a tom-boy, or anything.  She just didn’t dig dolls.  She was always more of an arts and crafts kind of kid, when it came to playing.   That’s enough for today, guys.  Carry on.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Zemanta provided a whole slew of Barbie pics, and roughly 2/3s of them say:  “nominated for deletion”  I’ve never seen this before, and I can only surmise that Mattel has some licensing objections to them.  Sad.     YUR
