Clue/Question:  When the competitive identical twins celebrated their birthday, it was – – – 

MOMS CRAZY COOKING: Twins Birthday Party = TWO Cakes

Answer:  SIBLING REVELRY

(They likely started fighting in the womb.  And, it will probably continue til they’re in the tomb.  But they’ll do just about everything together.  Identical twins have a kind of inseparable bond.  I guess it’s because they started from a single egg.  I cannot imagine having a twin, let alone an identical one.  I’m pretty sure my parents were glad they didn’t have twins.  Although, my Dad was a twin.  But he was a fraternal twin.

All of today’s clue words are regulars to the Jumble game.  Surprisingly, all of the jumbles have come up as new.  It took me a few looks to see “larger”.  Don’t ask me why.  Just a good jumble, I guess.  The answer letter layout was a very ambitious fourteen letter jumble.  A little intimidating at first.  But there were enough clues in the cartoon and the clue/question to make for a swift solve.

Great birthday party cartoon!  I was going to guess that the brothers were thirteen, but then I counted the candles on both cakes.  They’re twelve!  I guess today’s final answer was a semi-homophonic pun.  Just different vowels.  A lot of great birthdays today.  I’ll just throw two at you:  Harvey Keitel is 82, and Stephen Colbert is 57!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  After Sean Connery retired from playing 007, they were able to make – – –

Answer:  MOORE BOND FILMS

(A marvelous stinky pun!  And, one that some of our younger readers may have struggled to get.  Not that we have a whole lot of young puzzlers, but there are some out there.  The younger ones probably only know Daniel Craig and Pierce Brosnan.  Possibly Timothy Dalton.  But, Roger who???  Roger actually holds the title for most Bond movies, at seven, followed by Sean Connery, at six.  You could call it a tie, if you count “Never Say Never Again”, which was kind of a remake of “Thunderball”, and by a different production company than the other Bond films.  I remember seeing that one with my semi girlfriend, Doreen, back in 1983.  She was so pretty, but she was just not that into me.  Heavy sigh!

No new clue words today.  But, it’s another day where all the jumbles are coming up as new.  No stumpers today though.  A very impressive fourteen letter answer letter layout jumble.  Nothing obvious about it.  Again, if I weren’t of a certain age I might have struggled to get the final answer.  The quotation marks were a help.

Nice cartoon of a ’70s bijou.  Great ‘fro, or perm, on the ticket guy.  The main characters were not over-the-top 1973 types.  But, still a nice period piece cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
