CAPE HORN: CAPE HORN: HOW A TRADING MONOPO HOW A TRADING MONOPOLY ...

Answer:  THINK STRAIT

(An excellent stinky pun!  And, it’s both a nice history lesson and a geography lesson.  Most of us are so far removed from school that we probably need a refresher course, as to where it is.  It’s way down near the bottom of Chile and Argentina, and it cuts through more mainland Chile and Tierra del Fuego, which is an archipelago, that is part Chilean and part Argentinian.  The strait provided a somewhat safer way to get from the Atlantic to the Pacific, than taking the Drake Passage.

There were no new clue words today.  However, all of the jumbles did come up as new.  No stumpers, for me today.  The answer letter layout was a cryptic eleven letter jumble.  If you had forgotten your history/geography lessons then you might have struggled some to get the final answer.

Fine classroom cartoon.  It looks like it’s likely a high school class, but that’s just my guess.  I like the map.  Jeff even threw in Las Malvinas, better known to English speakers as the Falkland Islands.  Fun Jumble!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
